Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott got the start in Philadelphia on Sunday, but Tony Romo gave the Cowboys their first touchdown of the game in the second quarter.
With a resting Ezekiel Elliott watching from the sideline, Prescott played the first two series of the game — which resulted in a punt and a field goal — before Romo returned to the field for the first time since Week 3 of the preseason.

Romo faced a third-and-11 just two plays into his comeback and fired a perfect 16-yard pass to Terrance Williams. A few plays later, Romo took a shot to the end zone, and Dez Bryant drew a pass interference flag that brought the Cowboys to the 3-yard line.
Romo then went back to Williams and hit him for his first regular-season touchdown pass since November 2015.
When the Cowboys got the ball again, third-stringer Mark Sanchez was on the field. Apparently, Romo needed just one series to show he’ll be ready for the playoffs if called upon.
