The 5 Biggest Takeaways From Our First Sunday Of The NFL Season

2. There’s No QB Controversy In Dallas



Despite playing without Tony Romo, Dallas entered Week 1 against the New York Giants with plenty of confidence, hoping preseason standout, Dak Prescott, could lead them to victory. Things didn’t necessarily go to plan, as Prescott completed 25-of-45 passes for 227 yards. While it wasn’t horrible, Prescott also didn’t get much help from his star running back. Ezekiel Elliott averaged a disappointing 2.5 yards per carry in his NFL debut, ending the day with 51 yards. Dak Prescott isn’t the franchise savior so many were hoping for, so when Romo is healthy enough to return, the starting spot will still be his.
