Prescott, Cowboys Carve Up Patriots, WIn in OT, Observations

The Dallas Cowboys got the ball at their own 20-yard line in O.T. and there wasn’t much doubt that they were going to move the ball against a gassed Patriots’ defense.

Dak Prescott, who is definitely an MVP candidate at this juncture of the season, then led the Cowboys down the field before hitting Cee Dee Lamb for a 35-yard touchdown to win the game and drop the Patriots to 2-4 and their first 0-4 start at home since Drew Bledsoe’s rookie season.

Although Dallas outgained the Patriots by a wide margin (567-335), in plays (82-51), first downs (32-17), and with a whopping time-of-possession margin (39:17 to 26:51), the Patriots somehow hung with the Cowboys all game long and had the lead with under a minute to go in regulation.
