Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys rolled in to Cleveland on a roll, winners of 6 straight games, but they were up against a team desperate for a win. The hapless, winless Cleveland Browns were hoping to catch the Cowboys napping and steal a win. It wasn’t meant to be for the Browns as they fell to a league worse 0-9 after a 35-10 loss at home.

Prescott impressed again for the Cowboys as he was efficient, (21-27 for 247 yards) and productive (3 touchdown passes). Most importantly he had yet another turnover free game. Fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott added 92 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns. While Dez Bryant was kept quiet with only one reception, the ageless Jason Witten and Cole Beasley combined for 14 receptions and two touchdowns. Defensively, the Cowboys got four sacks lead by Maliek Collins who got to the quarterback twice.

For the Brown, Cody Kessler actually had a decent day, going 19 for 27 with 203 yards and a touchdown. The running game for the Browns was virtually non-existant as Duke Johnson Jr (5 rushes for 30 yards) and Isiah Cromwell (6 rushes for 4 yards) combined for just 34 yards on 11 carries. Terrelle Pryor Sr. had five catches for 47 yards and a touchdown.

Cleveland, which also lost 19 of 20 — also a team record — got just 28 total yards in the second half.
