ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dak Prescott won the rookie quarterback duel with Carson Wentz.Prescott rallied Dallas in the fourth quarter and threw a 5-yard pass to Jason Witten in overtime to give the Cowboys a 29-23 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.Prescott won his sixth straight game filling in for Tony Romo, the 10-year starter who is getting close to returning from a preseason back injury. And the 23-year-old recovered from a shaky start that included several poor throws, the worst an end zone interception to Jordan Hicks that cost Dallas points late in the first half.Dez Bryant caught a tying 22-yard touchdown pass with 3:04 left in regulation as Dallas (6-1) overcame a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to take a two-game lead over the Eagles (4-3) in the NFC East.Prescott finished 19 of 39 for 287 yards with two scores and the interception.Hes come back before this year for us, coach Jason Garrett said, referring to a fourth-quarter rally in Washington and a comeback from a 14-0 deficit at San Francisco.He plays with the same mentality, the same demeanor, the same temperament regardless of whats happened before. The best players Ive been around were able to do that. He was outstanding at the end of this ballgame.Wentz had the Eagles in position for a win with another efficient performance, going 32 of 43 for 202 yards. But he couldnt move Philadelphia late in regulation with the game tied. The Eagles never got the ball in overtime after Prescott led the 75-yard scoring drive.Its just those late-game learning situations, Wentz said. Weve got a young team and just to lose like that in the fourth quarter when we had our opportunities. Weve just to learn and put them away if we can.On the winning play , Prescott started to his right before spinning back to his left and finding a wide-open Witten, who broke Ed Too Tall Jones franchise record with his 204th start.A lot went through my mind, Prescott said. Like, this is my first touchdown throw to Witten. This is the game-winner. Lets get it to him. A special moment.Bryant had four catches for 113 yards, including a 53-yarder to set up the first Dallas touchdown, in the 2014 All-Pros return after missing three games with a hairline fracture in his right knee.Ezekiel Elliotts NFL rookie record of four straight games with at least 130 yards rushing end, but the NFLs rushing leader played a big part on the winning drive with 18 yards rushing and a 10-yard catch that set up Wittens score. He finished with 96 yards on 22 carries and had another 52 yards receiving.Elliott also had two highlight plays in the first quarter on safety Rodney McLeod -- first running through him on a 25-yard catch and hurdling over him on a 13-yard run during a drive to a field goal for a 10-3 lead.Prescotts TD pass to Witten tied Troy Aikmans rookie franchise record of nine scoring passes after Wentz broke Donovan McNabbs rookie mark of eight from 1999 with his ninth of the season, a 5-yarder to Jordan Matthews that put Philadelphia up 20-10 in the third quarter.Darren Sproles had a season-high 86 yards rushing on 15 carries for the Eagles. Matthews had 11 catches for 65 yards.ON SECOND THOUGHT: Caleb Sturgis 55-yard field goal on the final play of the first half for a 13-10 Philadelphia lead came after officials put a second back on the clock following Wentzs quick sideline completion to Dorial Green-Beckham. The play started with five seconds left, and replays showed officials made the right call.Sturgis had to make the kick twice after the Cowboys called timeout just before the first successful attempt. It was Sturgis 16th straight make following a miss on his first attempt of the season. He got his 17th straight later -- a 34-yarder in the fourth quarter.GAMBLING GARRETT: The Dallas coach with a conservative reputation went for it on fourth-and-1 in overtime when the Cowboys were in field goal range. Prescott got the first on a sneak. Garrett also gave the go-ahead for a fake punt that led to a 30-yard run by punter Chris Jones and a field goal to get the Cowboys within seven in the third quarter.INJURIES: Eagles OL Allen Barbre left in the first half with a hamstring injury and didnt return. ... Cowboys S Barry Church left with an arm injury in the second half and didnt return. ...

NEW YORK -- Before Alain Vigneault signed on for the job he said he couldnt turn down, the New York Rangers new coach got two important thumbs-up that led him to the Big Apple. Vigneaults hockey coaching jobs over the past decade have taken him far away from his home in Gatineau, Quebec, and separated the divorced father from his two daughters for far too long. When the recently fired coach of the Vancouver Canucks was faced with the decision of continuing his career with the Dallas Stars or the Rangers, he chose the place that is just a one-hour flight from his family. "I was thinking about the opportunity to coach the New York Rangers, one of the Original Six teams, in this great city," he said Friday at his introductory news conference. "There is not a chance I could pass that up." Vigneault was given a five-year contract about a month after he was dismissed by the Canucks and three weeks after New York fired combustible coach John Tortorella. Vigneault visited his daughters in Montreal and got a clear message from them where they wanted him to go. When he went into the apartment of his 20-year-old daughter, Janie, at college, he saw two mugs on the table -- one with a Rangers logo and the other with a Dallas Stars insignia. Then he received a much clearer signal. "They were sitting on the couch, and they both had Yankee hats on," Vigneault said. "So I said, I know where you want me to go. Ill see what I can do." Visits that had been limited to Christmas and maybe another time during the season can now increase to multiple times per month. "They both like to shop," he said. Vigneault let the Stars know he was taking himself out of the running to be their bench boss and worked out a deal with the Rangers -- one that will reportedly pay him $2 million per season. "I want to win," Vigneault said. "I did find out that it is a lot easier to negotiate yourself a contract when youve got two teams that are after you than just one." With that, he gave Glen Sather, the Rangers president and general manager a hearty pat on the back as those in the room broke out in laughter. "I didnt particularly enjoy that part," Sather said with a smile. Although he has yet to win the Stanley Cup, Vigneault brings a wealth of experience and success into his third NHL head coaching job. His most appealing attribute might be that he is so different than Tortorella -- on and off the ice. That was evident Friday when Vigneault was introduced at Radio City Music Hall. In the short window of time in which he met with media members, Vigneault smiled and joked more times than anyone could remember his predecessor doing in 4 1/2 seasons. The 52-year-old Vigneault brings a welcoming demeanour away from the rink and a more offensive philosophy on it -- in contrast with Tortorellas way of working in the defensive zone and putting a premium on blocking shots in front of star goalie Henrik Lundqvist. "We needed a change in style," Sather said. "You look at the injuries ... we needed to move the puck out quick. That style was peerfect for a couple of years, but it started to wear our team out.dddddddddddd" Vigneault edged out former Rangers captain Mark Messier, longtime former Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff and others. In 11 seasons as an NHL head coach with Montreal and Vancouver, Vigneault is 422-288-35-61 in 806 games. "Im going into this with an open mind," Vigneault said. "I think (players) should be too. Im going in with a clean slate. Lets see what we can write on that slate." Vigneault was interviewed last week during the Rangers organizational meetings in California and then met with team owner James Dolan in New York. "We had a list of 13 candidates and I narrowed it down to nine," Sather said. "It wasnt just between A.V. and Mark." Vigneault and Sather will now work on filling out the coaching staff. It is unknown if Messier, a special assistant to Sather, will remain with the Rangers. Messier, a Hall of Fame player, lacks the coaching experience Vigneault is loaded with. "It was a difficult decision. Weve both grown up with each other," Sather said of passing on Messier. "At this stage, A.V. was the man. Mark has got to decide what he wants to do." Tortorella was fired May 29 -- four days after the Rangers were eliminated by Boston. A year ago, the Rangers reached the Eastern Conference finals. In an odd twist, Tortorella was reportedly offered the job on Friday to replace Vigneault in Vancouver. Sather insisted that no player came to him and asked for Tortorella to be fired. No players were in attendance Friday. "There hasnt been a player who ... complained to me about Torts," Sather said. When asked if Tortorella was stubborn in resisting adopting a more offensive style, Sather had a quick answer. "Maybe beyond stubborn," he said. "He was perfect for us for a few years. Hes going to be perfect for another team, but it was getting to be so hard on some of our players. "We needed to make a change to give them a little fresh life and more of an optimistic view of how to play." Vigneault ranked first on the Canucks list in coaching wins and came within one victory of capturing the Stanley Cup in 2011. In seven seasons, Vigneault was 313-170-57 in the regular season but only 33-32 in the playoffs. In his final two seasons, Vancouver was knocked out in the first round -- including a sweep by San Jose last month. The early-round exits when the Canucks were the higher-seeded team, and losses at home at the starts of the series, were cited by general manager Mike Gillis as reasons for Vigneaults firing on May 22. "There is no doubt in my mind that this organization is committed to winning the Stanley Cup," Vigneault said of the Rangers. Messier captained the Rangers past the Canucks in the 1994 Stanley Cup finals. Vancouver lost another Game 7 in the finals against Boston in 2011. "I saw some of the pictures from the last time this city won the Cup," Vigneault said. "Its real clear to me that there is no better place to win the Stanley Cup than here in New York."
