DALLAS — Here’s one for the record books!
The Cowboys pounded their way to the team’s 9th straight win — setting a new franchise record for most wins in a row, beating Baltimore 27 to 17.
“It means we have a great team who believes in ourselves,” Dak Prescott said of the record after the game. “We’re not gonna flinch, we’re not gonna blink.”
Dak and the gang overcame a slow start to get the W, as Prescott threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns.
“We’ve been in some tough games throughout this season and no matter when we’re down or if we’re up we just keep playing and we take it one play at a time and we all believe in each other,” said Prescott.
“[Dak] always bounces back from adversity, man,” wide receiver Brice Butler said after the game. “He’s a real quarterback, he’s been doing a damn good job at playing quarterback, but he’s always going to get the team’s best shots.”
They owned the game from the 2nd quarter on, scoring on their last five drives and making sure Baltimore didn’t have enough time left to stage any sort of comeback.
“That’s how we play,” said running back Ezekiel Elliott. “Teams are going to come out, they’re going to try to stop the run, they’re going to stack the box but we’re a physical group of guys, we talk about this all the time and we wear guys down. It’s a four quarter game, it’s a long game and guys aren’t trying to get hit in the mouth for that long.”
But they won’t get to celebrate this one for long. They’re right back on this field Thursday to take on the Redskins in the Thanksgiving game. And at 9-1, they’ll look to keep feasting on every single team they face!
