Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott: The rookie bounced back from a slow start to finish 27-of-36 passing for 301 yards, three touchdowns and a 127.2 passer rating. He added two carries for 16 yards.

Cowboys offensive line: Against the league’s No. 1 defense, Dallas finished with 417 total yards and 27 first downs. After starting the game 1 of 4 on third down, the Cowboys finished 7 of 12.

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant: After attending his father’s funeral Saturday, the veteran had six catches for 80 yards, including touchdowns of 4 and 13 yards. “It’s been a challenging week for him, and he’s done a great job maintaining his focus,” coach Jason Garrett said.

Cowboys safety Byron Jones: For the second consecutive week, the second-year pro led the team in tackles with eight. Jack Crawford’s sack and tackle for loss also is worth mentioning.

Ravens receiver Steve Smith Sr.: The ever-confident Smith had eight catches for 99 yards, including a 5-yard TD. He became the 14th player with 1,000 career catches and now has 1,005 in his career.
