Prescott not letting it rip

Cooper’s first impression
In his Week 9 debut, Amari Cooper was targeted eight times and hauled in five receptions for 58 yards and an early touchdown. Overall, Cooper generated an 84.4 passer rating when targeted in his Cowboys’ debut.
More weight on Vander Esch’s shoulders
Another injury to veteran linebacker Sean Lee has put more pressure on rookie Leighton Vander Esch. Vander Esch has been a bright spot for the Cowboys’ defense and ranks fifth among rookie defenders with an overall grade of 82.1.
Jones’ blanket coverage on the outside
Byron Jones has been a shutdown corner this season for the Cowboys. Jones is allowing an average of 0.58 yards per coverage snap, fourth-best at the position.
Wentz as accurate as they come
Carson Wentz has been one of the most accurate passers in the NFL this season. His 80.1 adjusted completion percentage ranks fourth among quarterbacks going into Week 10.
Golden Tate’s debut
Golden Tate is set to make his Eagles’ debut this week. Since being drafted in 2010, Tate has forced 172 missed tackles. That is 63 more than any other wide receiver in that span.
Ertz eating up targets
Tight end Zach Ertz has been a target monster this season. He leads all tight ends with 72 targets, and his 10.3 targets per game is fifth overall among pass catchers and almost three more targets per game than the next closest tight end.
Eagles’ defense no need to blitz
The Eagles’ have one of the lowest blitz rates in the NFL and for good reason. On passing plays where the Eagles don’t blitz, they’ve generated pressure on the quarterback at a rate of 41.0% – the highest in the league.
