The Dallas Cowboys worked their way back into the win column this past week. Yes, the victory was achieved during their week of practice where the players were none too happy with their performance against the Denver Broncos in Week 9. The Atlanta Falcons were in the wrong place at the wrong time and found themselves on the receiving end of a 40 burger that went down easy for win-hungry Cowboys.

Dallas started off quickly, scoring on their first possession, then floored the pedal in the second quarter, scoring 29 straight points to tuck the game away at halftime. They barely broke a second-half sweat in winning 43-3.

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy has been on the hot seat pretty much since 2020 went awry, but he should have built a lot of leeway with Dallas’ 6-1 start to the season. However his decision making was questioned yet again as Dallas fell flat for the first time all year. However, he orchestrated the most chest-beating bounce back that could be imagined, a thorough and absolute beat down of a conference opponent which entering the game was holding down a playoff spot.

Here’s how it all went down.
