Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will lead his team to the Divisional Round of the playoffs following their Wild Card victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night, which may mark the final game for legendary quarterback Tom Brady.
Following the end of the game, Prescott and Brady talked, and Prescott discussed that exchange in the post-game press conference.
“He just said that I played well,” Prescott said, according to The Athletic’s Jon Machota. “I told him good job, he told me good job. I just shook his hand. He’s obviously a guy that I have the ultimate respect for. He’s won more than anyone has in this league. He’s been the epitome of how to play this game for years and how to take care of your body. So much respect for him. But that’s about (our) defense. The way they went out there and took care of business. This isn’t some Dak versus Tom Brady matchup. That was Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Our defense played their asses off and gave us an opportunity to score more points than they did.”
As Brady takes his time to make a decision on his playing future, Prescott will hope that the Cowboys can continue their playoff success next weekend.
