Dallas comes up big in fourth quarter

After a poor performance last week against the 49ers, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott collected 272 yards and a touchdown as they defeated the Los Angeles Chargers 20-17.

In addition to completing 21 of 30 passes, Prescott had seven carries for 40 yards and a rushing touchdown. The 2-yard touchdown pass he threw to Brandin Cooks with 11:19 remaining in the game made him the 30th quarterback in NFL history to throw at least one touchdown pass against 31 or more opponents. This gave the Cowboys a 17-10 lead.

Justin Herbert's 1-yard touchdown pass to Gerald Everett tied the game at 17 with 7:11 remaining. Brandon Aubrey made two field goals, including a 39-yarder with 2:19 remaining, to give the Cowboys the lead. It was the Chargers' last chance to put the game into overtime, but Stephon Gilmore picked off Herbert at the LA 33-yard line with 1:22 left to seal the victory. Herbert had previously been sacked by Micah Parsons for an eight-yard loss a play before Gilmore's pick.

CeeDee had seven receptions for 117 yards. He was heavily involved in the discussion, and he did not disappoint. Tony Pollard contributed 110 total scrimmage yards to the offense.
