Dallas Cowboys head coach, Jason Garrett, announced Monday that he has no plans to bench quarterback, Dak Prescott.

Prescott has gone 11-2 as the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys and has been in both the NFL Rookie of the Year and NFL Most Valuable Player conversations. He has been surprisingly effective for the NFC leading, Jason Garrett squad after replacing injured star player, Tony Romo. After a frustrating Sunday night loss, the first for the Cowboys in over 90 days, to the New York Giants, however, there were calls to pull Prescott in favor of long time starter, Romo.

“You can make it as simple or complex as you want to make it,” said Jason Garrett on Monday. “It’s pretty simple for us: Dak’s going to play quarterback as we go forward.”

Owner, Jerry Jones, is backing Garrett up. According to Garrett, Prescott has no reason to fear for his starting position.

“We’re just focused on Dak playing quarterback for us,” said Garrett. “We’ll continue to do that in our preparation this week and as we go forward. He’s done a really good job for us up to this point. We’ve won 11 out of 13 games that he’s started. He’s handled really every situation as well as you could handle it. So we’ll just continue that way. Tony will be in a backup role for us, and he’ll be ready to go if he’s called upon to play. But Dak’s done an outstanding job up to this point. Excited to see him continue to play.”
