Cowboys Slam Redskins
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have finally demonstrated that they can win without suspended running back Ezekiel Elliott, although the mistake-prone Redskins certainly helped.
The Cowboys' offense had been sputtering until Dak Prescott and former Redskin Alfred Morris led them to a 38-14 thrashing of Washington.
Prescott threw for two touchdowns, including a 13-yard toss to Dez Bryant that sparked the Cowboys' 21-point fourth quarter. It was Bryant's 72nd career TD reception with Dallas, breaking the franchise record set by Bob Hayes.
Morris finished with 127 yards rushing and scored on a one-yard plunge to put Dallas ahead 31-14 with 4:59 remaining.
The 6-6 Cowboys started quickly thanks to three first-half turnovers and four overall by the 5-7 Redskins. Dallas also outscored Washington 21-7 over the last two quarters after being outscored 72-6 in the second half of their first three games without Elliott.
Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins threw two interceptions and lost a fumble while throwing two touchdown passes. Cousins threw for 251 yards, but the Redskins managed just 56 on 19 carries.
