Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is having one of the best seasons of his eight-year NFL career. The Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night in a game Dallas needs to win to have a realistic shot at taking the NFC East and getting the top seed in the conference.
The Eagles held off a late Cowboys rally to win 28-23 at home in Week 9 to take a two-game lead in the division. Prescott completed 29 of 44 passes for 374 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions, but Dallas couldn’t finish off the last-minute drive after getting down to the Eagles’ six-yard line.
