Dak Prescott did it again for the Dallas Cowboys. After coming up in the clutch with a fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Dez Bryant to tie the score, Prescott connected with Jason Witten on a 5-yard pass in overtime to cap the Cowboys’ 29-23 comeback win over the Eagles on Sunday.
Prescott capped a 12-play, 75-yard drive with his throw to Witten, who hauled in his first touchdown of the season. Prescott bought time in the pocket, eluding some pressure up front, then rolled out to his left and found Witten wide open in the end zone.
