On "Romo's Team," Prescott Not Worried About Long-Term Role

ARLINGTON, Texas -- If there is going to be a quarterback controversy in Dallas, it will be news to Dak Prescott.

While there is excitement surrounding the rookie after he collected his first career win Sunday in Washington, even he isn't buying into the hype that he's ready to unseat Tony Romo. Or at least he's not saying it publicly.

"This is Romo's team. I've said that since the moment I was named the starter when he went down," Prescott said Monday following an NFL Play 60 youth event in Arlington. "I'm just trying to do my best to win games and put this team in a successful position to do that week in and week out when he comes back. I'll leave that to the big guys." 

Prescott engineered an 80-yard game-winning drive in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Redskins. He ran for his first career touchdown but still has yet to throw for score. 

More impressively is that Prescott has yet to throw an interception, which is an NFL record for rookies in their first two starts.
