James Cook and the Bills are currently leading the Cowboys by a score of 21-3 at the halftime break.
The Bills and Cowboys are swapping personal fouls in what is shaping up to be one of the more physically taxing games of the season. These two teams are not exchanging touchdowns.
During the first half, the Bills were in complete control of the game, and they went into the locker room with a 21-3 lead.
A total of 146 of the Bills’ 210 yards have been gained through the ground. On the other hand, Ty Johnson has four for 25 and Josh Allen has five for 15, while James Cook has 15 carries for 104 yards. Throughout the entire season, the Cowboys had not allowed a single rusher to accumulate 100 yards.
Although Allen has completed five of eleven passes, he has only thrown for 73 yards. Cook, who is also the leading receiver for the squad with 42 yards on two catches, became the recipient of a touchdown pass that he threw from 18 yards out.
There was a touchdown scored by Latavius Murray on a run of two yards, and Allen scored a touchdown on a quarterback sneak of one yard.
During the 11-play, 76-yard scoring drive that the Bills had, which culminated in Allen’s quarterback sneak, Stefon Diggs fumbled on a hit by Stephon Gilmore, which Dallas safety Donovan Wilson recovered. There was a lapse in policy. Due of the speed with which the Bills arrived at the line, the Cowboys were unable to view a replay in order to contest the call.
The Cowboys have only 89 yards, and Dak Prescott, who is a candidate for MVP, has only completed six of thirteen passes for 43 yards. On seven carries, Tony Pollard has accumulated 33 yards of rushing, and CeeDee Lamb has accumulated 33 yards of receiving on three catches.
Linebacker Damone Clark, right lineman Zack Martin (quad), and Wilson all departed the game with injuries, with Clark returning just before the halftime break. Wilson also exited the game with an injury.
As the Buffalo Bills cruised to a 31-10 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Josh Allen played the part of a contented spectator by standing back and watching James Cook go around the field in all directions, including left, right, and up the middle.
Allen remarked, “I felt like the kid who didn’t do anything in a class project but got an A,” after he threw for just 94 yards, with one touchdown passing and one touchdown rushing. He also had a touchdown pass by himself. “However, I will succeed in doing this ten times out of ten, dude. Simply said, keep going.”
Due to the fact that Allen started the week with 35 total touchdowns and Dak Prescott was first in throwing touchdowns with 28, the game that was supposed to be a duel between two of the highest-scoring quarterbacks in the NFL turned into a stampede for the Bills. While the Cowboys’ five-game winning streak was broken, Cook finished with 179 yards rushing and 221 yards from scrimmage, both of which were career bests. He also scored on a catch that went for 18 yards and a run that went for 24 yards.
Cook, who is in his second year of playing and is the younger brother of Dalvin Cook, a running back with the New York Jets, gave the following statement: “I just let it rip when I get my opportunity.” They were opening it up, and I was hitting it. My offensive linemen were doing it. “Coming up with that rhythm.”
The Buffalo Bills (8-6) won consecutive games for the first time since their three-game winning run came to an end on October 1. They also gained ground in the AFC playoff chase, moving one game clear of Denver and Pittsburgh.
After suffering defeats at the hands of Green Bay and Atlanta on Sunday and Detroit’s victory over Denver on Saturday, the Cowboys (10-4) were able to secure their third consecutive game in the playoffs before the game ever began. Nevertheless, Dallas slid down a game behind San Francisco, who is the greatest team in the National Football Conference.
The Buffalo Bills carried for 266 yards, Dallas had the ball for ten minutes longer than Buffalo, and Buffalo had 28 first downs to the Cowboys’ 14 first downs.
The highest-scoring offense in the National Football League was only able to score a field goal in the first 57 minutes of the game. The Cowboys have a perfect record at home, where they have outscored their opponents 279-108, while they have a record of 3-4 away from home, where they have been outscored 156-152.
“There is a void. This is a constituent of my message. According to the coach, Mike McCarthy, “We play so well at home, and there is just too big of a gap in our games that we play away from home.” “We are aware of a certain fact. There is a lengthy journey back home, during which we will continue to discuss and ponder about (it).
Following a victory over Philadelphia by a score of 33-13, Dallas will be playing two of its next three games away from home.
The Cowboys offensive finished with 195 yards, which was a season low, while the Bills played hold-away by running the ball in the steady rain. This caused the Cowboys offense to be derailed.
They continued to control the ball, control possession, and kill the clock when they attacked us and took control of the situation. Additionally, we did not convert on our third downs, which is something that we had been very good at throughout the entire season,” added Prescott.
“We have been successful in winning the games by doing it. Therefore, they were able to outperform us in the formula.
Prescott was only able to complete 21 of 34 passes for 134 yards and one interception thanks to Buffalo’s injury-depleted defense, which was missing two more regulars in the form of edge rusher A.J. Epenesa and safety Micah Hyde. The defense also had three sacks. The Cowboys offense, which has scored forty points or more five times so far this season, punted five times and was only able to garner eight first downs until gaining six on its final drive.
For the first five possessions of the Bills, four of them lasted for more than four minutes and forty seconds.
Latavius Murray kicked off Buffalo’s opening drive, which consisted of 12 plays and 75 yards, with a run of 2 yards. Cook’s touchdown catch of 18 yards on the Bills’ third drive gave them a 14-0 lead. The play was prolonged after Sam Williams was called for roughing Bills punter Sam Martin, which resulted in the receiver receiving a penalty.
After the Bills’ first drive of the third quarter, which lasted for 8 minutes and 22 seconds and culminated with Tyle Bass making a field goal from 23 yards out to put Buffalo ahead by a score of 24-3, the game was virtually over.
The 20 first downs that Buffalo gained through running matched for the second highest in the history of the team and were the most since 1996. Cook’s rushing total was the most for a Bills player since Fred Jackson’s 212 yards in a season-ending victory over Indianapolis in 2009. Cook’s total was the highest since Jackson’s success.
The Bills, coming off a 20-17 victory at Kansas City, are trying to secure their fifth straight playoff berth and stay in contention for a fourth consecutive AFC East title.
“It was kind of all systems go today,” center Mitch Morse said. “We still have an uphill battle, but this is a great first step.”
Cowboys: RG Zack Martin did not return after hurting his quadriceps in the first quarter. McCarthy said Martin told him he’s going to be OK.
