Over and over and over again, at critical moments, he came up with a big play, whether it was a third down, down in the red zone, again and again and again he just played winning football for us. He did the things that winning quarterbacks do.

If you guys remember, he has played with fractures in his back before.
Dak has done a nice job really at every turn starting back at training camp. I thought he did a particularly good job in this game against Seattle because he certainly didn't anticipate going in on the fourth play of the game.
