The Dallas Cowboys beat the Chicago Bears in week three by a score of 31-17 to win their first game at home in over a year. The offense seemed to click for the majority of the game as the Cowboys came away with points on their first four possessions. They jumped out to a 24-3 halftime lead and held on in the second half to win the game.

Things did not look good on the Cowboys’ first possession as it looked like Dez Bryant sustained a major injury and had to go back to the locker room. Luckily, he was able to get back on the field later in the first quarter but he did look a bit hobbled. In the fourth quarter, Bryant caught his first touchdown of the year on a deep 17 yard slant towards the middle of the field.

Dak Prescott proved once again that he is a solid quarterback and is able to compete at a high level. Prescott threw his first touchdown of the year to Bryant and was also able to get a rushing touchdown from one yard out. Prescott has yet to turn over the ball and is looking more and more like the biggest steal of the draft.

Ezekiel Elliott finally was able to showcase why he should be considered one of the top running backs in the league. Elliott ran the ball 30 times for 140 yards and had 20 yards receiving. Although he was not able to score a touchdown for the third straight game, he is getting better each and every game.

The Cowboys look for their third straight win as they go on the road week four to take on the 1-2 San Francisco 49ers.
