Dak Prescott ,career ended today in Dallas after being traded for roughly $98.6 million…..

Dak Prescott had quite possibly the best season of his NFL career in 2024.

The Cowboys quarterback posted career-highs in completion percentage and passer rating while throwing for more than 4,500 yards and 36 touchdowns. He also kept turnovers to a minimum, with just nine over 17 starts.

Yet he once again fell short in the postseason. Prescott’s playoff history is checkered at best, with turnovers frequently plaguing him and the Cowboys’ offense.

Here’s a closer look at Prescott’s playoff record after Sunday’s 48-32 wild-card loss to the Packers.

Dak Prescott playoff record

Prescott is 2-5 in the NFL playoffs. He threw for 403 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the most recent loss to Green Bay.

Prescott’s excellent rookie year ended abruptly in 2016, when the Cowboys lost at home to the Packers in the divisional round. Despite the loss, Prescott impressed with 302 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

The 30-year-old quarterback has had just two other playoff games with multiple touchdown passes: He tossed four in a brilliant performance against the Buccaneers in the wild-card round last season, and he threw three in this season’s loss to the Packers.

Prescott posted a passer rating under 70 in two of his playoff starts, though, both against the 49ers. Prescott completed less than 54% of his passes and threw an interception in an upset loss to San Francisco in the 2021 playoffs, and he underwhelmed with two interceptions in the divisional round last season as the Cowboys scored only 12 points against the 49ers.

The 2-5 record is close to Tony Romo’s 2-4 playoff record, and Romo faced similar criticism for his struggles to win when it mattered.
