Nothing has gone right for the Dallas Cowboys against the Broncos at home. Down 30-0, quarterback Dak Prescott and the offense marched onto the field late in the fourth quarter with nothing to gain but their first score of the game and pride.

Dallas put together a nine-play, 75-yard drive in garbage time, capped off by a five-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Malik Turner to escape the first shutout for the Cowboys in AT&T Stadium.

Turner was the player who blocked the punt on the weird conversion for Denver on the first drive of the first half. The reserve receiver was making plays all over the field when the stars watched on the sideline.

The NFL might’ve switched the broadcast off of the Cowboys game, but Dallas still had some fireworks late, regardless of consequence. After a quick defensive stop, Prescott surprisingly returned to the field and repeated the previous drive’s conclusion with a touchdown pass to Turner and a 2-point conversion on the ground

Of all Cowboys receivers to have a big day, Turner was probably right down at the bottom of the list but there’s something to be said for being stubborn and adding points to feel positivity instead of walking to the locker room with their heads down.

If there’s anything good for Dallas to take away from the brutal loss, it’s a bit of rhythm after struggling all day. The Cowboys drop to 6-2 and have to flush this loss before playing the Falcons next week, who took down the Saints in Week 9.
