The Dallas Cowboys didn’t have Dak Prescott in his first meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6 — and his return made all the difference in the first half of the team’s Week 16 game. Prescott set the Eagles defense on fire, 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 took a 20-17 halftime lead.
The interception is Prescott’s only blemish, as Josh Soot picked off Prescott’s first pass of the game and took it 42 yards for a 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 run to CeeDee Lamb with 11:34 left in the second quarter. Lamb caught eight 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 he also threw an interception to Jayron Kearse that resulted in a Dallas touchdown. Minshew is 9 of 16 for 144 yards in the first half with a rushing touchdown. AJ Brown has three catches for 64 yards.
