In the recap of the game, Longer the game went on, the more the Cowboys seemingly awoke from their doldrums. A first half that saw them stumble their way to a deficit eventually led to Dallas surging in the second half to earn a 28-20 victory over their NFC rivals. Much like the Cowboys themselves, Dak Prescott’s day was a tale of two halves. Through the first two quarters, he was a pedestrian 6-for-10 for 116 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions for a 44.8 passer rating. But he would complete 15-of-20 passes for 145 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the second half to finish the day with a respectable 91.1 passer rating.
The Cowboys did some work on the ground as well , totaling 170 rushing yards, the fourth straight game they’ve surpassed 150. Ezekiel Elliott led the way with 92 yards on 16 carries while Tony Pollard chipped in 60 more on 18 attempts. Similarly, the Dallas defense improved as the day went along. Linebacker Micah Parsons added another two sacks, his sixth multi-sack game of the season, with defensive end Dorance Armstrong adding to his already career high in sacks, now totaling eight. Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch led his side with eight tackles.
