What would it take for the Cowboys to bench Dak Prescott in favor of Tony Romo?
NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport revealed this morning what he believes it would take for the Dallas Cowboys to bench Dak Prescott in favor of Tony Romo.
Basically: a "prolonged" slump from Prescott.
“Tony Romo is the backup, that is his role, and everyone is fine with that,” Rapoport told NFL Network’s Rich Eisen. “It would take a prolonged slump from Dak Prescott in order to call in Tony Romo. He needs to struggle, maybe over the course of a month. Maybe they would call in Tony Romo.
“Make no mistake, this is Dak Prescott’s team. Now and for the future.”
The Cowboys and the Buccaneers are set to kick off at 8:30 p.m. E.T. tonight.
