Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott received a lot of the blame for the team's recent loss to the Packers. He finished the game with 265 passing yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. 

There's a narrative floating around this week that Prescott is the "weak link" on the Cowboys this season.

During an appearance on 105.3 The Fan, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones denied the idea that Prescott is holding this team back. 

"I can say that's not correct," Jones said. "The strength that I look at of our chance to win a championship is Dak and his leadership at that position. ... I don't think that's accurate.

"Dak brings us a separator. Now, does that mean Dak's going to win every game or make every comeback or every key situation? Of course not. But by the same token, if you were constructing the possibility of competing for a Super Bowl, I would start on this team right there with Dak. He's that integral to us really being able to have the year we want to have." 

Prescott has to avoid costly turnovers if the Cowboys are going to reach their full potential. He has thrown three interceptions over the past two games. 

The Cowboys have a pivotal matchup set for this weekend against the Vikings. 

A bounce-back performance from Prescott would help silence the critics - even if it's just for a week.
