If the offense continues to play like that, Dallas is a legit contender

The Dallas Cowboys offense on Sunday finally looked like the offense we all thought we would see coming into the season.

The Dallas Cowboys beat the Chicago Bears 49-29 and it didn’t feel that close.

In his second game back from the thumb injury, Dak Prescott looked like he had shaken all the rust off. He was a very efficient 21 of 27 for 250 yards and 2 scores. He also had another 34 yards and a TD on the ground. The one interception he threw made things interesting for a minute.

With Zeke out with that knee injury, Tony Pollard showed he can be the lead runner – going for 131 yards and THREE touchdowns!

While Chicago dominated time of possession (36:04 to 23:56), the Cowboys had 442 yards of total offense. They were 9 of 11 on third down and they only committed six penalties.

The defense did struggle against the run and the 29 points allowed was a season high, but ultimately, the defense made key stops when it mattered most and Micah Parsons continues to make unbelievable plays.

We keep hearing the term complementary football and Sunday was a great display of it. While Dak was out, the Cooper Rush offense relied on the defense.

The defense has shown what they can do. If this is the offense we see the rest of the way, the Cowboys are legit contenders.
