ARLINGTON, Texas — With a 13-yard completion in the first quarter to Brice Butler, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott established an NFL rookie record with his 135th straight pass without an interception.
Cowboys’ Bryant misses second game for leg
Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was ruled out from playing Sunday after missing practice all week as he recovers from a fracture near his knee.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz saw his interception-less streak come to an end in Sunday’s 24-23 loss to the Detroit Lions with a pick on his 135th pass of the season.
Prescott and Wentz had been trading the record in recent weeks. The previous rookie record was 95 by the Cowboys’ Chad Hutchinson in 2002.
Prescott entered Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals with 1,019 yards on 90-for-132 passing with three touchdown passes in the Cowboys’ 3-1 start. Tom Brady has the most passes to open a career with 162 passes without an interception in 2000-01.
Prescott still has a ways to go to set the Cowboys’ record by any quarterback. Troy Aikman went 216 attempts without an interception in 1999. Aikman had a string of 184 passes in 1995, and Tony Romo had a string of 174 passes without a pick in 2013.
