Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott contribute to the Cowboys’ rout of the Eagles.
In the final game of Week 3, Dak Prescott threw three throwing touchdowns to lead the Dallas Cowboys to a 41-21 thrashing of the Philadelphia Eagles.
In a blowout NFC East victory Monday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Prescott completed 21 of 26 passes for 238 yards. The Cowboys (2-1) are now in first place in their division.
Prescott told reporters, “That was a lot of fun.” “I believe that demonstrated the brotherhood and culture we are cultivating among our teammates. That’s only a first step and a foundation for what we’re attempting to achieve.”
On 20 touches, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott accumulated 116 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns.
“It’s great to get 100 yards, but the win is everything,” Elliott said. “In our home opener, we won the division. It’s unbeatable.”
The Cowboys limited the Eagles to 64 running yards and won the time of possession battle by over 10 minutes. They had two interceptions of Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts.
On the game’s first possession, Elliott scored a one-yard touchdown to put the Cowboys up 7-0. Fletcher Cox recovered a fumble in the end zone five minutes into the first quarter, tying the score.
To seize control of the game, the Cowboys scored 20 unanswered points.
On the Cowboys’ final drive of the first quarter, Prescott connected with tight end Dalton Schultz for a 19-yard score.
On their next possession, the Cowboys pulled together a 13-play, 65-yard drive. Elliott finished the drive with a three-yard touchdown run. At halftime, the Cowboys were up 20-7.
On the third snap of the third quarter, Hurts threw an interception. Trevon Diggs, a rookie cornerback for the Cowboys, returned the interception 59 yards for a touchdown.
Hurts delivered a three-yard touchdown pass to tight end Zach Ertz three possessions later, cutting the Eagles’ deficit to 13 points. The Cowboys answered with touchdowns on back-to-back possessions to reclaim a 27-point lead.
With 11:26 left in the game, Prescott delivered a two-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Cedrick Wilson. On the next drive, he delivered a 22-yard touchdown throw to Schultz, extending the advantage to 41-14.
