Dak Prescott, Cowboys answer with 75-yard touchdown drive

Mike Florio and Chris Simms explore why the Cowboys need to have an “all-time night” against the Bucs’ defense to stand a chance in their season opener and evaluate what to expect from Dak Prescott after his injuries.

Injury? What injury?

Dak Prescott hasn’t played since Oct. 11 of last season when he dislocated and fractured his right ankle. He missed a month of training camp and the entire preseason with a strained shoulder. Yet, he has looked as good as ever thus far.

The Cowboys quarterback is 10-of-13 for 124 yards and a touchdown.

He went 7-for-7 for all 75 yards on the Cowboys’ second possession, a touchdown drive that answered the Bucs’ touchdown drive. CeeDee Lamb scored the touchdown on a 22-yard throw by Prescott.

The teams are tied 7-7 heading into the second quarter.

Bucs cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting was injured on Lamb’s touchdown, getting his right arm caught in between Lamb and teammate Antoine Winfield. Murphy-Bunting was helped off the field and headed to the training room.

Ross Cockrell will enter the game as the nickel corner if Murphy-Bunting can’t return.
