Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has been named the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year. He beat out his teammate Ezekiel Elliott and the other offensive rookies to win the award.

Prescott is the first quarterback in NFL history to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year after being drafted outside of the top two picks. He was drafted by the Cowboys in the fourth-round.

The belief was that Elliott was going to run away with it, as he ran away from NFL defenses. Prescott did not have a guaranteed job when the season began unlike Elliott, who was expected to start from the get-go.

Following a preseason injury to Tony Romo, he came in against the Seattle Seahawks and never looked back. He started all 16 games and went 13-3 with two of the three losses against the New York Giants.

Prescott had 3,667 passing yards with 23 touchdowns and four interceptions

He led the Cowboys to the playoffs, before they were eliminated in the Divisional Round by the Green Bay Packers.
