Dak Prescott, Cowboys Beat Kirk Cousins, Redskins Behind Ezekiel Elliott's 2 TDs

Dak Prescott, Cowboys Beat Kirk Cousins, Redskins Behind Ezekiel Elliott's 2 TDs”

If he isn't, the Dallas Cowboys will have massive shoes to fill.

Rain is forecasted for Sunday's Dallas Cowboys versus Washington Redskins showdown.

In New York on Monday, a judge will determine if star running back Ezekiel Elliott will be allowed to play football for the Cowboys this season under a preliminary injunction.

Unable to unlock consistent big plays from their supposed big-play receivers seven games into the season is problematic. If the NFL's suspension is upheld, Elliott will in all likelihood miss the next six games. Washington capitalized on an uncharacteristic Elliott turnover to score first on a 38-yard field goal, just 1:39 in the game.

The Redskins would take advantage of the penalty, highlighted by a Ryan Kerrigan sack on first down, to hold the Cowboys to just a field goal.

The Redskins would go for it on 4-and-10, and while Cousins' attempt into the end zone was incomplete Washington would move down the one-yard line on a pass interference call. He was also limited to 16 yards rushing on three carries.

The Cowboys scored 19 unanswered points after the blocked field goal, controlling the game for much of the second half.

Defensively, Dallas sacked Redskins' quarterback Kirk Cousins four times. The pick came on Washington's last drive on a pass tipped at the line of scrimmage, which Byron Jones returned 21 yards for a touchdown. Elliott nearly torched the Redskins for another touchdown, only to see a 27-yard run called back for holding.

Washington continued to work the ball up the field, as Cousins connected with both Crowder and Thompson once again.

Elliott dominated in the ground game, even having multiple positive gains - including a 26-yard touchdown - nullified by penalty. Although the 22-year-old voiced confidence in fellow running backs Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden and Rod Smith, Dallas doesn't have someone else who can do what Elliott does at his level. "It's called the legal system, and it has a lot of precedent and it's made a lot of mistakes, but it's the best one there probably is in the world in my view and for us to not basically recognize that, that's a concern".

The Cowboys, with or without Elliott, will host the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday. The win improved their record to 4-3, keeping them ahead of the 3-4 'Skins and in second place in the NFC East.
