DAL 35, NE 29: Prescott Hits Lamb for Game-Winning TD in OT

It will be a while before we know if 2021 is a special season for the Cowboys. But if that is how we ultimately remember it, Week 6 will be a memorable stop along the way. Dallas had to overcome early turnovers and a huge defensive gaffe late to force overtime and sneak out of New England with a 35-29 victory over the Patriots.

hit for a 35-yard touchdown to win in the extra period. The Patriots took the ball to start overtime but were forced to punt, then Dallas drove it 80 yards to put the game away.

The final play was the capper for huge days for both Prescott and Lamb. Dak threw for 445 yards and three touchdowns while CeeDee finished with 149 yards and two scores on nine catches.

Big plays were the story of this one. The Cowboys were dominating in yardage and time-of-possession throughout but had an interception and fumble in the endzone during the first half. The unfinished drives, plus a blown 4th-down conversion that gave New England a short field, helped the Patriots take a 14-10 lead into halftime.

The Cowboys cleaned it up in the second half and appeared to have put them game away when got a pick-six, his second of the year and seventh INT overall, on a late New England drive. But after a failed 2-point attempt and kick off, blown coverage by Diggs and allowed Mac Jones to hit Kendrick Bourne for a 75-yard toiuchdown.

The Pats converted their own 2-pointer to go up by three, and Dallas then drove it enough to set up from 49 yards out. The veteran , who'd missed one earlier in the 4th from 51 yards, connected to tie the game with only 20 seconds left.

There will be many moments and mistakes to dissect in the coming days. But the Cowboys went on the road and did what they had to against arguably the best coach in NFL and one of the best defenses so far in 2021. It was a gutsy, dirty win and one that showed the mettle of this team.

The victory was huge for Dallas as they were 's only winner in Week 6. The Eagles fell on Thursday night to Tampa Bay while Washington and New York each took home losses today to Kansas City and and the .

The Cowboys will now take their five-game win streak into their bye and look to keep it going in two weeks against the Vikings.

I never like to say that the referees are partial to any team but the call on TS with his hands to the neck area of the Patriots DE was right but I thought it was on the picky side and he failed to see the blow to the head of Dak! There were several other calls that were suspect also! I thought our boys were head and shoulders better than the Patriots but the penalties kept the game close! I’m scared that our war daddy Tyron Smith will have a hard time finishing the season maybe we ought to Shop Gallup for a stud Lineman that could come in and play tackle! Just a thought!!

5-1 at the bye, no (at least right of the moment) major injuries EXCEPT Dak’s strained calf. Thank goodness they have a bye. Lael back, maybe Dorance and Gallimore too? Tyron seems to have gotten abused this game, so many penalties!!

Obviously happy with the win, just didn’t think we would have to go to Overtime to beat Pats. Think they have a good young QB in Jones, very poised for a rookie.

DP played great, outside of the two TOs. One was debatable, but we have to do a better job with FIRST AND GOAL FROM THE ONE YARD LINE.

TD PICK SIX, CeeDee, CW, DS, RG, GZ, lots of positives, but things to work on. Bye week and some players coming back should help.
