In overtime, Dak Prescott fired a 35-yard touchdown throw to CeeDee Lamb, and the Dallas Cowboys overcame the New England Patriots 35-29, their first victory over Bill Belichick's team.
After throwing a 35-yard touchdown pass to CeeDee Lamb in overtime to beat the New England Patriots 35-29 on Sunday, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott felt soreness in his right calf.
It wasn't the perfect finale, but he was willing to take it after helping Dallas survive a wild finish to beat Bill Belichick's Patriots for the first time.
"It was just a funny thing that happened." Prescott, who was wearing a walking boot to his postgame press conference, stated, "I didn't like what I felt." "Life continues to hurl punches at me, and I'm going to continue to throw punches back...." But it won't bother me at all. That I can assure you."
Dallas had not beaten New England since 1987 and had a 0-5 record versus Belichick. Cowboys (5-1) have won their last five games, their longest winning run since 2016.
The Cowboys were up 17-14 going into the fourth quarter, and that's when the games started to become interesting. In the first session, the sides exchanged five goals, three of which came in the closing two and a half minutes.
Prescott threw for 445 yards on 35 of 51 passing with three completions and one interception. On Monday, he'll have his calf soreness evaluated further. Lamb had 149 yards and two scores on nine receptions.
