Things were looking dire for the Dallas Cowboys entering tonight’s game with a 5-6 record but Dak Prescott and company kept their foot on the gas. Prescott finished the night with 102 passing yards, 2 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. It wasn’t a great night in terms of yardage for Prescott but at last he threw for 2 touchdowns, didn’t turn over the ball, and secured the win. Alfred Morris also starred in this one rushing for 127 yards and 1 touchdown. Morris used to play for the Redskins so it had to be a sweet night for him. Dez Bryant also made some plays for the Dallas offense finishing with 61 receiving yards and 1 touchdown. Bryant was able to out jump a Redskins defender on a 50/50 ball in the 4th quarter for a big Cowboys’ score. Jason Witten and Rod Smith both punched in touchdowns for Dallas too and overall it was a strong showing for America’s Team. Kirk Cousins did all he could for the Redskins but there just wasn’t enough successful plays to win. Cousins threw for 251 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions however Washington couldn’t overcome their slow start. Ryan Grant caught 1 touchdown and added 76 yards through the air. Josh Doctson also grabbed a touchdown from Cousins late in the game that would be it for the Redskins offense though. Demarcus Lawrence played out of his mind for Rod Marinelli’s defensive unit. Lawrence chalked up 4 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 forced fumble. Anthony Hitchens had himself quite a game as well he ended up tallying 15 combined tackles. Zach Brown continued to lead the way for the Redskins D, he had a team high 7 tackles. D.J Swearinger did all he could for Jay Gruden’s ball club coming up with 6 defensive stops. The home crowd was rocking from start to finish and that’s because the Cowboys put together a strong four quarter performance. Jerry Jones’s dreams are alive and well with only four games remaining in the season, they’ll have to win out if they hope to get into the playoffs.
