Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott played near-perfect in the first half and the momentum carried into the second half. After the Dallas defense forced a three-and-out, Prescott continued orchestrating a signature night. The drive started with a 26-yard beauty to tight end Dalton Schultz and then he added a pre-snap change that netted another 26-yard gain, this time to wide receiver CeeDee Lamb.
Approaching the red zone, running back Tony Pollard found a crease for an 18-yard gain, shrugging off defenders to set up first-and-goal. Following a short gain on first down, Prescott threw a pass that squeaked by the hands of cornerback Carlton Davis and into those of wide receiver Michael Gallup for the touchdown.
Gallup teetered near the back of the endzone and may have stepped out of bounds before making the catch in the field of play but Davis tipping the throw allows the Cowboys receiver to reestablish his place. An odd rule helps Dallas and Prescott has his fourth touchdown of the night.
After the score, Mike McCarthy elected to send out kicker Brett Maher for another field goal. This one looked better than the first three, but it clanged off the top of the upright and went out.
