The Dallas Cowboys’ 43-3 victory over the Atlanta Falcons was completed by Dak Preston who ran four yards on fourth-and-2.
Prescott made a fake run to Elliott and then bootleg left. He was unable to throw the ball to anyone so he kept it and tucked it, running through an attempt to tackle Falcons linebacker Mykal Wade.
Prescott emerged unscathed from the play. He actually took the greatest nick on Sunday during a sideline celebration hosted by wide receiver CeeDee lamb.
Jerry Jones, the owner of 105.3 The Fan, admitted that he was a little worried about his quarterback getting physical. Prescott was unable to play in Dallas’ Week 8 victory over the Minnesota Vikings because of a calf injury.
It worries me. “We realized that the end of the year is all about standing,” Jones stated, via Jon Machota from The Athletic.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Jones and the Cowboys’ coaches let Prescott know that he must be cautious after Sunday’s play. Dallas is about enter a critical portion of its schedule.
The Cowboys are currently at 7-2 overall and could be in contention for No. The Cowboys are the No. 1 seed in NFC. They’ve got three big games in the pipeline, including Sunday against Patrick Mahomes and the 6-4 Kansas City Chiefs.
Dallas will then face the Las Vegas Raiders Thanksgiving on November 21st, followed by a Week 13 visit to New Orleans to take on the Saints in Week 13. The Cowboys will have a chance to earn homefield advantage in playoffs if they can sweep that stretch or even go 2-1.
