Tweet Break: Prescott’s Poise, Elliott’s Eating Keep Cowboys Record Win Streak Alive

    On December 30th, 2015, played his final game at Mississippi State, rolling past North Carolina State in the Belk Bowl to conclude a 9-4 season.

    Thirteen days later, on January 12th, played his final collegiate game at Ohio State – carrying his Buckeyes to a national championship win.

    Now, the dynamic duo have the at the top of the NFL in their first year in the league, rolling to their ninth straight win Sunday at home against the Ravens.

    It wasn't a pretty win, as Baltimore ensured it wouldn't be, but at the end of the day the Cowboys made even more in 2016 – beating the Ravens for the first time to set the record for the team's longest ever winning streak.

    With a quick turnaround for against the Redskins, I hope that can get the most out of today's #VictoryPoloMonday. To help out, here is our accompanying Tweet Break – featuring the best Cowboys related tweets for #BALvsDAL.

    Grinding out Yards

    Perhaps the best part about the Cowboys' 2016 success is that other teams know what to expect from Dallas' , yet they still power this team to victory each week.

    Ezekiel Elliott became the Cowboys' rookie rushing champion, surpassing despite just six first-half carries. His fresh legs then helped Dallas absolutely dominate the second half of this game to secure the win.

    Cowboys Nation is always hungry for more, and with Thanksgiving being our next chance to see Zeke run the rock, we'll happily enjoy the fact that this rookie will never. stop. eating. 

    Dak Prescott's Progress

    In what I believe can honestly be called one of the weirdest weeks in Cowboys history, thanks to 's and secession of the starting QB job to Dak Prescott, the hot-handed rookie QB handled things as flawlessly as ever – begging for questions that focused on the task at hand with the Ravens.

    Now that he beat the Ravens behind three more touchdown passes, Prescott is continuing to impress – leaving the media to dig deeper for questions that can put Dak's unprecedented career thus far into perspective.

    Of course, at its purest level, Prescott is just a kid having fun on the field right now with his backfield mate Zeke Elliott.

    Just Getting Started…

    The voices of reason in the Dallas Cowboys' locker room understand that this 9-1 start, with the potential to go to 10-1 in just three days, should be regarded as just the start for a team that has chased the elusive for 20 years.

    Even , in just his second year (and first full one) with the Cowboys is hopeful about the opportunity to make this a truly special season.

    The Warriors scored a bunch of points last year and won a bunch of games. The Cowboys are doing the same thing right now. Sports! Winning!

    Bad-Blooded Birds?

    The were supposedly going to be yet another true test for the first-place Cowboys, a narrative that has been played on repeat so much that you inherently skip it every time it comes up on shuffle.

    Their made things tough at times on Dallas, but they left with a loss – and one that they didn't accept all too gracefully.


    You used to be the Browns, Ravens Nation. You should be better at handling losses. That, and you didn't do a whole lot when it comes to stopping 's best .

    Let's have a great Thanksgiving week, Cowboys Nation! Enjoy the rest of #VictoryPoloMonday, and stay posted with Inside The Star as we continue to break down this Ravens win while looking ahead to Washington.
