Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is inching closer toward becoming the first player ever in NFL history to throw five or fewer interceptions in his career-first 500 passes. The Mississipi State product needs to have at least one of his next two passes not intercepted. The 24-year-old, who has played in 17 regular season games so far, intercepted the football just four times in 498 passes.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is pleased with what he sees from his starting quarterback Prescott. The 2016 Pro Bowl quarterback has just entered his sophomore season in the league.

The fourth-round of the 2016 draft has proved to be a steal.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he thinks Prescott is a ''good decision-maker," to Todd Archer of ESPN. The coach added that the 24-year-old ''values and understands the importance of football.''

Coach Garett further praises Prescott

Prescott completed 24-of-39 of his passes in Week 1 against the New York Giants on Sunday. The Cowboys opened their season a strong tale, defeating the division-rivals 19-3. Prescott would love to lead his side to its second win when they meet the Denver Broncos in Colorado this Sunday.

Prescott led Dallas to a 13-3 regular season record during his rookie year, which was enough to seal them home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

However, the Cowboys fell short at AT&T Stadium to the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round. If nothing else, Prescott has given the fans hope that he could potentially lead the franchise to its first Super Bowl title since 1995.

''He is a natural leader and has such a command of the offense,'' coach Garrett acknowledged.

WR Williams injured

Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams may be forced to miss his first ever NFL game this Sunday. The 27-year-old injured his ankle on the first play of the game against the Giants. The wide receiver made a comeback to the game, collecting 68 yards on six caught passes from Prescott. He wore a protective boot after the game.

Williams has played in each of Dallas' 65 games in the last four years. The Baylor product was drafted by the Cowboys in round three of the 2013 NFL draft. He will be hoping to be available to coach Garrett against the Broncos.

"He's always been a warrior for us and he doesn't get a lot of credit because he does a lot of the dirty work, but I mean he's a heckuva player," Williams' fellow teammate Beasley said of him, per Todd Anchor of ESPN. "It showed. Just the reason they brought the guy back."
