Dak Prescott Drops Dime to Dez Bryant to Tie Eagles Late (Video)
Dak Prescott threw a beautiful pass to Dez Bryant, who made a masterful catch, to bring the Dallas Cowboys even with the Philadelphia Eagles late.
As great as Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has been in 2016, the signal-caller struggled for most of the night in their Week 8 Sunday Night Football matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, the youngster still did enough to keep Dallas in a position where they weren’t too far behind. Then, when the game was essentially hanging in the balance, the Dak-Attack struck once again—with the help of a now-returned Dez Bryant.
Prescott had been hurrying many of his throws throughout the night and had struggled with his accuracy. When the Cowboys got the ball late in the fourth quarter, though, all his worries seemed to go away. He was finding everyone in the receiving core with ease. Down near the goal line, though, there was only one person to look for.
After almost throwing an interception on a broken play, Prescott had new life and took advantage. He looked the way of Dez Bryant and fired an absolute dime in his direction. Bryant then rose up and beasted Nolan Carroll with an adjustment for six points:

After hauling that in and following Dan Bailey converting the extra point, the Cowboys tied it up with the Eagles late in the fourth quarter.
That’s just a huge play all around. Not only is it the first Dez Bryant touchdown since Week 3 as he’s been out with injury, but that’s a massive drive for a rookie in a major primetime divisional matchup. This Prescott guy might have a future, in case you hadn’t heard.
