    Tweet Break: Young Cowboys Dominant in Statement Win over Bengals

    The are on top of the world! Well, at least the through the first five weeks of the 2016 NFL season. Entering Sunday with a three game winning streak, and faced their toughest test yet in a home game against the Bengals.

    Passing with flying colors, the Cowboys defeated Cincinnati 28-14, to send us into this #VictoryPoloMonday! Along with this occasion, we have another fresh edition of Tweet Break – featuring the best tweets surrounding another win for !

    Ezekiel Elliott Knows No Limits

    Ezekiel Elliott faced immense pressure from the second he was drafted fourth overall by the Cowboys, being brought in with his once in a lifetime skill set to run the football behind the best in the world.

    It may have taken some time for Elliott to get going, but now the 21 year old has run away from plenty of doubters with his league leading rushing performance. Some of you may know that I represent from New Jersey, meaning that I am very familiar with WFAN radio host Mike Francesca. In the above clip, you hear Francesca bash the Cowboys for passing on for Elliott.

    To put Elliott's 134 yard performance against a tough Bengals in perspective, check out these numbers that show clear improvement in two major areas for Zeke. Dallas' offensive line was dominant in this game, allowing Elliott to pick up a few yards on seemingly every carry before he faced contact, but Zeke banged out 4.4 yards after that contact in this game.

    This kid is electrifying in the silver and blue.

    Mr. Reliable Jason Witten

    In what was an all-around fantastic team win for Jason Garrett's squad, turned in one of the plays of the day with this stiff arm to put a defender on the ground and pick up a huge gain.

    Witten has been a favorite target for Dak Prescott, who distributed the ball to six different receivers in this game for 227 yards. Even Zeke Elliott, featured in the first section here on Tweet Break, took to Twitter to give a shout out to the veteran .

    Cowboys Pass Rush Shows Up

    Making this win even sweeter was the fact that the much maligned Cowboys was able to turn in a great performance, thanks in large part to the return of their best player in .

    Lawrence was used on situational opportunities, rushing as both a RDE and LDE and looking pretty good while doing so. Lawrence also helped free up the likes of , , , and to get after .

    The most emphatic sack of this game from the Cowboys was probably turned in by acquisition Cedric Thornton, who shot through the middle to grab Dalton and drive him all the way back into the end zone.

    It was plays like these that exemplified how the Cowboys were able to impose their will against the Bengals, earning the best win to date in a that has already brought Dallas the same number of wins achieved in 2015.


    Inside The Star will have much more on this game throughout the week, as the Dallas Cowboys prepare for another tough test on the road in Green Bay next week. For now, we thank you for checking out another #VictoryPoloMonday edition of Tweet Break, and remind Cowboys Nation that you can be featured here simply by using the #TweetBreak!
