The Dallas Cowboys have a huge Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
For Cowboys fans who have been cautiously optimistic about the team this season, a win over the Chiefs could push them into jubilation.
Both teams have dynamic young quarterbacks.
Of the two, Patrick Mahomes has accomplished more in his young career with the Super Bowl Championship and the NFL and Super Bowl MVP awards.

However, Dak Prescott is playing at or near the best he has ever played since entering the NFL.
It is only normal that Prescott would be asked about Mahomes in the leadup to the game; this is the first time the two have faced off against each other.
One question in particular was interesting.
It pertained to Mahomes’ no-look passes.
What Prescott Was Asked
Ask if he ever tried the Mahomes’ no-look pass, Prescott said:
“I think every quarterback tries to incorporate that. Have I tried it? Maybe a time or two. I think a lot of times I catch my receivers off guard with it so I’m not that big a fan of it.’’

While Mahomes has made a living out of that no-look pass, Prescott is not wrong.
The plan can backfire.
The worst-case scenario is it can lead to an interception.
Mahomes Isn’t The Only QB To Use No-Look Passes
Though he gets the credit for the no-look passes, he is not the originator.
In fact, Rodgers had a dry remark when asked about Mahomes’ no-look passes last year.
“Yeah I know. Since none of us have been doing it for a long time.”
Pat McAfee: I’m so thankful Patrick Mahomes brought the no-look pass to the NFL.
Aaron Rodgers: Yeah I know. Since none of us have been doing it for a long time. 🙄
Rodgers then goes on and praises Matthew Stafford and says he doesn’t get enough credit. pic.twitter.com/bXOyS354s7

The bottom line is that there are a lot of talented quarterbacks in the NFL.
They approach the game differently based on their skill sets.
Not everyone needs to utilize the same style or type of play to be successful.
That is what makes the NFL so much fun to watch; players play the same positions but approach their craft in their own unique ways.
