Dak Prescott's message

In the gridiron on Sunday, it wasn't all about the plays during the game between the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott's wrist tape is garnering attention. He wrote "Ask 4 Help" on it, to let others know they're not alone in their struggles.
