Prescott passes Brady for NFL record


Dak Prescott has had a remarkable rookie season and it continued for the Dallas Cowboys quarterback as he broke Tom Brady's NFL record.

Prescott entered Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers with 155 pass attempts without an interception to start his career.

That was an NFL rookie record, but he was eight attempts shy of breaking Brady's league mark for attempts to start a career.

Brady had 162 straight pass attempts before his first pick in his second NFL season.

Prescott passed Brady in the first quarter of Sunday's game at Lambeau Field with a 15-yard completion to Terrance Williams.

Three plays after Prescott passed Brady on Sunday, he appeared to throw his first interception.

Prescott was hit by Green Bay's Julius Peppers and the ball popped in the air. It was snatched by Packers linebacker Joe Thomas and initially ruled a pick.

Replays showed Peppers had slapped the ball out of Prescott's hand before his arm was in motion and the interception was changed to a fumble, the second lost fumble of Prescott's young career. 

He did finally throw a pick when Packers safety Morgan Burnett made a diving interception late in the third quarter to snap Prescott's streak at 176 attempts.
