Ninety-four yard drives don’t come often in the NFL.
It did on Sunday for the Dallas Cowboys.
Late in the opening quarter, Dallas covered 94 yards in nine plays for a touchdown. It was the longest scoring drive since going 95 yards at Seattle on Sept. 16, 2012.
The big play was a fourth-and-1 gamble at the Redskins’ 30 when rookie Dak Prescott threw a 28-yard completion to tight end Geoff Swaim.
