By the time the Broncos’ stunning 30-16 victory over the Cowboys had reached the end, chants of “Let’s go Broncos!” was the only sound heard in AT&T Stadium. Cowboys fans either had already exited or were so quiet you could hear their Super Bowl hopes drop.

The Cowboys’ six-game winning streak was gone in a flash of orange jerseys. A week after stealing a game in Minnesota with Cooper Rush starting at quarterback, the Cowboys had one of their worst performances in recent memory.

Dallas did avoid its first shutout since Dec. 16, 2018, against the Colts, with two late touchdowns in garbage time after trailing 30-0 with less than five minutes left.

Prescott, who missed last week’s game with his right calf strain, did not look like the MVP candidate he was over his first six starts. He completed 8 of his first 23 passes for 102 yards and an interception before two meaningless touchdown drives.

Prescott finished 19-of-39 for 232 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, and Ezekiel Elliott had 10 carries for 51 yards.

The Broncos, in their first game since the Von Miller trade, were the team that looked like Super Bowl contenders as they moved to 5-4.

Teddy Bridgewater went 19-of-28 for 249 yards and a touchdown. Tim Patrick caught four passes for 85 yards and a touchdown and Jerry Jeudy caught six passes for 69 yards.

Javonte Williams rushed for 111 yards on 17 carries, and Melvin Gordon had 21 carries for 80 yards and a touchdown.

The Broncos had 407 yards to the Cowboys’ 290.

  1. The final score was 30-0. Ignore the 16 points of garbage time points that the Cowboys scored. Dak is a stat stuffer.

  2. Y’all might want to send somebody over to Skip Bayless house for a welfare check. I am serious.

    The Browns are also game planning to only give the 2nd best RB in the NFL 10 carries , while they throw one of the worst QBs in the NFL 35x. That will lead to a Bengals blowout. Browns have ZERO chance of beating the Bengals

    Browns close chaotic week by dumping Burrow, Bengals 41-16

    Broncos beat Cowboys 30-16

    LOL

  4. Yet another example of the Cowboys exposing themselves as the frauds they always turn out to be. The effective final was 30-0 and the Broncos dominated TOP with a stout defensive performance, solid QB play, and a ground game that couldn’t be stopped.

  5. By now everyone should be aware that the Cowboy’s defense is NOT as good as they would like us to believe. Denver went over, around and thru them and basically took the Boys’ to the woodshed for a wuppin!

  6. People got excited about the Cowboys beating the Vikings without Prescott, but this reality check exposes both the Cowboys and Vikings.

  7. Dallas out coached in every phase today. They thought it’d b a cakewalk without Von Miller & they never woke up to play football. At home even!
    And what is up with Buffalo!?

    A good, albeit fluke, win for the Broncos. Boys will be back next week.

    Fluke Win? Cowboys got whipped in every way they could. That’s NO FLUKE!!!

  9. Lol! How bout them Broncos! The Cowboys haven’t been a Super Bowl team for a few decades…and they’re still not.

  10. I was at the game. Denver got every break imaginable. Enjoy today because when the playoffs start you’ll be watching Dallas from home dreaming about your one lucky day.

    Did you stick around to the end for the Broncos fans to take over your stadium? Cowboys haven’t beat the Broncos since 1995. Three super bowl victories since the Cowboys last.
