The Dallas Cowboys improved their record to 5-3 Sunday afternoon with an impressive 28-17 win against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Cowboys have now won three straight games since losing back to back games without Sean Lee. The Cowboys will put their winning streak on the line when they travel to the 4-4 Atlanta Falcons Sunday. Unfortunately, they will not have running back Ezekiel Elliott for that matchup after his suspension was re-instated following the latest hearing Thursday afternoon.
Terrance Williams finished the game with 9 catches for 141 yards. This was Williams’ first 100 yard game since 2015. His most impressive play to me was his play late in the game when the Cowboys were on the verge of putting the game away and he caught a ball and stayed in bounds to insure the clock continued to run.
Jeff Heath has been the whipping boy for the Dallas Cowboys this year. He was the starting safety coming into the season and has not performed well for the most part. However, on Sunday he managed to get his first interception of the season off of Alex Smith, who had not thrown an interception all season.
Taco is another guy that has gotten a lot of heat in just his rookie season. When you are the teams first round pick, you are expected to come in right away and perform and become a household name, no matter how unrealistic that may be. To Tacos credit, he has continued to work and play hard and that hard work paid off and resulted in his first sack of his NFL career on Sunday.
Tyron has battled a back injury the majority of the past two seasons and now you can add a groin injury. Tyron is not expected to do much this week in practice and is questionable at best for Sunday’s game in Atlanta. It is possible Dak will have to go without his star running back and his left tackle along with Dez Bryant in Atlanta.
Byron Jones didn’t have the best day Sunday afternoon. He collected a pair of personal foul penalties right before the first half ended that contributed to the Cowboys inexcusably giving up a touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill as time expired in the second quarter. Then Jones came back out after halftime and got beat for a touchdown by Travis Kelce.
Because that play before halftime was so bad, someone has to be called out for it. That player is Orlando Scandrick. The Cowboys lined up seven guys at or near the goal line and trusted that one of the seven guys would be able to make the tackle. I fault Scandrick because he had a chance to attack Hill and make the play but instead sat and waited for the play to develop and Hill ended up running right by him.
