That’s more like it.
The Dallas Cowboys’ offense came out like gangbusters Sunday afternoon against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Cowboys took a 17-0 into halftime after Dak Prescott completed 13 of 18 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 53 yards and a score on nine carries to lead the charge.
Prescott ran for a 17-yard touchdown to give the Cowboys a 10-0 late in the first quarter. He connected for a 17-yard scoring pass with Cole Beasley early in the second quarter to push the lead to 17-0. Beasley leads the receivers with six receptions for 79 yards. Beasley caught a six-yard touchdown pass with 41 seconds left in the half to push the lead to 24-0. The score capped a 16-play, 78-yard drive for Dallas.
David Irving made his season debut and quickly was a factor on the defensive line. Irving had one of four quarterback hurries by the Cowboys. Maliek Collins had a sack and Tyrone Crawford and Antwaun Woods combined for a sack.
