ARLINGTON, Texas — Ask a doubt all we want, though Jerry Jones continues to make it clear: When Tony Romo is healthy, he will lead a Dallas Cowboys.

“Tony is a No. 1 quarterback,” pronounced a Cowboys’ owners and ubiquitous manager, after his team’s autocratic 28-14 win opposite a Cincinnati Bengals.

Prescott sets rookie symbol for INT-less attempts

Dak Prescott will keep a rookie record for pass attempts though an interception for now after Carson Wentz’s strain finished and a Cowboys quarterback threw his 135th pass though a pick.

Rookie Dak Prescott softened to 4-1 with Sunday’s win. He has now left 155 passes though an interception and needs 8 some-more to mangle Tom Brady‘s NFL record for a many uninterrupted passes though an interception to start a career.

Prescott finished 18 of 24 passes for 227 yards and one touchdown pass opposite a Bengals. He also ran for a touchdown, his third of a season.

“We’re going to have a oppulance of being means to, we think, see them both,” Jones said. “Now we don’t wish to take anything — assume that Dak is going to be indispensably healthy. we don’t wish to assume anything like that, though we acquire a event of carrying Dak personification during this turn and Tony behind in glorious health. It’s going to be unequivocally special for a Cowboys.”

Romo will have an MRI on Monday, and Jones pronounced a expectancy is it will uncover a quarterback’s application detonate suffered on Aug. 25 has entirely healed. Romo has stepped adult his conditioning work over a past few weeks and has been throwing for a past 4 weeks.

Jones did not wish to name a probable lapse for Romo. However, Oct. 30 opposite a Philadelphia Eagles has been a aim date.

Dallas plays during Green Bay on Sunday and afterwards has a bye week.

Jones pronounced Romo “is unequivocally on schedule.”

Prescott has exceeded expectations, and a Cowboys matched final year’s win sum with Sunday’s victory.

While some see a intensity debate in a future, Jones sees opportunity, harkening behind to a problem a Cowboys had in anticipating Troy Aikman’s deputy from 2000 to 2006, before Romo took over.

“I’ll uncover we some tough days around here though a quarterback [that would] unequivocally wish to make we pout, OK?” Jones said. “That’s not a problem to have that.”
