The Dallas Cowboys didn’t have Dak Prescott in their first meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles back in Week 6 — and his return has made a major difference in the first half of the teams’ Week 16 rematch. Prescott has torched the Eagles defense, going 16 of 18 for 168 yards with a touchdown pass and an interception. Regardless, the Eagles jumped out to a 10-point lead and led 20-17 at halftime.
The interception is the lone blemish for Prescott, as Josh Sweat picked off Prescott’s first pass of the game and took it 42 yards for the touchdown to give Philadelphia an early 10-0 lead. Dallas responded with 14 unanswered points as Prescott gave the Cowboys the lead thanks to a 36-yard touchdown to CeeDee Lamb with 11:34 left in the second quarter. Lamb has eight catches for 103 yards and a score in the first half. Dallas has 211 yards against an Eagles defense that entered the game second in the NFL in yards allowed.
Gardner Minshew has a rushing touchdown in the game, but also threw an interception to Jayron Kearse that led to a Dallas touchdown. Minshew is 9 of 16 for 144 yards in the first half with a rushing touchdown. A.J. Brown has three catches for 64 yards.
