Cowboys beat Eagles thanks to lessons from Jaguars loss

Less than an hour after stepping out of the ring, still wearing the three-hour marks of a heavyweight, Dak Prescott had every right to take with him to the podium all the criticism leveled at him over the previous five days.

Instead, he went the other way.

“Let’s start with the interception,” Prescott told the assembled media room.

The 29-year-old quarterback then explained that he underestimated the length of Eagles edge rusher Josh Sweat, who hit Prescott’s pitch from close range and ran 42 yards to call. This happened less than six minutes into the game and put the Eagles up 10-0. It came on the heels of a 68-yard, seven-play field goal that Philadelphia reserve QB Gardner Minshew engineered to start the game.
