Dez Bryant was blown away by Dak Prescott‘s clutch performance against the Seattle Seahawks. The former Dallas Cowboys star receiver, who has been in the news for rather controversial reasons, shared his thoughts after Thursday night’s victory at AT&T Stadium.

Prescott went into the game with MVP talks looming over—not beating any team with a .500 record or above. So the Seahawks were a litmus test for Dallas, but more importantly, the 30-year-old could finally be considered a legitimate contender for the best player in the NFL.

He capped the day with 29 pass completions from 41 attempts (70%) and threw three touchdowns and no interceptions. Not to mention, he carried the ball seven times for 23 yards and almost scored a rushing TD, only to be pushed out of bounds by Seahawks cornerback Tariq Woolen.

Failing to reach the end zone lit a fire under Prescott, and it showed when he almost butted heads with Woolen. Witnessing their quarterback give it his all to prove himself riled up the Arlington crowd. His enthusiasm and vigor also reached social media, as Dez Bryant wrote:

Dak Prescott addressed the Cowboys’ first win against winning opponents

The Seattle Seahawks drove into Texas with a 6-5 record, yet they were still considered an unknown prospect. As per SportsLine predictions, the Cowboys were predicted to win by 9 points.

In the end, the game finished 41-35 in Dallas’ favor (1 scoreless game). This victory meant that the Cowboys have now won 14 straight games at Jerry Land. Even though the win doesn’t affect their NFC seed standings (5th behind the Atlanta Falcons), it showed that Prescott and Co. are capable of beating teams with winning records.

During the post-match press conference, reporters asked the two-time Pro Bowler what their preparations were before facing Seattle.

We talked about the records earlier this week. We can't pick out how we matched up, but we obviously know the stretch that we have coming up ahead, and this was a big one to get. The first one with a winning record, but more importantly, in the fashion we did in tough conditions.

The game began with D.K. Metcalf silencing the home crowd with a 73-yard touchdown and forming their own. The Seahawks kept hold of the game until the fourth quarter rolled in. Metcalf scored his second TD of the night moments after the quarter began.

However, the Cowboys cut down the lead with Brandon Aubrey‘s 26th field goal of the season. Then he sealed the victory with a 12-yard run by tight end Jake Ferguson from Prescott’s pass.

It went back and forth. Down at halftime, down in the fourth quarter. The guys and the team making plays when needed and playing the ultimate complimentary football.

This was a much-needed win considering the teams the Cowboys will face in the next three match days. They will welcome their NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles (10-1), whom they lost to (28-23) earlier in the season.
