Huge NFL crowd for Cowboys' home win

·1-min read

Dak Prescott has thrown for three touchdowns, in his first NFL home game since he suffered an ankle injury on the same field almost a year ago, as Dallas Cowboys dominated the Philadelphia Eagles 41-21 on Monday night.

Ezekiel Elliott ran for a season-high 95 yards and two touchdowns, Trevon Diggs returned an interception 59 yards for a score and tight end Dalton Schultz had the first two-TD game of his career.

Except for a fumble in the end zone that gave the Eagles (1-2) their first touchdown, Prescott was efficient, going 21 of 26 for 238 yards without an interception in the first NFC East game for both teams.

Prescott's first game at AT&T Stadium since the season-ending compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle in Week 5 last year was also the return to full capacity, with 93,267 fans in attendance and the retractable roof open.

"Just thankful for everything that I've been through, all of the hard work that made me account for just to be back out here doing what I love," Prescott said.

"It's the greatest place to play football."

The Cowboys displayed they meant business as Elliott capped a game-opening six-play, 75-yard drive with a 1-yard scoring run.

Dallas (2-1) had a 19-1 edge in first downs late in the first half, but led only 20-7 at the break.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was 25-of-39 passing for 326 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions - one of which was was returned by Diggs on the third play of the second half.
