Rookie Dak Prescott continued his impressive play as the Cowboys beat the AFC perennial playoff team Cincinnati Bengals, 28-14, in a game that wasn't as close as the final score would indicate.
"Getting him there is big, and it's the bigger part of our offense", quarterback Andy Dalton said after the team's loss. In New England, LaFell became a Super Bowl Champion with the Patriots, and that Super Bowl game, the Patriots' win over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, was actually the last time LaFell had a touchdown catch, prior to Sunday.
Prescott's accuracy helped the Cowboys jump out to a 28-0 lead, and cruise to a 28-14 victory over the spiraling Bengals. He was accurate and made big plays when he needed to, and made a lot of really good decisions throughout the game to keep the drive alive, and a lot of big throws. Elliott had 64 yards in the first quarter, igniting two touchdown drives, then zipped 60 yards for a touchdown on Dallas' first play of the second half.
For the season, Prescott has completed 107 of 155 passes (69 percent) for 1,239 yards and four touchdowns. That included one for Elliott's fellow rookie, quarterback Dak Prescott. He's one of just three starting quarterbacks not to throw an interception, he's completing almost 70 percent of his throws and has a full command of the huddle and the offense. They didn't allow their first four opponents to run for very much, they didn't let anyone run into the end zone in those first four games. But the protection of Dalton was a problem.
The Bengals got behind and abandoned the run game early.
What would your Good, Bad, and Ugly be for the Cowboys against the Bengals? But Prescott extended his National Football League rookie record to 155 passes without an interception to start his career.
Archer noted the "target date" for Romo is October 30 for a potentially critical NFC East showdown with the 3-1 Philadelphia Eagles. Next week Dallas travels to Green Bay, followed by a bye.

And then you have the bonding that occurs when people at first are fascinated by, then invested in, a team that can't win it all. In case you haven't heard, Bumgarner is pretty good in these do-or-die situations. "But Jeff was just off a little bit tonight".
"I've been comfortable all year", Prescott said.
Dak Prescott's brilliant performance for the 4-1 Cowboys has fueled what some people think is a QB controversy.

The guys Dallas didn't block, Elliott handled. "We're just all happy for each other". Smith had missed just one game in the first five seasons of his career before his back tightened up late in the week before the third game against Chicago. If so, they left a mark.
Jones clarified that he did not mean for his remarks to sound like a shot at Elliott, who rushed for 134 yards and two touchdowns on just 15 carries.
For example, the still-perfect Prescott, with a rookie-record 131 passes without an interception to start his career, points to last week's rally from a two-touchdown deficit for a 24-17 win at San Francisco.
With that said, there's no legitimate reason to go back to Romo when Prescott is playing this well.
