FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dak Prescott says nothing has changed for him after Tony Romo’s heartfelt speech that conceded the Cowboys’ starting job to the rookie quarterback.

While Prescott frequently said Dallas was Romo’s team early in an eight-game winning streak that has tied a franchise season record, he isn’t calling it his team now.

The 23-year-old says Dallas is “our team.” Prescott will start Sunday against Baltimore, with Romo expected to be his backup for the first time.

Prescott said Wednesday his conversations with the Romo won’t change now that the 36-year-old has publicly thrown his support behind the fourth-round draft pick. Prescott told reporters Romo’s statement was “more for y’all than for me or for this team.”
