The Dallas Cowboys faced off against the Washington Football Team on Sunday Night Football, embarrassing their NFC East rivals in a blowout, 56-14. The Cowboys were led by quarterback Dak Prescott, who became the first player in NFL history to complete touchdown passes to a running back, wide receiver, tight end, and an offensive lineman.
Prescott completed 28 of his 39 passes for 330 yards and four scores without throwing an interception. The lopsided victory secured the Cowboys a divisional title and a spot in the playoffs with two games left to be played in the NFL regular season.
Dallas faced the Washington Football Team just two weeks earlier. But that game ended up being much closer battle with a final score resulting in a 27-20 victory for the Cowboys at FedExField in North Englewood, Maryland. That win halted a four-game winning streak for Washington, who have now lost three in a row.
The Cowboys will face the 10-5 Arizona Cardinals this Sunday afternoon, the day after New Years, at AT&T Stadium. It will be the team’s final home game of the regular season as Dallas is scheduled to face their divisional rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles, on the road at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 18.
