SANTA CLARA, Calif. — What’s the best way to answer after having thrown an interception? Go on a 14-play touchdown drive.
Prescott went without an interception in the Cowboys’ wild-card win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but his fourth pass of the game against San Francisco was picked off. Remember, Prescott tied for the NFL regular-season lead in interceptions with 15, despite starting just 12 games.
4️⃣ + 8️⃣6️⃣ = TD! 🙌

But the Brett Maher curse remained, with the kicker missing his fifth extra point of the postseason when it was blocked, so the Cowboys lead was just 6-3.
For Schultz, it was his third touchdown catch in the past six days. He had two against the Buccaneers, and Schultz is now tied for the franchise lead for most touchdown catches in a postseason.
Terrance Williams (2014), Michael Irvin (1995), Drew Pearson (1980) and Preston Pearson (1975) also had three, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.
