It was a massacre.
Against the winless Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Prescott completed 21 of 27 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns, becoming the first rookie in National Football League history to post six starts with a passer rating of 100 or greater in his team's first eight games of the season.
There wasn't much work in this game for the Dallas Cowboys special teams unit. Quarterback Dak Prescott was nearly flawless in this game, completing 21-of-27 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns. His rating for the game was 141.8. As stunning as the emergence of Dak Prescott and the power of Ezekiel Elliott (behind, of course, that superb offensive line and with a multi-faceted receiving corps) have been, the play of the defense has been even more unbelievable.
It marked Witten's first 100-yard game since the 2013 regular-season finale and made him the oldest Cowboys pass-catcher to cross that barrier since a 35-year-old Terrell Owens did the deed in Week 17 of 2008. Cole Beasley and Gavin Escobar caught Prescott's other two scoring passes. Also, their fourth-overall pick, Ezekiel Elliott was a bust as he had just 51 yards rushing on the day.
The Cowboys offense was as efficient as it's been all year. It's possible they could hit the "rookie wall" at some point down the road, but from this vantage point, the Dak & Zeke train doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. No matter how good or bad a team is, when you stake them a two touchdown lead and then win by seven, you are showing both resiliency and determination. Both plays had receivers standing wide open waiting for passes, which all came down to route running and play calling. "Flags will come, flags may not come, but we can't let that affect our game".
T.J. Yeldon wasn't as effective with seven rushes for 33 yards, but he did catch a late-game touchdown pass among his five receptions for 32 more yards.
Trump, Clinton focus on crucial states in campaign's final days
After seeing her solid lead shrink as her email woes resurfaced, Clinton appears to have retained an edge in the final days. This election features two main presidential candidates who present a stark choice for the future of Nigerians in America.
After Matt Prater kicked a 58-yard field goal as time expired to force overtime, Tate finished the opening drive when he ran through arm tackles by Xavier Rhodes and Harrison Smith and leaped in for the winning score. He rushed for 92 yards and two touchdowns against the Browns.
Of course all that noise is quiet now as Dallas is sitting pretty at 7-1-sorry about that, doubters.
Elliott extended the Cowboys' lead over the Browns to 14-3 with a 10-yard touchdown run with 10:02 to play in the first half. With 891 rushing yards through 8 games, Elliott is on pace for almost 1,800 yards. Only the 1975 Browns started the season with as many losses before their first victory as this year's team.
Kessler, in his first game back after sitting out one week with a concussion, was sacked four times behind an offensive line that has struggled all season.
The Dallas Cowboys have the best record in the NFC and are tied with the New England Patriots for the best record in the NFL.
