    In the aftermath of Sunday’s win over the Eagles [url=]Chuck Howley Color Rush Jersey[/url] , you’ve probably been reading all sorts of impressive numbers about Dak Prescott’s performance. How he engineered his 13th game-winning drive, how he now has the second-most wins since 2016 behind only Tom Brady, and much more. And all of that is hugely impressive.But what very few people know is that Prescott achieved an even rarer statistical milestone for just the second time in his career on Sunday, the QB Trifecta.In 1961, Y.A. Tittle of the New York Giants became the first quarterback in modern NFL history to complete a QB Trifecta by passing for more than three hundred yards, completing at least three quarters of his passes and throwing three or more touchdowns. The Oxford Dictionary defines a Trifecta as a “run of three wins or grand events”, and while the term is mostly used in horse racing, a stat line of 300 - 3/4 - 3 is a combination of three pretty grand achievements for a QB and can therefore also be called a Trifecta.On Sunday, Prescott became the latest quarterback to throw for a QB Trifecta when he finished the game with a stat line of 455 passing yards [url=][/url] , a 78% completion rate (42/54) and three touchdown passes.Prescott’s performance was the 219th QB Trifecta since 1961, and while the Trifecta has become more frequent over the last few years, it still remains a rarity, as the table below illustrates: Looking at how many times that statistical milestone has been achieved over the years tells you all you’ll ever want to know about how the passing game has evolved in the NFL.For Prescott, it was the second QB Trifecta game of his career, the first being the 2016 game against Baltimore (303 yards, 75% CMP, 3 TDs in a 27-17 win). In that Ravens game, Prescott looked shaky in the first quarter [url=]Tony Romo Jersey[/url] , and had issues with his accuracy that led to an unimpressive 59.9 first-quarter passer rating. But things picked up from there, as Prescott posted a 142.6 passer rating for the remaining three quarters, going 23-for-28, including 10-for-10 on his last ten pass attempts.In Sunday’s Eagles game, Prescott also started off slow with a passer rating of 64.8 trough the first three quarters, but then posted a 156.9 passer rating for the fourth quarter and OT, going a ridiculous 17-20, including 8-for-8 on his last eight pass attempts.Of course, the 300/75/3 mark is an arbitrary cutoff stat like many others used in sports [url=]Jamize Olawale Color Rush Jersey[/url] , but the numbers do have a certain ring to them, and they are not numbers that every Tom, Dick or Eli puts up every day. Here’s a list of all the active quarterbacks who’ve had at least two games in which they passed for a QB Trifecta in the regular season or in the playoffs: Looking at the table above, it’s no surprise to find the usual suspects (Brees, Brady, and Rivers, et al) at the top of the leaderboard, though their Trifecta games have mostly come in the latter part of their careers as they became more experienced and more efficient as passers. Only three active QBs have managed two Trifecta games in their first three years in the league: Matthew Stafford, Jared Goff [url=][/url] , and Prescott. If you judge a QB by the company he keeps, that’s fairly good company to be in: two No. 1 picks and that guy in Dallas. The Pro Football Hall of Fame is the most elite fraternity in professional football. It’s the archives for the game’s best coaches, players, and contributors. There are plenty of Dallas Cowboys in the HOF, but there are still some that deserve to be in that haven’t gotten their bronze busts and gold jackets. That could be partly rectified by the Class of 2019 which saw its semifinalists announced on Tuesday night. Jimmy Johnson and Darren Woodson are among them.Many were upset a year ago when Philadelphia Eagles safety Brian Dawkins got in ahead of Darren Woodson. Woody has been a player many have petitioned to get in for some time now and this could finally be the year if safeties are something the voters are prioritizing. Being named a semifinalist is a huge deal for him as he wasn’t one a year ago.This is territory that former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson has entered before. While there is certainly a case to be made for the 2-time Super Bowl winner one of the arguments against Jimmy is that the body of work is simply too small. Obviously he served as the architect of one of the greatest dynasties in professional sports history, but this is a subjective process after all.There are several safeties and coaches on the list of semifinalists so it will come down to whether or not the voters think Woodson and/or Johnson were better than the rest. We’ve seen the voters put multiples of a single position in during a single class, but they do also like to keep it somewhat even.This list of semifinalists will be whittled down to 15 finalists in January. Good luck to Darren Woodson and Jimmy Johnson.
