Dak Prescott Solidified His Starting Role With 8th Straight Win Against The Steelers

If there were still any doubts that Tony Romo might take Dak Prescott’s starting job away once he was healthy, after yesterday’s game, there shouldn’t be anymore.

Dak looked a bit shaky early on in the game, after losing a fumble that led to a Steeler’s touchdown. The Cowboys found themselves in an early 12-3 hole.

But Dak along with his fellow rookie running back, Ezekiel Elliott, showed that they belonged in the NFL. They were able to connect on a screen pass that led to an 83 yard touchdown, not too shabby for Zeke’s first receiving touchdown of his career.

The game featured the most lead changes in the league this season with 7. Despite Roethlisberger throwing for 408 yards and 3 touchdowns, the Cowboys were able to take home the win with Dak throwing over 300 yards and 2 touchdowns and Elliott totaling 209 scrimmage yards and 3 touchdowns, including the game winning touchdown late in the 4th quarter.

The win gave the Cowboys their 8th straight win, tying a franchise record dating back to 1977. Jerry Jones has already tentatively stated that Tony Romo, if active this week, will serve as the backup to Dak.

The Cowboys 8th win came just 24 hours after their star wide receiver, Dez Bryant, received word that his father had passed away. Bryant ended the game with 116 yards and a touchdown.
