Dak Prescott threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten in overtime, giving the Dallas Cowboys their sixth straight win with a 29-23 victory over the visiting Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.

Prescott rallied the Cowboys with a late touchdown pass to Dez Bryant to tie the score, and he won a quarterback duel with a fellow rookie, Carson Wentz. Dallas (6-1) took a two-game division lead after rallying from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

Prescott, 23, recovered from a shaky start, finishing 19 of 39 for 287 yards with two scores and an end zone interception that cost the Cowboys points late in the first half.

Wentz had the Eagles (4-3) in position for a win with another efficient performance, but he could not move Philadelphia late in regulation with the game tied.
