Where: AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas
Kickoff: 4:25 p.m. EST
Get ready for talk of a rookie quarterback showdown on Oct. 30 between the sudden stars of the NFC East: Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz and the Cowboys’ Dak Prescott in Dallas.
There’s just a slight problem with the scenario for that prime-time game on Prescott’s new home field: It might be Tony Romo’s first game of the season coming off a back injury.
The Cowboys sure look like they’ll be in good hands until Romo returns – whenever that is – and Chicago might be wondering how long it can survive without Jay Cutler.
Prescott led scoring drives on all four Dallas possessions in the first half before throwing his first career touchdown pass in fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott’s first 100-yard game, and the Cowboys beat the Bears 31-17 on Sunday night to snap an eight-game home losing streak.
“When you see Dak perform at the level that he is performing and you project what his future might be, then you feel good about the future,” owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. “The other thing we feel good about is Romo is coming along, I would say, outstandingly.”
Wentz and Prescott are NFL record-setters as rookies, with the two highest numbers of passing attempts without an interception to start a career. Wentz, the No. 2 overall pick, is at 102 while leading the Eagles to a 3-0 start and Prescott is at 99.
With his second straight win, Prescott doubled the number of victories the Cowboys (2-1) had in 14 games without the injured Romo over three seasons before the fourth-round pick showed up.
But when Romo’s ready, Romo plays. He broke a bone in his back in the preseason, and Dallas’ first game against the division-leading Eagles is a likely return date.
“I’m three games into the National Football League. There is a lot that I can learn from,” said Prescott, who was 19 of 24 for 248 yards and had a rushing TD for the second straight week. “There’s a lot I haven’t seen, so I am going to continue to keep my head down and keep working.”
Things we learned in the first home victory for the Cowboys since last year’s opener, which was a week before the first of two broken left collarbones that kept Romo out of 12 games in a 4-12 season that included a 1-11 record without Romo
