He had some peculiar play calls, particularly when the Eagles failed to convert two second-and-1 opportunities and a first and 5. His 5-yard touchdown to Witten in overtime was the game-winner.
A victory by the Eagles (4-3) would have pulled them even in the standings.
But just as soon as everyone was ready to put Tony Romo back into the starting lineup, Prescott engineered a game-tying drive late in the fourth quarter and then the game-winning drive in overtime to beat the Eagles 29-23 in one of the most entertaining games of this National Football League season.
The Eagles went into halftime up 13-10 on Caleb Sturgis' 55-yard field goal as time expired.
The Eagles tried to rely on the running of Darren Sproles and the ability of Wentz to manage the nationally televised moment. He enjoyed it. "I'm looking forward to it", he said. The best players I've been around were able to do that.
The Cowboys out-gained the Eagles 212-158 in the first half. Wide Receiver Dez Bryant is active and will play for the Cowboys tonight.
In the end, Eagles fans can have the last laugh at Bayless. Romo may be the more talented quarterback right now, but Prescott has the team believing they can be successful with him under center. That's been helping the unbelievable success of Dak Prescott. Five plays later, Prescott wheeled out of a collapsing pocket, scrambled to his left and found Witten wide open in the end zone.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (11) throws a pass in the first half of an NFL football game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Oct. 30, 2016, in Arlington, Texas. Sproles had 86 yards rushing, 17 receiving and nine on returns. It's conceivable Romo would be healthy enough to play by mid-November but Prescott can't come off the field as long as he's winning.
The Texans have lost all of their road games, including a 27-9 loss to Denver on Monday, but they've had no such trouble in Houston where they're 5-0 this season. And each time, he's had huge games. He caught a 53-yard pass in the first quarter. "The disappointing part was the score-tying drive in regulation and obviously the overtime".
"I think that's what's so disappointing". "We've got a young team and just to lose like that in the fourth quarter when we had our opportunities".
UP - For most of the first half, Graham looked like the only Eagles defender who came to play. However, McKelvin had a good pass break-up in the red zone against Bryant on a fade near the end of the second quarter on the play before Hicks' interception. But this team bounced back every single time it was down, highlighted by overcoming a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter. That gave him 16 straight field goals after missing his first field-goal attempt of the season. Taylor Hart (ankle) was also inactive; he was questionable entering the weekend. That's because the Eagles de-activated Josh Andrews, Dillon Gordon and third-round pick Isaac Seumalo. He was out all last season after injuring a knee in training camp.
