The Dallas Cowboys fail to corral the Buffalo Bills, 26-15
The Dallas Cowboys took the field on Thanksgiving to take on the Buffalo Bills. The problem for them was the Bills were better prepared.
In what some would call a must-win game for the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving, it was obvious that the team and coaches were feeling the pressure. An after playing the number one defense in the New England Patriots, the Cowboys were now facing the third-ranked defense in the Buffalo Bills and they came to play. So they knew this wasn’t going to be an easy game.
The Cowboy’s opening drive was the best they have looked in a long time. They were balanced effectively running the ball with Ezekiel Elliott and the Dak Prescott to Amari Cooper was off to a hot start. That drive ended with the Dallas Cowboys leading 7-0 on the Bills, but after that, the offense would start to struggle.
The Cowboys offense after that drive would end up turning the ball over twice on a Prescott interception and Prescott fumble and giving the Bills momentum the rest of the game.
Quarterback Josh Allen would hit former Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley for a touchdown and then on a trick play Devin Singletary would get into the endzone to make it 13-0 after the Bills missed the extra point. The Cowboys would drive down the field at the end of the half but would have their field goal tipped, and would head into halftime down 13-7.
The hits would keep on coming for the Dallas Cowboys as the Bills would continue to put points on the board while the Cowboys continued to trip over themselves. Prescott was harassed in the pocket all night long and the Cowboys seeming decided to go away from the running game which was working early in the game.
In the fourth, with the Cowboys down 26-7, the offense finally put together a drive that ended with points as Prescott would hit receiver Ventell Bryant for a touchdown and find tight end Jason Witten for a two-point conversion making it 26-15.
That would end up being your final score to a thoroughly disappointing game from the Dallas Cowboys. With the Eagles facing the Dolphins this week, it looks like the Cowboys will be tied for the division lead after this week. Next up for the Cowboys, the tough Chicago Bears defense.
