Ben DiNucci’s Professional Career

As a redshirt freshman, he served as Nathan Peterman’s backup quarterback. In 2016, he made his debut in the last offensive series against “Duke University.” He also came in late in the third quarter of that year to fill in for an injured Peterman. He completed 3 of 9 passes for 16 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions, and two carries for 18 yards in a 24-31 loss against Northwestern University. After senior Max Browne suffered a season-ending right shoulder injury, he was named the starter before the seventh game of his sophomore season against North Carolina State University.

He was also named to the CAA’s third team. Against Elon University, Ben threw for 316 yards and a touchdown. Against the University of Rhode Island, he set a career-high with four touchdown passes.

Professional Career

When it became evident that Ben DiNucci was considering signing with either the Cleveland Browns or the Chicago Bears, he was selected in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. DiNucci made his NFL debut against the Arizona Cardinals on October 19, 2020, in relief of Andy Dalton. He entered the game against the Washington Football Team on October 25, 2020, after Dalton was forced to leave due to an injury. DiNucci completed his first pass to Amari Cooper for 32 yards. The Cowboys were defeated 25–3.

Due to Dalton’s concussion protocol, the Cowboys announced on October 31, 2020, that DiNucci will start for the first time in his career on Sunday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles. DiNucci completed 21 of 40 passes for 180 yards, lost two fumbles, and was sacked four times as the Cowboys fell 23-9 and for the fourth time in franchise history failed to score a touchdown in back-to-back games. It also squandered a strong defensive showing by the Cowboys, who forced four Eagles turnovers. Garrett Gilbert passed DiNucci on the depth chart for the backup spot in the following games.
