    The took control of their own playoff destiny Thursday afternoon, defeating the 31-23. The win improved the Cowboys record to 6-5, and places them atop the East heading into the final week of November.

    Leading just 10-7 at halftime, things were looking rather bleak for the Cowboys early on. They had yet to move the ball with much consistency, and their was non-existent.

    But midway through the third quarter, then trailing by 3 points, all of that changed. had the breakout game we'd all been waiting and hoping for, catching 8 passes for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns. This, of course, includes a 90 yard touchdown catch and run which became the longest passing touchdown of the season.

    For the third straight week the Cowboys came through with a complete team win, led by their for much of the game before their offense finally took over and made some big plays.

    Other Notes

    • continues to prove why he is one of the best running backs in all of football. This week he rushed for 121 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries, and set the tone for the Cowboys offense from the opening drive. As he goes, so do the Cowboys.
    • deserves some credit, guys. Yes he is still struggling with pocket awareness and has some lapses in accuracy, but Prescott has looked like a completely different these last 3 weeks. Thursday he threw for a season high 289 yards, as well as 2 big touchdowns to Amari Cooper. He also pulled out a ridiculous touchdown run to put the Cowboys up big in the fourth quarter.
    • Hey! The Cowboys created takeaways! In fact, Dallas intercepted Colt McCoy 3 times this afternoon, aiding the offense and stopping any hopes of a Redskins comeback.
    • had another sack, by the way, and he is now up to 9 on the season.
    • The Cowboys will play arguably the NFC's best team next Thursday night, when the come to Dallas. That will be another huge one for these surging Cowboys, and a test against a quality playoff team.
