The Dallas Cowboys continue their streak to improve to a league-best 9-1 record so far in the 2016 regular season. Dak Prescott also continued his impressive rookie year with 301 passing yards and three touchdowns to stretch the winning streak for the Cowboys at 9 games.
Dallas lost their season opener and lost starting quarterback Tony Romo earlier in the year but Prescott has continued to prove that he is the future of the franchise under center. Veteran Romo is back in the line-up but they don’t need him for now and likely to leave the team after the season.
9-1 reason to trade Tony Romo?
The Cowboys could very well move to that direction of trading Romo in the offseason since Prescott was again very much reliable against a Ravens team that dropped to 5-5 for the season.
Prescott passed an efficient 27-of-36 completions without an interception and also had 16 rushing yards on two carries. Fellow rookie running back Ezekiel Elliot also continued his good first year with 97 rushing yards on 25 carries against the Ravens.
The Dallas Cowboys wide receivers also played well with five players with over 30 receiving yards Sunday. Veteran Dez Bryant led the way with 80 yards on 6 catches while Coley Beasley had 59 yards on 5 receptions.
Close first half; Cowboys’ D excellent in 2nd
The Cowboys vs. Ravens match-up was tied after the first half, 10-10. But the Cowboys’ defense held the Ravens scoreless until the last series of the game.
The Dallas Cowboys’ 9-1 record is the best in the league and they are one game ahead of the New England Patriots (8-2). Dallas faces the Washington Redskins next.
