After some plays by the Falcons that failed to materialize, Elliott followed up with a third touchdown, again secured by way of Prescott, bringing it to 21-3.

    The third quarter saw little from the Falcons, who were beginning to look and play as if they were already beaten. Despite one noteworthy hiccup from Elliott who fumbled the ball, giving Atlanta a brief respite, the Cowboys soon regained possession and continued the assault.

    Prescott sealed the final touchdown of the game, bringing the total to 43-3 following a lot of energy with little effect in the fourth quarter, as the clock played out.

    Work to Be Done

    Moving on, the Cowboys will now be looking forward to their next showdown with anticipation and energy. Finding more consistency in play is only going to help the squad insulate themselves from the loss to Denver, and continue to prove to all who would contest that they have perhaps the strongest in the league this year.
