If you’re confused regarding the decision of the Dallas Cowboys to stick with Dak Prescott, consider this: The offense under Prescott is on a record run of production.

Via the NFL, the Cowboys have gained 400 yards in eight straight games. That ties the longest single-season streak set by the 2007 Patriots and the 2013 Broncos. The Patriots went 16-0 and made it to the Super Bowl; the Broncos made it to the Super Bowl, too.

While the offense is more than one guy, Prescott is doing his part. He’s the first rookie quarterback in league history to throw for a least 300 yards and multiple touchdown passes in consecutive games. Also, he is the third rookie since the merger to have multiple touchdown passes in five straight games, joining John Elway in 1983 and Russell Wilson in 2012.
