Prescott listed as questionable for Cowboys’ clash
Dak Prescott was expected to miss the Dallas Cowboys’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles, but has been listed as questionable.
The Dallas Cowboys have listed quarterback Dak Prescott as questionable for Sunday’s meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles. Prescott has not featured since Week 1 due to a thumb injury, and Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy told the press earlier this week that the 29-year-old was unlikely to be fit to return in Week 6. However, Dallas have not yet ruled their QB out of contention, instead listing Prescott as questionable for the game in Philadelphia.
Rush in line to start
Cooper Rush, though, is still expected to start, with the stand-in QB having led the Cowboys to four successive wins in Prescott’s absence. Rush is the third QB in NFL history, since statistics were first tracked in 1950, to win on his first five career starts while throwing no more than one interception over that span, after Kyle Allen and Patrick Mahomes.
The Cowboys head into the game with recent history on their side, having won their past three meetings with the Eagles by 20, 20 and 25 points. The last time any NFL team had four straight 20-point wins against an opponent was the Colts against the Jaguars from 2013-14.
Philadelphia are the NFL’s only unbeaten team, however, and are the first side in league history to win their opening five games of a season while averaging 400+ yards of offense and not losing a single fumble.
