The Dallas Cowboys found themselves in a knock-down, drag-out dogfight in the northeast on Sunday, but somehow survived. A 35-yard pass from the arm of Dak Prescott landed in the wide-open arms of CeeDee Lamb for an overtime score and a 35-29 victory.

Entering the game on a four-game winning streak, things got off on the wrong foot. A failed fourth-down conversion in their own territory led to a quick New England score and then red-zone issues flummoxed their offense two times later in the half. Thanks to gelling defensive effort, Dallas was able to escape two quick New England scores to only trail 14-10 at the half.

Things opened up in the second half, with Dallas taking the lead, losing it, regaining it on yet another Trevon Diggs Pick-6 interception,  then giving it back on the next play. Diggs was in coverage when Kendrick Bourne pulled a double-move that safety Damontae Kazee badly misplayed, giving up an immediate 75-yard response to give New England a three-point lead.

Big conversions led to a late tying field goal and overtime, and when the defense came through with a stop, Dak Prescott did what franchise quarterbacks do. He led Dallas on an 80-yard drive, the final 35 on a beautiful pass to a wide-open CeeDee Lamb for the winning score. Dallas somehow escaped the Patriots’ lair in Foxboro with a 35-29 victory.
