Dak Prescott finds CeeDee Lamb for TD to cap 75-yard drive

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys could not have made a better statement against the Philadelphia Eagles than they did on their first drive Sunday night.

Ten plays, 75 yards, 5 minutes and a Dak Prescott-to-CeeDee Lamb touchdown pass to take a 7-0 lead.

It was perfectly balanced with five runs, including a 22-yard reverse by wide receiver KaVontae Turpin to convert one third down and a Prescott sneak — no tush push needed — on another. Prescott missed just one pass on the drive, but ended it with his 27th touchdown throw of the season by doing what has become commonplace — buying time with his feet.

Spinning out of the pocket, Prescott was able to lead Lamb on third and 2 into the end zone for another third-down conversion. It’s just the third time the Cowboys have scored a touchdown on their first possession of the game this season.

And Lamb was able to match another No. 88 in franchise history with a touchdown grab in his fifth straight game. The last Cowboy to do that was Dez Bryant in 2013.
