On Sunday, Dak Prescott threw for 444 yards with three touchdown passes to lead Dallas to a 35-27 win. The game was in Detroit, but seemed like a home game for Dallas when at one point in the third quarter the crowd came alive–just not for Detroit. 


Dallas struggled to get anything going in the first quarter and was trailing the Lions, led by their backup quarterback, Jeff Driskel. Dallas was trailing the Lions in the first quarter 3-7. However, the second quarter was different. Prescott led this Dallas team to a 21-7 run, which ended the half with a score of 24-14. 


The second half Dallas’s defense finally stepped up when the offense needed them. Dallas scored one more touchdown and a field goal in the second half leading to the win.


The main story to the game is Dak Prescott and how he performed and Ezekiel Elliott’s struggles in yet another game. Ezekiel Elliott rushed for only 45 yards on 16 attempts. Elliott averaged  2.8 yards a carry. Elliott had a down day but didn’t effect Prescott’s ability to lead, like most of this season. 


“Dak is playing the best football I have ever seen him play,” Elliott said about Prescott. Prescott has been playing the best football of his career and has led his team to a good 6-4 start to the season.
