Cowboys pummel Commanders 38-10

The Dallas Cowboys secure the NFC East crown with a commanding 38-10 win over division-rivals Washington.

Dak Prescott threw for 279-yards and 4-scores and Tony Pollard added 70-yards and a score on the ground as the Cowboys secured the number two seed and, potentially, two home games during the playoffs.

Cowboys looking to end playoff drought

It’s been a while since the Cowboys were a force in the playoffs, and securing the two seed feels like a big deal for this group.

“Look at last year — the way we came into this place and didn’t finish the season the way we wanted to — to where we are now,” said Prescott. “The growth. The coaching staff. The players. The accountability. The communication. The transparency. And both sides of the ball holding their own.”

“I don’t think there’s another quarterback and receiver that has put in much time as me and CeeDee have, going back into the offseason,” Prescott said. “Understanding what I expect of him. Him understanding where I’m going to put the ball. Him understanding the belief that I have in him. I’ve told you I think he’s the best receiver in the game.”

The Cowboys will host the Green Bay Packers in Dallas next weekend. “The drama of it — I’m sure you guys will love that,” former Packers head coach and now Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said.
