The Dallas Cowboys found themselves down 7-0 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first quarter Thursday evening. Dak Prescott was not having any of it.

Making his first appearance in live-game action since suffering a horrible ankle injury last October, Prescott looked like his old self.

That included the two-time Pro Bowl signal-caller connecting with CeeDee Lamb on a 22-yard touchdown pass late in the first quarter to tie the game up.

There are a few different things to look at here. Prescott delivered an absolute strike to Lamb despite seeing protection break down both along the interior and the outside of the offensive line. Prescott was also hit big-time on the play.

More than the highlight-reel touchdown pass, this is a clear indication that Dak is 100% recovered from the injury — both physically and mentally.

As for the game itself, Prescott completed 10 of 13 passes for 124 yards and that score to open things up. Two of those incomplete passes were due to Lamb drops.
