Tom Brady is listed as “questionable” with a right elbow injury for the Sunday evening matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

The age of Brady is finally showing. The 42-year old quarterback has seen some struggles this season, despite the 9-1 record proving otherwise. Brady is currently eighth in passing yards this season with 2,752 yards, while his opponent on Sunday, Dak Prescott, is first in the league in passing yards with 3,221 yards.

Prescott is seeking a near $40 million dollar per year contract extension with the Cowboys. Entering this season, that number seemed roughly $15 million per year too high. Now entering week 12 of the season, Prescott is leading the NFL in passing yards and is tied for second in passing touchdowns. His MVP candidacy is legit, as his numbers are comparable to Russell Wilson and Lamar Jackson.

Brady, on the other hand, has shown to be one of the weak links of the Patriots success. The historically great defense has changed games for the Patriots and has put the low scoring offense in great scoring positions on the field. Brady hasn’t passed for over 300 yards in three games and has had a quarterback rating over 90 just once in the past five games.

Of course, the Patriots offense needs Brady to win and close games. The offense has legit concerns, with lack of playmakers putting too much pressure on Brady to create plays. The pressure has put Brady in tough situations, as he’s 19th in completion percentage this season and has five interceptions, all in the past seven games.

This could be a passing of the torch moment for Prescott. If he can outplay Brady with most of the NFL world watching, his MVP case and large contract could be taken seriously. If Brady is really banged up, the Patriots defense will need to hold this Cowboys offense under 20 points.
