It took overtime and some heroics from Dak Prescott, but the Cowboys survived a late-game comeback by the Patriots on Sunday to notch their fifth straight win, 35-29 in overtime.
The Cowboys had another dominant offensive outing, totaling 567 yards, including 455 passing from Prescott. It was their second consecutive game with more than 500 yards of offense.Prescott targeted nine different receivers, most prominently CeeDee Lamb, who hauled in nine catches for 149 yards and two touchdowns, including the OT game-winner. Tight end Blake Jarwin caught Prescott’s other score.
Dallas played well on defense, forcing two turnovers and sacking Mac Jones twice. One of the turnovers was a fourth-quarter pick-six by cornerback Trevon Diggs, who expanded his league lead in interceptions.

Not everything was so great for Dallas, though. It converted on just 3 of 13 third-down attempts and was penalized 12 times for 115 yards.
New England was less dominant but made timely plays. The most notable one was a 75-yard strike from Jones to Kendrick Bourne immediately following Diggs’ pick-six to give New England a 29-26 lead. The Patriots were bailed out by Dallas’ numerous penalties, the defense’s stops on third and fourth down and a missed field goal kick by Greg Zuerlein.
Jones completed 15 of 21 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns, with one interception. Damien Harris (18 carries, 101 yards) and Rhamondre Stevenson (five carries, 23 yards) added rushing touchdowns for New England.
