10 Funniest Tweets About The Return Of Dak
After injuring his throwing thumb in Week 1 of 2022 NFL play... by Week 7 - Dak was ready to come back. And he wasn't taking any chances. Prescott came back to face a struggling Detroit Lions team at home, a team where he has an undefeated 3-0 record against. And now? 4-0, baby!
