Breaking Dual EC DRBG is equivalent to breaking a single instance of ECDSA.
If the NSA had the capability to break ECDSA, then they would have generate the points in a 'nothing up my sleeves' way to avoid the perception they planted a backdoor.

So it is reasonable to assume that the NSA could not break ECDSA in 2005.
