The Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 on SNF. How did they do it? Their offense has Amari Cooper to thank.
With a 27-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, Dallas Cowboys fans everywhere should be excited. Not only should they be excited about getting a much needed win over a division rival and the defending Super Bowl champs, but they should be excited about the way Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott performed.
Prescott had his second best game of the season, completing 72.2 percent of his passes for 270 yards, one TD, no INTs and a passer rating of 102.8. Prescott added nine rushing yards and one rushing TD on six carries.
Ezekiel Elliott also had his second best performance of the season by rushing for 151 yards and one TD on 19 carries. Elliott also added 36 receiving yards and one TD on six receptions.
Not only did Prescott and Elliott have good performances, but they responded in clutch situations. After being up 13-3 at the half, the Dallas Cowboys allowed the Philadelphia Eagles to come back and tie the game 13-13. Dallas soon responded with a TD, putting them up 20-13. There went Carson Wentz again, leading his team to another TD, tying the game 20-20.
In most games this season, the Dallas offense would have done something incredibly wrong and given the ball back to the other team with good field position. Instead, the Dallas Cowboys drove down the field once again, scoring another TD to put them up 27-20 with about three minutes left.
How was their offense so successful? What changed?
