As long as Prescott continues to play well, the Cowboys have every reason to be cautious with Romo's return from a fractured spine. The fourth-round pick from Mississippi State has outperformed just about every other quarterback in the league, including his opponent on Sunday, fellow hotshot rookie Carson Wentz.
Dallas is also coming off a bye in Week 7, while Wentz and the Eagles were busy beating the Minnesota Vikings 21-10 as 3-point home dogs (+100) on the closing line. That game saw Philadelphia CB Ron Brooks suffer a torn quadriceps tendon; he's been placed on injured reserve, leaving the Eagles considerably weaker in the slot and on special teams. The Cowboys, meanwhile, should have WR Dez Bryant back in action after he missed three games with a hairline fracture in his right knee.
NFL Odds: Prescott to Start for Cowboys Against Soaring EaglesDak Prescott is expected to start at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys (5-1 SU and ATS) this Sunday night when they host the Philadelphia Eagles (4-2 SU and ATS), beginning at 8:30 PM ET on NBC. Tony Romo did not practice on Monday following the Cowboys' bye week.
Despite Romo's lingering back injury, Dallas has opened as a 4.5-point chalk with a total of 43.5, thanks to the impressive work Prescott (82.8 QBR) has done in relief. The Cowboys will also be well-rested, while Philadelphia lost CB Ron Brooks to a torn quad in last week's win over Minnesota.
