Thursday night’s game consisted of poor weather conditions, injuries aplenty and poor preparation. The Dallas Cowboys struggled to get the running game going, placing the onus to get the offense moving squarely on the shoulders of quarterback Dak Prescott. He was able to do so as he found solace in three main targets: WRs CeeDee Lamb, T.Y. Hilton and TE Dalton Schultz. The latter was able to make the big plays, the scoring plays.
Following a turnover filled first half, Dallas entered the third quarter only up by four points. After an extremely helpful penalty set Dallas up in the red zone, the Prescott-to-Schultz connection finally established some momentum.
The double-digit lead didn’t last, however, and Dallas needed another Schultz score to finally make it a comfortable margin. The soon-to-be free agent all but sealed the win with his second touchdown reception of the game on this beautifully placed ball.
Although he has been injured and inconsistent this season, and with two rookies breathing down his neck, Schultz cemented himself in Cowboys’ history with his performance.
