“Dak Prescott’s Outstanding 2023 Performance Sparks MVP Debate Against Lamar Jackson”

It’s almost certain that Lamar Jackson, the quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, will

secure the 2023 NFL MVP Award. Jackson has led the Ravens to the top seed in the AFC,

demonstrated impressive stats with seven touchdowns and no interceptions in his recent two games,

and maintained a remarkable 102.7 quarterback rating. Despite his outstanding

performance and being the frontrunner for the MVP after a stellar 2023 campaign,

there is a statistical argument favoring another quarterback for the award – Dak Prescott of the

Dallas Cowboys.

Here are the comparative statistics for the 2023 NFL season between Lamar Jackson and Dak Prescott:

Lamar Jackson Dak Prescott
Games Played 16 17
Pass Rating 102.7 105.9
Total TD/TO 29/13 38/11
Comp Pct 67.18% 69.4%
Total Yards 4,499 4,758

Prescott led the Cowboys to a 12-5 season record, winning the NFC East and

securing the second seed in the NFC Playoffs. In 17 games, Prescott threw for an impressive 36 touchdowns, accumulating 4,516 passing yards with nine interceptions. His overall performance

included 4,758 total yards, 38 touchdowns, a 69.4% completion percentage, and an

outstanding 105.9 quarterback rating. The Cowboys boasted the league’s

highest-scoring offense, averaging 29.9 points per game, and had the fifth-best defense, allowing only 18.5 points per game.

In contrast, the Ravens, with Jackson at the helm, clinched the top seed in the

AFC and enjoyed a weekend off. Despite winning one more game than Prescott’s

Cowboys, Jackson played one fewer game. Jackson’s season stats included 4,499

total yards, 29 touchdowns, 13 turnovers (two more than Prescott in one fewer game), and a 67% completion percentage. Even if Jackson had played the entire 17-game schedule like Prescott,

he would fall short in touchdowns and completion percentage while already having more turnovers.

The Ravens possessed the fourth-highest scoring offense and boasted the league’s best defense in points per game allowed.
