Dalton, Bengals take losing record into Brady's home opener

Oct 11, 2016, 01:48

"Some good fortune goes into that", Prescott said. This was a concern for the Cowboy defense coming into the game and was a big component on why the Bengals were favorited on the road.

The Cowboys are now 3-1 on the season and 3-1 against the spread following a 24-17 win at San Francisco last week.

Elliott put up 138 yards and a touchdown on the ground, and caught one pass for 19 yards against the 49ers. Like the previous two drives, Dallas picked apart the stout Bengals defense - eight plays, 80 yards - and Prescott punctuated it with a 14-yard pass to Cole Beasley to take a 21-0 lead.

Andy Dalton has quarterbacked the Bengals to five straight postseasons, and A.J. Green is among the NFL's three most-feared receivers. The 2011 second-round draft pick was visiting the Cowboys for the first time for a regular-season game since leading the Horned Frogs to an undefeated 2010 season and Rose Bowl victory. Besides four sacks, Dalton was hurried nine times while going 29 of 41 for 269 yards with two touchdowns to Brandon LaFell. He also ran for a 5-yard score early in the second quarter.

The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 28-14 at home on Sunday. Dallas was 1-13 without Romo in the three seasons before Mississippi State's winningest quarterback showed up. Whatever's the best way for us to score. Check the scoreboard above and click on the stats link.

No longer are the Dallas Cowboys helpless without Tony Romo.

Dak Prescott sported a pastel bow tie, a natty suit and a confident smile as he emerged from the Dallas Cowboy locker room.

But those Cowboys looked nothing like these Cowboys.

Elliott regained the National Football League rushing lead after racking up 134 yards on 15 carries and two touchdowns, including a season-long 60-yard scoring burst through the middle early in the third quarter to make it 28-0. "I will tell you this is a wonderful position, if you're in my shoes, to be in", Jones said. "We have a challenge now to get back to playing our way".

The afternoon was far less successful for the Bengals, who dropped to 2-3 after their third loss in four games.

The same injury dilemma that plagued the Dallas Cowboys last season is back to haunt them again in their new campaign this 2016.

But when Romo's ready, Romo plays. Relaxed, hopeful, aware of a loaded roster that starts with a dominant offensive line that was all the more improved today with the return of tackle Tyron Smith. "It's not anything that I think about going into the game". "I still don't think this game was good enough". Rookie Dak Prescott has led the Cowboys (4-1) to four straight wins after they went 1-11 without Romo last season.
