Dallas Cowboys: 3 Takeaways From Win Over Bengals


Prescott’s 155 pass attempts without an interception are the 2nd most to start a career in National Football League history behind Brady’s 162 in 2000-01. Tom Brady now holds the record at 162 straight before his first interception. Through 10 seasons as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback, the former undrafted free agent out of Eastern Illinois has thrown for 34,154 yards, 247 touchdowns and 117 interceptions, averaging 7.9 yards per attempt (tied for sixth all-time) while going to four Pro Bowls. With the loss, they slipped to 2-3 on the season and are starting to get to the point where they will need a strong finish if they hope to want a chance at making the playoffs. He even predicted that Cowboys will only win one game this year.

But Garrett deflected questions about a pending quarterback controversy between Romo and rookie Dak Prescott, and wasn’t ready to give a timeline for Romo’s return.

Ezekiel Elliott has thumbs as quick as his feet. They led the entire contest. That was 6.2 yards carry. Bailey’s extra point extended the Dallas lead to 14-0. The Cowboys rushed 29 times for 180 yards as a team. Last year, they had 11… in sixteen games. On the first play of the possession, Elliot burst up the middle untouched and raced the 60 yards into the end zone for a touchdown. He’s played so well, he’s beginning to cause a little controversy in Cowboys Nation as to whether Tony Romo will get his job back once he returns.

Quarterback Andy Dalton was sacked four times and hit an additional nine times. If you count the preseason, he’s broken a bone in three of the past five games he’s played.

New England improved to 4-1 with a 33-13 victory at Cleveland, as quarterback Tom Brady returned from his season-opening four-game suspension. That score ended a 12-play, 77-yard drive and took 5:03 off the clock. Ezekiel Elliott ran for 134 yards and two touchdowns, whileDak Prescott added a passing and rushing score.

“We thought Mo was an exceptional athlete when he came out (of college)”.

So far in five games, Ryan has thrown onlya couple of interceptions and is coming off a season where he threw 16 interceptions. (Surprising that it’s played out the way it has, not that I was wrong … that’s pretty standard.) So each deserves its own special attention. “But I just think about the perception of it all”. He goes about it the right way.

Regardless, Dallas is 4-1 and after last season, when Romo went down, that is an incredible feat. We started off hot. It was just an excellent job at creating a game-plan and executing it by the Cowboys’ on Sunday.

The win put the Cowboys (4-1) into first place in the NFC East, a half-game ahead of Philadelphia (3-1).

The majority of recent reports have hinted at a possible Week 8 return, but even with Monday’s MRI revealing good progress, Romo won’t necessarily be game-ready by the initially targeted October 30 date. It will be very interesting, regardless of what the end result is.
