Dallas Cowboys down Ravens in NFL

Press AssociationPress Association 21/11/2016

The Dallas Cowboys rolled to a franchise-record ninth straight win in the NFL as quarterback Dak Prescott led them to a 27-17 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

With veteran Tony Romo serving as his back-up for the first time in his return from injury, Prescott confirmed his place as the Cowboys' natural starter by throwing for 301 yards and three touchdowns.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott, the NFL's leading rusher, broke the Dallas rookie record of 1007 yards - set by Tony Dorsett in 1977 - as he collected 97 to go to 1102 on the season.

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, who scored two touchdowns, was glowing in his praise of Prescott.

"Like I said before, the guy's amazing," said Bryant, who had six catches for 80 yards in his first two-score game since his All-Pro season of 2014.

"We're going to follow that guy. We're going to continue to keep following that guy. The way that he adjusts and the way he handles his business, it says a lot about him."

At 9-1, the Cowboys stay two games clear of the New York Giants in the NFC East after the Giants beat the Chicago Bears 22-16.

Eli Manning threw for 227 yards and two touchdowns as the Giants recorded their fifth straight win, though it was far from straightforward as Chicago led 16-9 at the break.

The Kansas City Chiefs had their winning streak snapped at five games as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers left Arrowhead Stadium with a 19-17 win.

While Minnesota Vikings remembered what it was like to win as they beat the Arizona Cardinals 30-24, snapping a four-game losing streak which ruined their 5-0 start.

The Detroit Lions defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 26-19 while the Indianapolis Colts hung on for a 24-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans and Buffalo edged the Cincinnati Bengals 16-12.

Meanwhile, Tom Brady threw for 280 yards and four touchdowns and the New England Patriots beat San Francisco 30-17 and the Miami Dolphins downed the Los Angeles Rams 14-10.
