It’ll be Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott’s first game back at AT&T Stadium since the gruesome ankle injury last October against the Giants, and it’ll be Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts’ second chance to beat the Cowboys in his home state.
And maybe it’ll be Micah Parsons playing “The Terminator” on Hurts.
“Every quarterback (on the schedule) is on the ‘hit list,” said the rookie Parsons, who recorded his first NFL sack in Week 2 in a win over the Chargers. “I want all of them. (Justin) Herbert was just the guy I had that week. But Hurts, he’s on the hit list now too.
“You got to look at it like you’re trying to be the Terminator out there.”

The Cowboys have lost defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, who will most likely miss games until November with a broken foot, as well as defensive tackle Carlos Watkins with a knee, and defensive end Dorance Armstrong to a high ankle sprain. The Cowboys, however, get back a big part of that defensive line in Randy Gregory, who has been cleared from the COVID-19 list.
Look for this one to come down to Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons vs Hurts, as the Eagles will most likely try and pound the ball and establish the run game early, rather than depend on Hurts’ arm to win the game. Prediction? Let’s discuss!
