Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was happy to open the season with a win, but insists he could have done better in Week 1. Dallas defeated division-rivals New York Giants 19-3 on Sunday night at the AT&T Stadium. The Giants never stood a chance as the Cowboys controlled the match from the start. The Cowboys made amends for Week 1 loss suffered to the Giants a year ago.

Prescott, 24, completed 24-of-39 passes, enough for 268 yards and a touchdown. Prescott struggled a bit at the beginning of the match but improved as the game progressed. The fourth-round pick of the 2016 NFL draft opened his NFL journey with a loss suffered to the Giants.

Prescott said he did his job of giving the Cowboys "a chance to win," per Todd Archer of ESPN. However, the 24-year-old claimed that from a ''mechanics standpoint'' his ''throws and accuracy'' were not where he wanted them to be.

Prescott scouted the Broncos

Prescott's attention now turns to Week 2, where his side is set to meet the Denver Broncos in Colorado. Prescott watched Monday Night Football clash between the Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers. Denver beat the Chargers 24-21, but almost blew a big lead after losing the fourth quarter 0-14. Chargers kicker Younghoe Koo missed a field goal which would send the game into overtime.

Dallas and Denver haven't met in a regular season game since 2013.

Back then, the Cowboys lost 48-51 at home to the Broncos. Whoever wins will perfect this season.

Prescott admitted that he was "definitely watching" the game because the Broncos are Dallas' next opponent.

"You are always looking for something the offense is doing, or the defense is doing in case you have to play them," Prescott added.

Prescott praises the Broncos defense

Prescott is not taking anything for granted as he is well-aware that he will be facing a tough Denver defense. The Broncos, led by five-time outside linebacker Von Miller, have one of the best defenses in the NFL. On the other side, the Cowboys, led by Prescott, as well as running back Ezekiel Elliott and veterans Dez Bryant and Jason Witten, have one of the best offenses in the league.

Prescott praised Denver's defense by saying "they're one of the best in the AFC." The quarterback used the words ''fast and savvy'' to describe the Broncos' defense.

Prescott also added his team side is "excited for the matchup' against a good Broncos team. He also claimed it would be "one of the better defenses" Dallas will play this campaign.
