Tweet Break: Cowboys Come Back In San Francisco, Earn 3-1 Start

Yesterday, the Dallas Cowboys went on the road to play the San Francisco 49ers without the services of LT Tyron Smith, LG La’el Collins, CB Orlando Scandrick, or WR Dez Bryant. Jason Garrett’s squad spotted the 49ers a 14-0 lead, but came back and got the win that they needed to cap off a tumultuous week around America’s Team.

Today, on our third straight #VictoryPoloMonday, Cowboys Nation celebrates! How exactly have we been enjoying Cowboys’ wins here at Inside The Star? With celebratory editions of Tweet Break, of course!

Hopefully I’m getting good at these by now, or at least better than Dallas’ Head Coach when it comes to handing out high fives:

Let’s celebrate!

Ezekiel Elliott – Not a Bust

Adding to the excitement of this most recent Cowboys’ win is the fact that rookie RB Ezekiel Elliott is really starting to pick things up, eating up the 49ers defense on 23 carries for 138 yards and a score.

Breaking 100 rushing yards for the second game in a row, Elliott has emphatically proven to the critics out there that he was worthy of his draft status out of Ohio State as a truly special running back – leading the league in rushing at 21 years old.

Even veteran Dallas Maverick Dirk Nowitzki took notice of the kid’s impressive day:

Let him eat….

All off season long, we looked forward to seeing Zeke turn in runs like this one, where his offensive line is able to give him a free-pass to the second level of a defense – allowing Elliott to take it from there.

Zeke vs. DB Tartt #29 at the second level. Advantage Zeke.

Of course, as Elliott started to heat up, his offensive line took notice, feeding off the energy that this physical offense of Scott Linehan’s is able to generate. Once the win was in hand, RG Zack Martin was fired up!

The sky is truly the limit for Ezekiel Elliott, off to an outstanding start through the first quarter of his first season in the league. DeMarco Murray who?

Zeke Elliott is your NFL leading rusher with 412 yards; last Cowboy to lead the NFL in rushing was Demarco Murray in 2014 #DallasCowboys

Dazzling Dak Prescott Does it Again

In their previous two wins, the Dallas Cowboys had built leads for Dak Prescott to work with, allowing their defense to play to their strengths and offense to focus on running the football.

Life has been easy for Prescott, who makes even the most difficult plays look easy throughout the game – growing in front of our eyes as the rookie starting quarterback of the Cowboys.

When Dallas fell behind in this game, we all worried a little bit about Prescott and his chances to bring this team back, but sure enough he did. Is there anything this kid can’t do? According to Twitter, that answer is an emphatic “no”.

Dak Prescott stopped during a middle of a TV interview to give Jerry Jones a big hug near locker room after Jerry started pointing at him.

Prescott tosses two more scoring strikes in this game, one to Terrance Williams and the other before halftime to Brice Butler – his first with the team, filling in for Dez Bryant.

Morris Claiborne: Mo Fly Zone

A healthy, confident Morris Claiborne is a force to be reckoned with in the National Football League. Just ask the likes of Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr., Alshon Jeffery, and Torrey Smith – all WRs that Claiborne has locked down over the past two seasons.

Smith was Claiborne’s most recent match up, and Morris responded by forcing the Cowboys’ first turnover of this game in a crucial spot.

Gabbert looks DEEP down field… And @MoClaiborne picks it off! #DallasCowboys #DALvsSF

Claiborne later came up to make a big tackle on a last-ditch 49ers effort short of the sticks on fourth down, sealing the deal with a swagger that only Dallas Cowboys’ faithful can appreciate – having watched Claiborne struggle so much throughout his previous years with the team.

So happy for Mo.

On To Cincinnati

With that, the Cowboys will look ahead to a week 5 home game against the Bengals. Cincinnati comes in as one of the most talented teams in the league, but Dallas will be looking forward to getting DE DeMarcus Lawrence back on the field – along with potentially Tyron Smith and Orlando Scandrick.

Inside The Star will prepare you as always for this next game, but for now we collectively enjoy this winning Monday feeling with you – Cowboys Nation – with this edition of Tweet Break.
