W, 31-21 @ Redskins
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is watching the dollar signs pile up for quarterback Dak Prescott, especially after he tossed for 269 yards, three touchdowns against an interception, while adding 69 yards rushing, too.
But that’s a problem for another time, and Jones’ other high-profile investment, running back Ezekiel Elliott, also lived up to his new deal with 111 rush yards and a touchdown.
Dallas did almost everything right in this game, holding the Redskins to a 2-of-9 mark on third downs, while allowing just 2.8 yards per play.
The Cowboys are emerging as a legitimate Super Bowl contender this season, and the final score in Washington isn’t of how well Dallas played overall. Sure, the Redskins kept things close into the third quarter and made things interesting late. But the Cowboys essentially dominated both sides of the ball.
Who cares about long-term contracts? That’s a problem for Jones and Co. at another time.
