Dak Prescott finally threw his first NFL interception, but not before breaking Tom Brady's record for most attempts to start a career without a pick—and not in a Dallas Cowboys loss.

On his ninth pass of Dallas' Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers, the rookie quarterback broke the New England Patriots star's record of 162 passes without a pick to start a career, with a 15-yard completion to Terrence Williams.

With his team up two scores at the close of the third quarter, Prescott finally threw his first pick after six weeks as a rookie starter, ending his streak at 176.

The fourth-round pick was efficient in his team's 30-16 drubbing of the Packers, who entered the weekend 3-1. Prescott completed 18-of-27 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns.

Of course, it's a lot easier to be efficient with running back Ezekiel Elliott, also a rookie, running wild over what's been a historically great defense against the run. Elliott rushed for 154 yards on 27 carries, and caught two passes for another 17.

The Cowboys are 5-1 to start the season, and last we heard, owner and general manager Jerry Jones plans to go back to Tony Romo whenever he returns.
