1. Dak Prescott
Prescott played fine over the first two weeks of the season, but he wasn't the reason we were dominating. He appeared to be playing more conservatively, settling for shorter, more accurate passes while avoiding big risks.
That game manager version of Prescott was nowhere to be found on Sunday, however, as he reverted into the shaky QB who led the NFL in interceptions last year. He couldn't make big throws when he needed to, causing multiple drives to stall out. He also threw a brutal pick in the red zone in the fourth quarter, putting the game on ice for Arizona.
Prescott's turnover issues were a major problem last year, so it was concerning to see them rear their ugly head during his biggest throw of the season so far.
With 16 interceptions in his last 15 regular-season games, Prescott needs to stop making these costly mistakes. It's getting increasingly hard to trust him in big moments, especially when he can't even come through against the Cardinals.
New England has a much tougher defense than Arizona, so Prescott can't afford to make those types of bad decisions next week. If he does, the Patriots will surely make him pay.
