Dak Prescott Leads Cowboys Comeback, Earns Another Start

For the first three quarters of their Week 8 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys fans might have been wondering how soon injured quarterback Tony Romo could get in uniform. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott was struggling, and it seemed a foregone conclusion that Romo would reclaim the starting job when healthy. But then came a 90-yard drive late in the fourth quarter in which Prescott went 5-for-8 for 78 yards and the game-tying touchdown to Dez Bryant. Then in overtime, Prescott was a perfect 5-for-5 and won the game on a touchdown pass to Jason Witten. After a season-opening loss to the New York Giants, Prescott has now won six starts in a row to put the Cowboys on top in the National Football Conference (NFC). With Romo still not ready to come back, Prescott will be making at least one more start. Given his strong play, it’s possible he could win the starting job for the rest of the season.
