DAL 40, JAX 7: Cowboys Answer The Bell In Dominant Win

It seems like a pattern is developing here during the 2018 Dallas season.

For a team and an which has looked absolutely horrid on the road, the Cowboys appear to be one of the better teams in the conference when playing at home.

That trend continued today as the Cowboys dominated the now 3-3 Jacksonville Jaguars from start to finish, en route to a 40-7 home victory over last year’s AFC semi-finalist.

had possibly his best game of the season, making up for his poor performance in Houston a week ago. While Prescott only threw for 183 yards on 17 completions, it was his 82 rushing yards on 11 carries which put this offense over the top. Plus, the Cowboys were in “kill the clock” mode for basically the entire second half.

The real story here was the , however. The o-line which has been heavily criticized by the fan base during the season, and has shouldered a heavy amount of the blame for the poor offensive production, finally stepped up and played to their standards this afternoon. Prescott had great pass protection all day, which was evident in his passing numbers and ’s receiving performance.

Dallas is now 3-3 on the season, tied with the defending champ Eagles and a half game behind Washington for first place in the East. Next week the Cowboys have a huge game in Washington with first place on the line.

Other Notes

  • Cole Beasley proved once again why he’s worthy of the pay day he’ll get (probably somewhere else) this . Beasley caught 9 balls for 101 yards and 2 touchdowns, dominating man coverage all game long.
  • These linebackers are legit. Both and were all over the field today, anchoring a group which was impressive yet again.
  • simply can’t miss, going 4 for 4 on field goal attempts including a 55 yarder in the second half.
  • went over 100 yards rushing again this week, and it was somehow still a quiet day for him in the grand scheme of things.
  • was the best on either team today, deflecting 3 passes and staying sticky to the Jacksonville wide outs all day. He’s been incredible this season and Sunday’s game was no different.
  • Oh, and sack alert! Party!
