The Cowboys are on a roll.
Led by rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott and rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, Dallas jumped out to a 28-0 lead over Cincinnati today and won 28-14 in a game that was never as close as that final score would indicate.
had 15 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns, while adding three catches for 37 yards. Prescott completed 18 of 24 passes for 227 yards, with a touchdown and no interceptions, and he also added a rushing touchdown.
After losing in Week One, it appeared that the Cowboys were going to suffer through another rough year with Tony Romo injured. But the Cowboys have now won four in a row, and at 4-1 they’re in first place in the NFC East. Dallas looks like a playoff team, with or without Romo.
The Bengals, on the other hand, are looking like they’re going to struggle to make the playoffs. At 2-3 Cincinnati is behind both Pittsburgh and Baltimore in the AFC North.
As the Bengals head home to Cincinnati to regroup, there’s going to be some celebrating in Dallas tonight. The Cowboys are a better team than anyone was expecting.
