Prescott Playing at Pro-Bowl Level

The total is holding steady since the open at 43.5, with the total set at 44.

As long as Prescott continues to play well, the Dallas Cowboys have every reason to be cautious with Romo’s return from a fractured spine. The fourth-round pick from Mississippi State has outperformed just about every other quarterback in the league. That includes his opponent on Sunday, fellow hotshot rookie Carson Wentz.
Dallas is also coming off a bye in Week 7. Carson Wentz and the Eagles were busy beating the Minnesota Vikings 21-10 as 3-point home dogs (+100) on the closing line. That game saw Philadelphia CB Ron Brooks suffer a torn quadriceps tendon. He has been placed on injured reserve, leaving the Eagles considerably weaker in the slot and on special teams. The Cowboys, meanwhile, should have WR Dez Bryant back in action after he missed three games with a hairline fracture in his right knee.
