The Dallas Cowboys (4-1) have won the last 4 straight games–most recently a 22-10 victory over the LA Rams last Sunday afternoon–since starting QB Dak Prescott suffered a fractured right thumb in Week 1. Fifth-year QB Cooper Rush, who has filled in during Prescott’s absence, has stepped up to lead the Cowboys’ offense throwing for 4 touchdowns with zero turnovers. Rush, who won his first career start last season against the Minnesota Vikings, is just the 13th quarterback in the Super Bowl era to start their career 5-0. Additionally, he is the first quarterback in franchise history to start his career with 5 straight wins.
While this situation appears uncannily familiar to 2016, when Prescott climbed up the depth chart as a rookie after Tony Romo’s back injury and held onto the starting QB job leading Dallas to a 13-3 record and an NFC East title, team owner Jerry Jones has assured fans that Prescott is still the number one guy.
Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles (5-0) remain undefeated after last Sunday’s 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Hurts, who is in his second full season as the Eagles starting QB has 10 total touchdowns on the season – 6 of which are rushing touchdowns. The 2020 2nd-round NFL Draft pick currently ranks 5th in the league in completion percentage (67.9) after finishing 26th in completion percentage last year (61.3) and leads all quarterbacks in carries with 68 carries for 266 rush yards this season.
This season marks the 3rd time in franchise history the Eagles have started 5-0 (1981 and 2004). Last year, the team finished 9-8 and lost to Tampa Bay in the Wild Card.
Sunday night’s game marks the first time in 30 years (since Oct. 5, 1992) that Dallas and Philadelphia will meet within the first six weeks of a season with each team having at least three wins.
