The Dallas Cowboys finished 12-4 in 2014, and went 1-1 in the playoffs.
After giving up only 171 rushing yards in the first four games, the Packers gave up 191 yards Sunday, including 157 to rookie Ezekiel Elliott, the NFL's leading rusher. As the Cowboys' defense repeatedly capitalized on Green Bay's mistakes, Prescott captained an offense that, without Dez Bryant, churned up close to 200 yards on the ground and spread the ball among six receivers.
"Frankly, we need to get Ty the ball", McCarthy said. Not only will we get an idea of where Dak is, we'll get an idea of just where this team is.
Hey! Speaking of Prescott and Zeke, here are 11 things we learned about the Dallas Cowboys after stomping all over the Cincinnati Bengals and the Packers.
"The media spinned it to where everything was always great with his play, but there was always something wrong with the receiving end of the play if there was an issue". He threw just under 400 yards and had three touchdowns as well. He also fumbled twice (lost one), which also cost Dallas points, but did not really threaten the outcome, given how well the defense played.
Jerry Jones favors Tony Romo but the nostalgia tied up to that should be measured on where the Dallas Cowboys are right now.
The Cowboys have one practice this week before parting for the bye week.
Police report almost 60 clown-related incidents in three days

"This is his team".
"This is Tony's team", Prescott said, "and I'm just here to help my team win each and every game that I can".
"I mean four turnovers is totally unacceptable". It's a play he has to make if he wants receive more playing time. "On the other hand, we've got an opportunity in Dak to go out there and win these football games, which he is doing".
BOO BIRDS: Even Rodgers wasn't immune from the uncharacteristic boos from Packers fans at times directed at the struggling offense.
"Look, we're upset, they're upset, it's part of it", he said of the booing. It's not the first time. Rodgers overthrew open receiver Randall Cobb in the back of the end zone early in the fourth quarter, and the Packers had to settle for one of Mason Crosby's three field goals.
He did finally throw a pick when Packers safety Morgan Burnett made a diving interception late in the third quarter to snap Prescott's streak at 176 attempts. The Mississippi State product has won over the Cowboys' locker room while winning five of his first-six career starts breaking Tom Brady's National Football League record for most consecutive passing attempts without an interception in the process. The bad news is that the game is Thursday.
This season, color-rush uniforms are mandatory, and rather than go all green with the current home jersey or all gold with the regular trousers, the Packers are going with all white. The Packers had been allowing 42.8 yards per game entering Sunday, while Dallas was averaging a league-best 155.2 yards per game. The good news for him is that the Packers play the Chicago Bears next. Green Bay's top three of Sam Shields (concussion), Damarious Randall (groin) and Quinten Rollins (groin) are all battling injuries.
