Rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott keep winning for the Dallas Cowboys, even with Kirk Cousins setting records for the Washington Redskins. But Dallas answered with touchdowns each time the Redskins got within a score.
"We have high expectations for ourselves on offense", Prescott said. "Whether it was a third down in the red zone again and again and again, he just played winning football for us and that's what winning quarterbacks do".
The Redskins (6-4-1) got swept by their NFC East rival, and the defending division champions fell 3½ games behind Dallas with five games left. "I never go into a game thinking I have to rush for so many yards or have so many carries", said Prescott, who had eight carries for 39 yards.
There was still over nine minutes left in the contest at the point but Washington coach Jay Gruden may have shown a crack in his psyche by going for the onside kick then and there. They have their 10th win by Thanksgiving for only the second time since 1995 - the last of their five Super Bowl championship seasons.
Dallas almost blew an 11-point halftime lead but completed a sweep of the season series with Washington with two timely fourth-quarter scoring drives capped first by Prescott and then Elliott.
Prescott got the Dallas offense off on the right foot in the first quarter, working the ball 75 yards in seven plays for the opening score.
The Redskins couldn't hit pay dirt in the first half, coming away with just two field goals despite Cousins completing 18 passes for 216 yards.

Indeed, all of this hints that it is the governments that want a modified version of Facebook and not the other way around. For now, Chinese companies can purchase Facebook ads that run in regions where the social network is not banned.
"We pulled within striking distance a couple of times, but the way Dallas was able to come back and score says a lot of how good of a football team they have and why they're leading out division", Cousins said.
"The responsibilities that have been thrown on them, they've handled it well and they're executing at in a big way at critical times throughout games".
Slay intercepted Sam Bradford's pass from the left hash across the field to help send Detroit into sole possession of first place in the NFC North. "I don't think we really view them as rookies". "They didn't want overtime". "I was a little surprised", Cousins said.
Brown took full advantage of his chances by scoring on three of his five catches and finishing with 91 yards, two short of joining Hines Ward as the only players in franchise history with four straight 1,000-yard seasons.
Those weren't the most interesting numbers to the Steelers (6-5), though. Dallas was held to 353 total yards, ending their streak of eight consecutive 400-yard games.
Luck sat out with a concussion, and Indy's first winning streak of the season ended at two games. Receiver Cole Beasley caught five passes for 56 yards and tight end Jason Witten caught three passes for 33 yards.
