Cowboys Dominate Panthers in second half, move to 7-3


The Dallas Cowboys are back in the win column, taking down the Carolina Panthers 33-10 on the road at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, and moving to 7-3 on the season.

And thanks to a big performance from the Cowboys defense, it was arguably their most dominant road performance of the season for Dallas.

Things got started early for the Cowboys, with quarterback Dak Prescott guiding the offense on a 10-play 83-yard touchdown drive to take their first lead of the day.

A couple of drives later, Dallas was back on the board again, scoring a touchdown just before the end of the first half on a Prescott to CeeDee Lamb connection, taking a 17-3 lead into the locker room at halftime.

Then, just when it seemed like Carolina was about to make it a game, the Cowboys shut the door, scoring 13 points in 10 seconds.

The first TD came on a tough run from Tony Pollard, while the second came on a Daron Bland pick six - a touchdown that tied the NFL record for interceptions returned for a score in a single season.

And as good as the offense was for Dallas, it was the defense that stole the headlines, with the Cowboys sacking Carolina QB Bryce Young seven times for 47 yards, and forcing two turnovers including the pick six.

Following the win, the Cowboys move to 7-3 on the season, moving them two games behind the Philadelphia Eagles - who face off with the Chiefs on Monday Night Football - for the NFC East lead.

Dallas will return home for their next game of the season, where they welcome the Washington Commanders to AT&T Stadium on Thanksgiving Day.
