Mississippi State Bulldogs in the NFL: Week 10 Report

Let’s get one thing absolutely straight here, it’s a great year to be a Mississippi State player in the NFL. Everyone is playing out of their minds right now, and the legend of Bulldogs in the NFL continues.

For instance, let’s take everyone’s favorite former Mississippi State Bulldog in the NFL right now. That would be the one and only Dak Prescott, who can now have the official title of “Starting Quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys,” instead of the interim moniker. In today’s press conference, Tony Romo officially announced the handing of the reins over to Dak. For a competitor like Tony Romo, that is a tough pill to swallow.

However, the Bulldogs made their presence known elsewhere in the NFL. Preston Smith made a game-sealing interception on the Vikings QB Sam Bradford. I mean, where else would would someone make an interception like that? Preston has NEVER done that before, right? Oh wait…he did.

But back to the rest of the players. K.J. Wright continues to be a dominating force up in Seattle, and Chris Jones continues to sack people. All in all, just a normal week in the NFL world for Mississippi State players.
