Prescott has not turned over a new leaf thus far, as was expected by Dallas after his down season in 2017. Now, with Jerry Jones talking about wanting to extend his franchise quarterback, it would benefit Prescott to finish this year on a high note.

At the halfway mark, the Cowboys sport a dismal 3-5 record and Prescott has manged to score only 12 total touchdowns. The hope would be that third-year quarterback can start conquering his shortcomings — which would be timing and accuracy, according to former Cowboys quarterback, Troy Aikman.
