greatest weakness: High volume games
Here is one that should be put to the test this season. Coming in 2020, Prescott played in 28 “high-volume” games – games in which a quarterback falls back 40 or more times – and he achieved a PFF grade of at least 80.0 only once in those. , 35th out of 36 quarterbacks. With at least 10 such games. This season, Prescott has two 80.0-plus grades in three high-volume games so far, so there may be a change in Dallas. That said, from 2016 to 2019, the Dallas signal-caller fared better in games where he wasn’t asked to do as much, and he always separated him from other top quarterbacks around the league.
greatest weakness: Turnover-worthy plays
Pennant gets Jones in trouble for making big throws under pressure, as he has the third-highest percentage of league-turnover-worthy plays since the start of 2019, trailing only Jemis Winston and Kyle Allen. Jones is ready to take a downfield shot even when hit, and this leads to a wide range of great throws and easy interception opportunities. He should also be better at protecting the ball in the pocket, as he has a lot of fumbles yet – and not just the inevitable, strip-sack variety.
