DAL 43, ATL 3: Cowboys Restore Order in Rout of Falcons

    The Cowboys only scored seven points in the second half but didn't even need them, being up 36-3 at halftime against the Falcons. The next 30 minutes were a formality as Dallas cruised to a 43-3 dismantling of Atlanta in Week 10.

    It was hard to come away with any complaints from this one. Dallas did it in all three phases and righted a lot of wrongs from last week's collapse against the Broncos; hopefully an anomaly based on today's result and what we saw from the Cowboys from Weeks 1-8.

    Playing just three quarters in the blowout, put up 296 passing yards and two touchdowns through the air plus another score rushing. The best thing we saw from Dak today though was the accuracy and efficiency that were missing last week being fully back on display.

    caught both of the passing TDs and led all receivers with 94 yards on six catches. All of his work came in the first half as, with the big lead, Lamb was kept out the rest of game following a minor arm .

    scored two rushing touchdowns and had some great pass blocks in an otherwise quiet performance; just 41 yards on 14 carries. Zeke did have a fumble in the third quarter, his first of the season, in a rare miscue from the Cowboys today. chipped in 42 rushing yards and 56 receiving.

    The was arguably more impressive than the today. Atlanta was held to just 214 offensive yards and gave up three turnovers. got back on track with his eight pick of the year while and also had INTs off .

    registered his team-leading sixth sack while also had a sack and some other strong plays. Armstrong also showed up on with a blocked punt that recovered in the endzone for another Cowboys touchdown.

    It was a complete victory, dominant on both sides of the ball, and a big statement for Dallas as they improve to 7-2. While the Falcons aren't that good in 2021, you could've said the same thing last week about the Broncos.

    This was about the Cowboys showing who they really are again and proving, hopefully for good, that their last game was the fluke.

    The proving process continues next week in Kansas City.

    Way to bounce back, I thought we’d beat them pretty good after getting whooped last week, but GOOD LORD i didn’t see a 36-3 lead at half, just DEMOLISHED the Falcons, now I like to see them do this now to the hapless Chiefs in Arrowhead as they’re still tryna find themselves


    Agree Jess, very “hard to complain” about this dominating performance on both sides of the ball. Great bounce back from last week. Makes you wonder how a team can look so bad to looking so good in a week span. Well, some say it’s a week to week league, and continuity may be the most important factor in this whole NFL equation.

    BTW, DA had been coming on well recently and he’s very much needed now with the starters out.

    Great team win, let’s hope THIS continues against the Chiefs.

    After being humiliated last week the boys came out with something to prove and I would say they proved it pretty good! I just wished it was the no name team out of Washington that we played today but their time will come! We have to bottle this mentality up and open it each week !!Don’t let up!!!!


    I think VAM ppl poo poo on the idea of guys needing practice, guys like Dak last week, or as we saw today with Russ who hasn’t played in awhile and A Rod who didn’t practice all week cuz of covid, even these greats need to get reps in, you can’t expect them to not skip a beat and come out there and torch teams in the NFL,

    ppl have fallen in love too much with the Rams and there philosophy as far as like that’s the way to go, (though they ain’t won a SB yet) guys need preseason, they need practice to get into a rhythm, and that’s what we saw in week one with some teams like the Bills and Packers having some bad week 1 games as well as others, team’s will pay if they think they can just show up and wipe the floor with another team, this isn’t College, it’s the NFL


    Pretty sure DP practiced at his normal turns before the Broncos game and it was the eighth game of the season.

    Overall DP is having a great year. And this last game was a great bounce back for him and the team. Loved it. Hope that level of play continues. Unfortunately he and the team had a bad clunker. Usually, and to his credit, DP himself doesn’t make excuses, so why should we.

    Total team victory. Every good team in the NFL this year has had a Broncos type game. Sometimes the other team just plays great and you just don’t have it that day. Been seeing that the last couple weeks, with several contenders losing to bad teams, and good QBs stinking. Sign of a good team is how do you respond to a bad game. 3 games in 12 days coming up, with two on the road. Should tell us alot about this team.
