Three men caught the five touchdowns. Two men combined to receive four touchdowns.

Prescott first hit Cedrick Wilson for a 14-yard touchdown reception. The two connected again in the second quarter on a 24-yard touchdown reception.

The signal-caller connected with Dalton Schultz twice in the second quarter. Their first touchdown was for two yards.

Their second connection was for a nine-yard touchdown.

The final touchdown came to Corey Clement. The South Jersey native, who spent much of his young career with the Eagles before signing with the Cowboys before the 2021 season, caught the final touchdown of the game before Prescott’s exit.

Clement caught an eight-yard touchdown reception from Prescott.

With the five touchdowns on Saturday, Prescott now has the most touchdown passes in a season. He now has 37.

He surpasses Tony Romo’s record from 2007. That season, Romo set the mark with 36 touchdown passes.

It must be said, though, that the Eagles were resting many of their starters in the game. Some key defensive players were also sidelined due to COVId-19 positive tests.
