Dallas Cowboys is a professional American football based in the Dallas-Forth worth metroplex. The cowboys compete in the national football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s national football conference (NFL) East Division.
The cowboys were 98 yards away from suffering their biggest upset loss since 1995.
With 3:20 remaining, ESPN’s football power index gave them just a 34% chance of making the match to their name, up from the 13% they had after Dak Prescott’s second interception of the match gave the Texans the ball at the Dallas 4 with 5:37 remaining and Houston up 23-20
And somehow the cowboys left AT&T Stadium On Sunday with a 27-23 win against the Texans.
On 20th of the November, the cowboys had their biggest road conquer in franchise history, defeating the Minnesota Vikings 40-3. Last week, they made a franchise-record 33 points in the fourth quarter to defeat the Indianapolis colts.
Prescott also has faith in this win could start being significant against the now 1-11-1 Texans.
This will provide us more than I think the Minnesota game or even the way we finished the last match when it is about it because we are about to play some difficult matches so we have to keep going”, he said. You got to play games like this, one-score games here in the back end against our division or whether it be the playoffs. Just for us to have that confidence and believe in one another and continue to tighten our bond is something that we Going to need”.
Difficult To Defeat
Not that they don’t want to be in a position to go through the difficulties of such a defeat. in 1995, the cowboys were a 17.5-point favorite against the Texans, the largest spread in the NFL this season, and nearly had a debilitating loss.
To pull out the win, Prescott ( 24-of-39, 284 yards, one touchdown) found a rhythm that saved him for most of the games.
He completed his first six passes on the game-winning drive, and the only incompletion was a drop by Michael Gallup in the end zone for the go-ahead score with 41 scores to play.
Prescott said he told the offense they were going to win the match after his interception because he believed in the defense. DeMarcus Lawrence dropped Rex Burkhead for a 2-yard loss at the Dallas 1 and Neville Gallimore and Anthony Barr swallowed up Jeff Driskel on fourth down after it looked like the quarter turned the wrong way on the snap.
Then the offense took over.
It was the cowboys’ first 98-yard touchdown drive since Week 5 last season against the New York Giants.
Now the 10-3, they have won double-digit games in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1995-96. they still have an opportunity to win the NFC East, even though they would need to beat the Philadephia Eagle (11-1) on Christmas eve and have the eagles lose at least one more game.
