Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb (88) celebrates with teammates after scoring a touchdown during the second half against the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium.

Dak Prescott overcame an early pick-six to help the Cowboys tie the game at 34 with his second touchdown pass to CeeDee Lamb with 5:49 left. And while the Cowboys were unable to score a touchdown again, their two field goals in the final minutes were enough.
