DISCLAIMER: The following edition of Tweet Break can only be enjoyed as fully intended if you are wearing a polo in celebration of Cowboys Nation‘s fifth straight #VictoryPoloMonday. If you are, which you should be, tweet us your pictures to @CowboysNation!
On that note, what a Monday it is! The
best team in the NFC Dallas Cowboys just went into Green Bay and defeated the Packers on the road 30 to 16. In yet another statement win, young stars Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott did their thing in support of a defensive effort that saw David Irving force three fumbles and Barry Church intercept a pass.
This team is for real, but you already knew that. To help spread that message around, plenty of Cowboys’ fans and media members have took to Twitter to share their thoughts on America’s Team. As is the case following every victory, I gather the best tweets to help you enjoy #VictoryPoloMonday that much more!
Away we go!
Cole Beas(t)ley Doing His Thing
Cole Beasley has become not only a favorite target for Dak Prescott, but one of the better slot WRs in the NFL this season. Elevating his game to the next level, Beasley caught two more scoring passes from Prescott in this win.
Of course, the Packers entered this game depleted a bit defensively, but Beasley was not going to be denied in an offense that once again was without the services of Dez Bryant.
So… @DCBlueStar @DraftCowboys @CowboysNation
Speaking of Dak…
The Dallas Cowboys’ backup quarterback is better than Tom Brady. Get on our level, America. Although he did throw his first interception in this game, Prescott made it through his first eight pass attempts without throwing one to the bad guys, surpassing Tom Brady for the longest streak of attempts to start a career without a pick.
This fourth round rookie, wearing #4, has led the Cowboys to the top of the NFC East, adding to his resume with a win against Aaron Rodgers’ Packers – with Brett Favre watching and having his name put in the Ring of Honor at halftime, the only other QB to wear #4 and beat Rodgers at home besides Dak.
Per @rjochoa: Only two QBs that wear #4 that Rodgers has ever lost to at Lambeau are Favre (with Vikings) and Dak today.
Dak is ours, and we are lucky to have him. The kid gets it.

How ‘Bout That Defense??
For as much attention as Prescott and Elliott have rightfully earned, Rod Marinelli’s defense has done its job all season long – despite all of the doubt and negativity they entered the season with.
In a four turnover performance, the Cowboys did much more than simply bend but not break, coming up with timely stops to never allow this game to slip away despite losing top CB Morris Claiborne before the half.
David Irving was a beast along the defensive line, forcing three fumbles as a rotational player that the Packers had no answers for.
DAVID IRVING IS A GOTDAMN MONSTER SENT FROM THE SEA TO EAT CHEESE
Marinelli has his guys buying into his philosophy on the defensive side of the football for Dallas, and the results have been incredible through six weeks.
Elliott Running to the Record Books?
This means Zeke needs 1105 more yards to break Eric Dickerson’s rookie rushing record of 1808. He’ll need 110.6 per game to do so.
Entering this game, the Packers had allowed 42.8 yards a game on the ground. By the end of the game, the best running back in football had put up 157 rushing yards on them – as Cowboys’ rookie Ezekiel Elliott imposed his will to keep his league lead in rushing.
110.6 yards per game seems reasonable, considering he just became the first rookie to go over 130 yards on the ground in four straight games.
Ezekiel Elliott becomes the first rookie in NFL history to rush for 130+ yards in 4 straight games https://t.co/oRG1oMangM
Eat, Zeke. And maybe put some pants on for your next interview? Maybe not? Whatever works, superstar.
