The Dallas Cowboys had not defeated the New England Patriots since Bill Clinton occupied the Oval Office. That was put to bed today (no pun intended).
Quarterback Dak Prescott's tossed the game-winning touchdown to Ceedee Lamb in overtime, a 35-yard bomb that secured the 35-29 victory and improving the Cowboys boys to 5-1 in 2021 as they enter the bye week.
The Cowboys had some work to do going into the game's second half, as they had only found the end zone once during the first 30 minutes of game action despite four trips into the red zone; they were also penalized seven times while committing four turnovers. Prescott would connect with Lamb for their first TD connection of the afternoon shortly into the second half, only to see a chance at a win narrowly missed thanks to a wide field goal attempt.
Meanwhile for the Patriots, who are continuing to adjust to the harsh reality of not having Tom Brady under center, they've dropped to 2-4. Additionally, all four losses have come at home, the first time they've dropped their first four home games in a season since 1993. Oof.
Prescott finished the afternoon completing 36 of 51 passes for 445 yards and three touchdowns, while Ezekiel Elliott picked up 69 yards on 17 carries. For the Pats, Mac Jones finished 15 of 21 for 229 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
Meanwhile, Trevon Diggs tied Rod Woodson with the most interceptions in NFL history through the first six games of a season with seven.
