The honeymoon is over for rookie sensations Prescott and Wentz

Prescott's legs, in addition to his durability, also give Dallas more options as it continues to diversify the NFL's best run game.

"I think that's big in that he's just trying to be healthy and be the best teammate he can be during the time being", center Travis Frederick said.

Wentz has led the Eagles to a 4-2 start. After winning their first three games of the season, the Eagles dropped two in a row.

The Cowboys, 5-1 with a five-game winning streak, are third in the National Football League in rushing offense.

"[Romo's] been working hard in the weight room", Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence told the Dallas Morning News' Jon Matchoa. Prescott has helped the Cowboys win five of their first six games. One thing to consider doing in this game is to bet the moneyline on the Cowboys. Ezekiel Elliott had a 4th straight monster performance, logging 157 yards on 28 carries, his highest yardage output in any game this season as he is making a strong case for rookie of the year through 6 games. This will be the first time in 110 meetings that the Eagles and Cowboys are both starting rookie quarterbacks.

The Eagles, who allowed the lightly regarded Redskins running back to ramble for a career-high 135 rushing yards on just 16 carries two weeks ago, now have to contend with the National Football League rushing leader. But Dallas' 10-year starter has been ruled out for the game despite practicing on a limited basis and for the first time since his fourth back injury in less than four years. Prescott is 125 of 182 for 1,486 yards, 8.16 yards per attempt and seven TDs against just one interception. Dallas is scoring 26.5 points per game on offense, and the defense is allowing 17.8 per game.

All indications seem to be pointing towards either his earliest possible return date coming against the Cleveland Browns a week from this Sunday, or probably more likely, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in two weeks.

The Philadelphia Eagles were the talk of the town before the season started.

They've pretty much said that every week, though, except maybe last week when all the talk was about getting after Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford.

"I think when we look back on the film from the last few weeks, there are a few plays - just a little something here or maybe we missed something here", Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said. "They like to push, they like to grab a hold of you and just move you and bleed you for five or 10 yards, so it's going to be on us to stay stout at the point of attack". The top target for Carson Wentz this season has been Jordan Matthews, with 25 receptions, 354 yards and 2 touchdowns.
