The Cowboys blast commanders behind four touchdown passes from Dak Prescott.
The Dallas Cowboys continue to have success at home, even though the exact moment of this game was slightly different from the team’s previous four.
And to top it all off, DaRon Bland returned a Sam Howell ball for 63 yards to set an NFL record for his fifth pick-six in the year and second within five days.
This time at AT&T Stadium, the Cowboys outscored opponents 198–60 in the final period to defeat Washington and preserve their dominance.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott completed passes to ten different teammates in addition to tossing four additional touchdown passes.
In the second half, the defense forced four fourth-down stops. For the 22nd consecutive try of the season, Brandon Aubrey made the field goal.
The Cowboys’ next five games against the Seattle Seahawks, Eagles, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, then Detroit Lions will be exciting.
Before the last stretch approaches, they have the opportunity to demonstrate whether they are a serious contender for the Super Bowl.
With four touchdown passes from quarterback Dak Prescott, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Washington Commanders 45-10 on Thanksgiving.
With the victory, the Cowboys improved to 9-3 and extended their streak of victories at home to 13 games.
DaRon Bland completed the scoring with a 63-yard intercepted return for a touchdown, his fifth of the season and a record-setting touchdown run for the NFL. Tony Pollard scored a seven-yard touchdown run.
Sam Howell passed for 300 yards and ran against a touchdown for the Commanders, who had dropped eight of their previous ten games.
On the opening play of the game, Jordan Love passed to Christian Watson form 53 yards out and finished with two touchdown passes.
Contrary numeral Three fumbles by Jared Goff, one of which was recovered by Jonathan Owens for a touchdown, showed how he battled against the Packers defense.
When Bland’s fifth pick-6 ended Prescott’s sideline scoring spree and concluded a 25-point fourth quarter, the game was already decided. With his sixth interception return fer a touchdown this year, Bland set an NFL record.
The Cowboys defeated the Washington Commanders 45-10 on Thursday, extending their home winning streak to 13 games—the longest in 42 years.
The Cowboys (8-3) ended up tying a 55-year-old team record with their seventh victory by at least 20 points this season, even though the Dallas advantage entering the fourth quarter was under two touchdowns for the first time among five home games this season.
Prescott remarked, “I hadn’t noticed him pick it at first; I just felt the crowd erupt and looked up to see 26 had the ball within his hands.” “I just ran to the sidelines to get an excellent view at that point.”
In the following half, Dallas’ defense, which had conceded over two hundred yards for the very first time in four games, stiffened at crucial moments and forced Washington to punt three times on fourth down.
Early during the fourth quarter, CeeDee Lamb’s touchdown and two-point conversion receptions gave Dallas a 21-point advantage.
Sam Howell had completed 300 yards of passing and one rushing touchdown, but he was sacked on his 24-yard line on a fourth down.
With a minimum of two touchdown passes for the fifth straight game, Prescott threw over 331 yards, one yard short of his career high.
The other players with scoring grabs were KaVontae Turpin, Rico Dowdle, and Brandin Cooks.
Following his 34-yard touchdown, the 5-foot-7 Turpin made history by diving into an enormous Salvation Army kettle outside the end zone—a stunt made popular by Ezekiel Elliott years prior.
Lamb spiked the football into the final zone following a 2-point grab at the back side of the end zone that was initially ruled out of bounds; however, the play was later overturned upon review.
All of which were insignificant in comparison to the hysteria surrounding Bland’s record-breaking performance that broke a tie among three players when he forced Howell, McLaurin, as well as running fullback Brian Robinson to miss tackles inside the 20.
In order to “get control of it,” which involved Dallas calling a timeout, Bland’s teammates hoisted him to one of the kettles, as coach Mike McCarthy expressed gratitude to the officials for their assistance.
