Cowboys' Ben DiNucci expected to start Sunday night

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Ben DiNucci seems more likely to start Week 8 versus the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night as Andy Dalton remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Dalton "is progressing through the concussion protocol, but all signs are pointing" to DiNucci making his first career start. The seventh-round rookie completed 2-of-3 passes for 39 yards in the Cowboys' loss to the Washington Football Team after Dalton was knocked out of the game. DiNucci threw 45 touchdowns with 18 interceptions from 2018-2019 at James Madison and he added 229 carries for 1,002 yards and 16 touchdowns.

DiNucci has a salary of $6,500 on FanDuel's Week 8 main slate. The Eagles are allowing 20.3 FanDuel points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season.
