DAK’S LEGEND GROWS AFTER ROOKIE SHOOT-OUT

In the biggest game of the Sunday night schedule, the Dallas Cowboys welcomed the Philadelphia Eagles in a battle for first in the NFC East.

But even more intriguing than that, it pitted the league’s top two rookies against each other in primetime. Most of the matchup seemed to sway toward Wentz, with the Philly D bottling up Dak most of the night.

The fourth quarter belonged to Dak and the Cowboys, however, storming back to tie the game and force overtime.

And it was there where the burgeoning Dak Prescott legend sprouted wings, as he found Jason Witten alone in the endzone to send Philly packing and grow their division lead to 2.5 games.

The win gives Dallas a six-game winning streak and sole position atop the NFC East. It wasn’t pretty, with Dak having a pretty bad game through the air, but he got it done.

And with a brutal stretch coming for Dallas after Cleveland that includes road trips to New York, Minnesota, and Pittsburgh, they’ll take what they can get.
