The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly For Cowboys Against Baltimore

    The have won nine straight games in a row and are without a doubt one of the best teams in the entire NFL. That's quite a turnaround from the 4-12 team they were last year.

    After watching the first half, it was hard to imagine that the Cowboys would be the victor in this game. The did everything in their power to control and , but the young rookies were too much for them in the end.

    Speaking of Elliott and Prescott, they continue to break records with their impressive play on the field.

    Prescott threw for at least two touchdowns in his fifth consecutive game, tying Dan Marino and as the only other rookies to ever accomplish that feat. Elliott broke 's rookie rushing record for the Dallas Cowboys (1,007) that was set back in 1977. Elliott now has 1,102 rushing yards on the season.

    Although this was still an impressive win, I still wanted to share with you what I thought was The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly for the Dallas Cowboys against the Baltimore Ravens.

    The Good 

    Cowboys Headlines - The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly For Cowboys Against Baltimore 1I actually debated about which part of this game I wanted to mention in the good category, but how could you not say that what Dak Prescott was able to do doesn't belong here.

    Prescott and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys started off a little slow, but he ended the game throwing for 301 yards and three touchdowns.

    Honestly, I was a little worried while watching the first half that this was the game that we finally see Prescott unravel, but to his credit he stood in there and finished strong.

    There were a few times that I thought he might not be able to continue after some of the big hits he took, but I really admire how he continued to stand in the pocket and deliver the ball downfield. I really liked how he finally got and involved as well.

    This performance solidifies why he is still the starting for the Dallas Cowboys, despite a healthy .

    The Bad

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and probably catch a lot of flak, but I think the bad this game was on the defensive side of the ball for the Dallas Cowboys.

    I honestly believe that this was arguably their worst performance of the season, but they were still able to do just enough to secure a victory.

    The Cowboys continues to perform over expectations, but really struggled with an average Baltimore Ravens offense yesterday afternoon.

    Terrance West was pretty much untouched when he ran for a touchdown in the first quarter, and had all day to throw the entire game.

    This game was a lot closer than it should've been because the defense struggle get the Ravens off the field in some key situations.

    The defense can't continue to play like this if they want to be a playoff contender. The Cowboys will face better offenses down the road, especially in the postseason.

    The Ugly

    It would be too easy to say that the entire first half or all of the for the Dallas Cowboys was the ugly, but I'm going to go a different direction here and say that it was Ezekiel Elliott.

    No, I'm not saying that Elliott's performance was in any way ugly. I'm saying that he faced the top in the NFL and had to grind out those ugly/dirty yards that we haven't had to see him do just yet.

    He finished the night just 3 yards from hitting the 100 yard mark (97) on 25 carries, and also added four receptions for 30 yards.

    This might be one of my favorite performances by Elliott to date. He didn't see very many wide open running lanes, but he continued to grind out yards, which opened up the .

    This is one of the reasons why Ezekiel Elliott is so valuable to this offense. Defenses have to account for him and this time was the beneficiary because for some reason the Ravens defense decided to devote one defender to try and him.
