On paper, the Dallas Cowboys had one of the best-looking offenses in the league ahead of the 2020 NFL season. Unfortunately, they didn't get to see much of it due to quarterback Dak Prescott fracturing and dislocating his right ankle in Week 5. However, a lot of time has passed since then. Prescott is now $160 million richer and, with his ankle healing properly, looking to rebound from last season's disappointment.
Fans of "America's Team" will be thrilled to hear that Prescott is already impressing at the organization's minicamp. Cowboys reporter Clarence Hill Jr. said that the 27-year-old signal-caller looked "sharp" in the team's 7-on-7 drills. While it isn't exactly a full practice, it's encouraging to see just how well Prescott has come back from such a gruesome injury.

Hill added that Prescott made some "nice completions" to both CeeDee Lamb and Dalton Schultz. What's important about that part is that Lamb has only played in five games with Prescott, so it's necessary for him to develop chemistry with him — especially as the Cowboys' No. 2 wideout. Still, the 22-year-old wideout did look good in the games that his QB played in last season, recording 433 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns in that span.
Before getting injured in 2020, Prescott was hoping to build off his performance from the previous season. In 2019, the two-time Pro Bowler finished the campaign with 4,902 passing yards and 30 touchdowns to 11 interceptions. He's going to need another performance like that if Dallas wants to win more than one playoff game for the first time since the 1995 season.
Though, the odds are looking pretty good that the Cowboys will make the playoffs next season. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently favoring them to qualify for the 2021 playoffs at -156 odds. However, the Cowboys are far from being Super Bowl favorites. Their odds of going on a championship run are +2800, which ranks 13th in the NFL.
