Dallas Cowboys keep Detroit Lions waiting with 42-21 rout
Dec 27 2016 by Dustin Murphy
There's risk to that approach, as the Cowboys have risky weapons in the passing game and Prescott is coming off one of his best performances of the season. Tonight the Detroit Lions travel deep into the heart of Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas.
Part of the reason the past three weeks have been so hard for Redskins fans is that they have had to cheer on the Dallas Cowboys.
The Lions (9-6) were the team trying to lock up a playoff berth, but they couldn't keep up after halftime with Dallas (13-2), which had all of its stars on display.
He also set a franchise record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback on a wide-open 2-yarder up the middle on a draw.
It's just one of many philanthropic efforts Stafford and his wife have undertaken in recent years, including the $1 million pledge through his Score7 Charitable Foundation to help renovate what is now the S.A.Y Detroit Play Center at Lipke Park. But their greatest chance comes from the fact that they really need and want this win. It could also be Atlanta or Detroit.
Prescott tied Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger (2004) for the most wins by a rookie quarterback in the Super Bowl era with 13. In 7 career home games, is averaging 110.6 rush yards per game & has 6 TDs.WR DEZ BRYANT has 5 TD catches in 3 career meetings. "But for the season so far, I feel like I haven't had too many downs". Stafford's busted up finger should be in better condition, and they won't be in the freezing rain that they had to play in last week.
The Lions were in 2nd and 31 after a holding penalty on Zach Zenner and a sack put them there. Since entering National Football League in 2003, WR ANQUAN BOLDIN ranks 3rd with 1,067 receptions & 13,689 rec. yards.DE KERRY HYDER has 6 sacks in past 7 on road. Prater split the uprights, and the score was tied once again, 14-14. That's because Detroit's Johnson Bademosi interfered to the best of his ability, leaving Bryant only a left arm to work with.
"I like that they have young players that are showing their talents and show that the Dallas Cowboys have still got it", she added. Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball just 12 times for 80 yards, scoring two touchdowns. He leads Detroit with 119 tackles. Bailey nailed the extra point, and the game was tied for the third time in the half at 21-21. Of course, because Dez Bryant had the ball in his hands, the Lions' defense bit on the reverse and started to run towards the ball.
Brady has been phenomenal, with 25 touchdown passes and two interceptions, yet he missed four games to a suspension. Bryant's third-quarter touchdown pass traveled 23.4 yards of raw distance across the field and went over 10-plus yards in the air into the end zone. Bailey's extra point made it 35-21.
On first-and-goal from the Detroit 10 yard line, Bryant took a pitch going to his left.
