Dallas Cowboys Come Back to Beat Eagles in Overtime
Even when Dak Prescott struggles, he can work his magic. The rookie Dallas Cowboys quarterback misfired on many of his throws early, including a costly interception late in the first half. Prescott shook off his early struggles and rallied Dallas back from 10 points down to force overtime against the rival Philadelphia Eagles. After winning the coin toss, Prescott marched the Cowboys down the field and threw the game winning touchdown pass to a wide open Jason Witten to cap off a memorable 29-23 comeback win.
Prescott finished the game 19-39 for 287 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also ran for a score. Fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott ran for 96 yards on 23 carries and also had 53 receiving yards for the Cowboys. Dez Bryant returned to action after missing the last three games and caught four passes for 113 yards and a touchdown.
Since losing to the New York Giants in week one, the Cowboys have won six straight and have a two game lead over Philadelphia and the New York Giants in the NFC East. Next up will be a road game against the winless Cleveland Browns next Sunday. Meanwhile, as Tony Romo continues to heal from his back injury, no return date has been given for the veteran quarterback.
