Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott lost his control and slammed his helmet in frustration and screamed, “Go for f–king two,”. He was frustrated and irritated to the point that he preferred to go for a two-point conversion instead of relying on an already struggling kicker.
Manning cast and Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning were seen sharing their disgust over Brett’s bad performance. The latter briefly went quiet after Brett’s third shanked kick and shouted, “Why are we kicking it?!”. He then jokingly said can we cut a guy at halftime of a playoff game.

Dak Prescott, one of the best players of the Dallas Cowboys also came in support of the Kicker and told the media that he was definitely shocked and irritated after witnessing a historic mistake on the field but he believes in Brett and he is very good as a player.
He further told the media that he had a word with Brett saying He is Money Maher’s biggest fan and talked to him individually after the game, just telling him, ‘Hey let that go, we’re going to need it’ I just played like s–t a week ago, so that happens.’
