ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dak Prescott won the rookie quarterback duel with Carson Wentz.

Prescott rallied Dallas in the fourth quarter and threw a 5-yard pass to Jason Witten in overtime to give the Cowboys a 29-23 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.

Prescott won his sixth straight game filling in for Tony Romo, the 10-year starter who is getting close to returning from a preseason back injury. And the 23-year-old recovered from a shaky start that included several poor throws, the worst an end zone interception to Jordan Hicks that cost Dallas points late in the first half.

Dez Bryant caught a tying 22-yard touchdown pass with 3:04 left in regulation as Dallas (6-1) overcame a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to take a two-game lead over the cheap jerseys Eagles (4-3) in the NFC East.

Prescott finished 19 of 39 for 287 yards with two scores and the interception.

"He's come back before this year for us," coach Jason Garrett said, referring to a fourth-quarter rally in Washington and a comeback from a 14-0 deficit at San Francisco.

"He plays with the same mentality, the same demeanor, the same temperament regardless of what's happened before. The best players I've been around were able to do that. wholesale NFL jerseys He was outstanding at the end of this ballgame."

Wentz had the Eagles in position for a win with another efficient performance, going 32 of 43 for 202 yards. But he couldn't move Philadelphia late in regulation with the game tied. The Eagles never got the ball in overtime after Prescott led the 75-yard scoring drive.

"It's just those late-game learning situations," Wentz said. "We've got a young team and just to lose like that in the fourth quarter when we had our cheap NFL jerseys opportunities. We've just to learn and put them away if we can."

On the winning play , Prescott started to his right before spinning back to his left and finding a wide-open Witten, who broke Ed "Too Tall" Jones' franchise record with his 204th start.

"A lot went through my mind," Prescott said. "Like, this is my first touchdown throw to Witten. This is the game-winner. Let's get it to him. A special moment."

Bryant had four catches for 113 yards, including a 53-yarder to set up the first Dallas touchdown, wholesale jerseys in the 2014 All-Pro's return after missing three games with a hairline fracture in his right knee.

Ezekiel Elliott's NFL rookie record of four straight games with at least 130 yards rushing end, but the NFL's rushing leader played a big part on the winning drive with 18 yards rushing and a 10-yard catch that set up Witten's score. He finished with 96 yards on 22 carries and had another 52 yards receiving.

Elliott Tampa Bay Buccaneers jerseys also had two highlight plays in the first quarter on safety Rodney McLeod — first running through him on a 25-yard catch and hurdling over him on a 13-yard run during a drive to a field goal for a 10-3 lead.

Prescott's TD pass to Witten tied Troy Aikman's rookie franchise record of nine scoring passes after Wentz broke Donovan McNabb's rookie mark of eight from 1999 with his ninth of the season, a 5-yarder to Jordan Matthews that put Philadelphia up 20-10 in the third quarter.

Darren Sproles had a season-high 86 yards rushing on 15 carries for the Eagles. Matthews had 11 catches for 65 yards.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Caleb Sturgis' 55-yard field goal on the final play of the first half for a 13-10 Philadelphia lead came after officials put a second back on the clock following Wentz's quick sideline completion to Dorial Green-Beckham. The play started with five seconds left, and replays showed officials made the right call.

Sturgis had to make the kick twice after the Cowboys called timeout just before the first successful attempt. It was Sturgis' 16th straight make following a miss on his first attempt of the season. He got his 17th straight later — a 34-yarder in the fourth quarter.

The Minnesota Vikings began preparations for the Philadelphia Eagles with T.J. Clemmings and Jeremiah Sirles still installed as their starting offensive tackles. But as Jake Long gets to work in his first padded practices since last season, coach Mike Zimmer wholesale jerseys is aware the former first overall pick could change the team's thinking.

"I haven’t seen him in pads yet. So expectations can cheap NFL jerseys change quickly one way or another,” Zimmer cheap jerseys said Wednesday morning. “I’m trying to go by what I see and go from there.”

It was the first time Diggs had practiced since before the Vikings' Week 4 win over the New York Giants, and his return (albeit in a limited fashion) on Wednesday would suggest he's got a good chance to play on Sunday. Wide receiver Jarius Wright, who also didn't practice on Monday, returned from an ankle injury to be a limited participant on Wednesday. First-round pick Laquon Treadwell was also limited with a thumb injury.

The Vikings signed Long to a one-year deal worth $623,000 (with a $453,000 injury split) after two knee surgeries limited him to 11 games the last two seasons. Dr. James Andrews endorsed Long's recovery in a note to all 32 teams this offseason, and Long said again on Wednesday he feels ready to return to game action.

"The mental side I’m fine with,” he said “The physical side is getting back into it and knocking some rust off. Luckily, we wholesale NFL jerseys had the bye week, so I got to get out there and run around a little bit and practice Monday (after the bye). I’m really just getting back into it, but I feel good so far. Whenever my number is called, I'm going to be ready to go.”

With Andre Smith and Matt Kalil on injured reserve, the Vikings have precious little depth at tackle. Another subpar game for Clemmings could put Long in action relatively soon.

The Vikings remained without tight end MyCole Pruitt (knee/ankle) and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd Carolina Panthers jerseys (knee). Tackle Jeremiah Sirles (knee) was also limited, while guard Brandon Fusco (concussion), guard Alex Boone (knee) and linebacker Anthony Barr (ankle) were full participants.

Asked what he needs to show to get on the field, Long said, "Just go out there and play like I know I can, move around well and just be a team player. I felt good the last couple days. Today will be a big test with pads on, but I feel good so far."

He also sheds light on the good work that had done by Mike Nolan, the department has not exactly kept his promises, despite some flashes of talent. Melvin Ingram closed the season with 52nd tackle, 28th pressures and 10.5 tackle, 7.5 to which however came from their last five matches, as the DC John Pagano now the season was plenty going south and despite this, has shown creativity in blitz who before he had never seen, and is automatically wonder why. Ingram has a good technique, especially with the spin move that has now become his trademark, but it is still quite uneven; Of course, the fact that he finished the season on a high bodes well, but, as mentioned above for Liuget, probably would be better if there were a higher level rusher capable of taking all the attention, distogliendole from him (in addition to the physical problems that, at least, let you free in this vintage). 42 tackles, 31 pressures Wholesale nfl jerseys (team leader) and 6 sack for Jerry Attaochu, the OLB in the second year that showed great improvement from season to season. The potential is still very raw, but his explosiveness on the snap you can not teach, and then there is hope that even more refined technique, the boy can evolve into an even better player. The development of Ingram and Attaochu, but also Te'o and Perryman, will be headed by Bob Babich, the new LB coach who replaced Nolan, who has resigned, probably, to accept an assignment from the defense coordinator in some other team. Babich has spent the last three seasons in Jacksonville, slowly improving a defense that, despite being left at the bottom of the League, has little point guard, while in the previous nine years he worked in Chicago with two large role as Lance Briggs wholesale nfl jerseys and Brian Urlacher. Regarding Kyle Emanuel, the rookie is another progettone, is primarily used in special teams, which, however, unlike Attaochu, has excellent basic technique, but has physical gaps: utopian, perhaps, that can develop in a 3 LB-down, while the development in occasional rusher is a goal.

As mentioned before, the growth of the defense of San Diego is concise with the entry into Wholesale New York Giants Jerseys the lineup Denzel Perryman, after two months in the infirmary and special teams. The former University of Miami has equipped the Chargers a run stopper as it had for years, probably by Jamal Williams times, limiting the missed tackle by Te'o - which however has improved towards the end of the season from this point of view - and raising the general performance of the defense. Fortunately, the rise of Perryman has stopped the descent Donald Butler, by far our worst defender in relation to the contract (if he plays it with Flowers, but cheap nfl jerseys at least the former Chiefs has a past - recently - as a player over the media, which Butler has never been). The 24 tackles are career low for Butler, but still has 11 million salary guaranteed for one year, and then until the next season will not move. It is surprising that the coaching staff has insisted with him instead of trying, for example with Kavell Conner, New York Giants Jerseys excellent special teamer and good tackle. As for the coverage, I continue my personal campaign in favor of Manti Te'o, which will never be a Pro Bowler, but it has very good reading of the game in this area, besides being improved as a tackler (second best tackler in team tackle efficiency, 6). Department that must be completed by adding an edge rusher, but there is the young talent to work with. RATING: 6.5
