PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Dak Prescott is stealing Carson Wentz’s thunder.
Wentz has been nearly perfect in his first four NFL games: seven touchdown passes, over 1,000 passing yards, 67.4 completion percentage, a 103.5 QB rating, three wins, and just one interception. In September, Wentz became the first Eagles rookie to ever win offensive rookie of the month.
Amazingly, Prescott has been even closer to perfect.
A fourth-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in this year’s draft, Prescott has overtaken Wentz as the talk of the NFL. Prescott has led his team to a 4-1 record throwing for 1,239 yards, four touchdowns, and still no interceptions. He’s also ran for three scores.
Prescott has been rewarded with the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Not surprisingly, on Tuesday’s 94WIP Morning Show Twitter poll question, 90-plus percent of Eagles fans said they would take Wentz over Prescott.
With Tony Romo expected to return at some point this season, the question remains if the Cowboys will be forced to bench their rookie star. Wentz and the Eagles play at the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football on Halloween eve.
