Coming into this game, the Dallas Cowboys were red hot. On a five game win streak, they would look to continue their dominance behind the rookie duo of QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliott. Though their opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles are doing pretty well behind their rookie QB Carson Wentz, they were looking to slow down the red hot Cowboys.
Early into the fourth quarter, the Cowboys were trailing 23-13. Two possession game. Eventually, they hopped on the horse and got going. Their defense did their job the whole fourth quarter by holding them to only a field goal. Dak was now feeling the pressure and after a field goal by Dan Bailey, nearly eight and a half minutes later Dak threw a twenty two yard touchdown pass to star wide receiver, Dez Bryant. Sending the game into overtime. Which they eventually went ahead and won on a five yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten from Dak Prescott. He has led this team to a 6-1 start and now everyone is questioning whether they leave the rookie in or start the veteran Tony Romo when he is healthy. All i know is, if winning is what they want, Dak obviously has what it takes to do that.Source
