Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott led the league with a career-high 15 interceptions last season, but he’s confident 2023 will be different.
“I won’t have 10 interceptions this year,” Prescott said, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Gabriel Trevino.
In addition to his regular-season total, Prescott threw two picks in the divisional round against the San Francisco 49ers. His 17 interceptions overall tied him with Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen.
Prescott, who only played 12 games in 2022, also accumulated a 3.8% interception percentage. His previous career high in picks came in 2017 when he threw 13.
“I know who I am, and you can go back and take away half of those off drops,” Prescott said, per Trevino.
“I’m not saying it’s on the receiver, but if you cut that in half, then we start talking about those; nobody is talking about it.”
Prescott will run a new offense in 2023 after the Cowboys mutually agreed to part ways with former play-caller Kellen Moore. The two-time Pro Bowler is looking forward to a fresh start with head coach Mike McCarthy running the offense.
“Some of it is the offense and them understanding exactly where we are,” Prescott said, per Trevino. “Mike does an amazing job with those guys. They know where to be … when they’re getting looked at. That’s going to be a big jump.”
Prescott has 24,943 passing yards with 166 touchdown passes and 65 interceptions in 97 career games.
