Cowboys Win Dak's Return, 24-6

All eyes were on the center back, as quarterback Dak Prescott returned after missing the former five games with a broken thumb on his throwing hand.

Will it show any rust? Will the Dallas cowhands offense be suitable to protest effects up a notch? Will they take care of business against a floundering Detroit Lions team?

 To call the game a thing of beauty would presumably be overselling it, as Prescott and the cowhands plodded to find a harmonious meter, especially beforehand on

But in the end, Dallas came down with a hard- fought 24- 6 palm over the Lions, which always looks good.

Not that Prescott was bad by any means. He completed 76 percent of his passes for 207 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions for an emotional113

2 passer standing. Noah Brown and Dalton Schultz, who continue to battle through injured knees, lead the platoon with five catches all, whileC.D. Lamb posted 75 entering yards.

On the ground, Tony Pollard picked up 83 rushing yards on 12 carries and Ezekiel Elliott added 57 yards and two touchdowns, his firstmulti-score game of the season.

In all, Dallas totaled 330 yards of offense. Also again, with the way the defense was playing, Prescott and company did not have to worry about doing the heavy lifting.

The cowhands didn't surrender a touchdown while allowing 10 or smaller points for the third time this season. The unit came up with five takeaways, two interceptions and three bobble reclamations on the day, all of which came in the alternate half.
