The Dallas Cowboys came strong Monday night.
Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and the defense were on top of their game and pounded the Philadelphia Eagles, 41-21. The blowout victory was a message back at their NFC East rivals after Eagles coach Nick Sirianni wore a “Beat Dallas” T-shirt in the days leading up to the game in an attempt to inspire his team.

The Cowboys turned Sirianni’s fashion choice into bulletin board material.
Prescott was 21-for-26 with 238 passing yards and three touchdowns. He had an earlier turnover in the first quarter but was able to recover to put on a nice performance.
Elliott, who had been on the receiving end of some criticism over his slow start to the season, had 95 rushing yards on 17 carries with two touchdowns. Dalton Schultz led the team with six catches for 80 yards and two touchdowns. Cedrick Wilson had the other touchdown catch in the game.
