The opposite happened to their counterpart Dak Prescott, who missed just six passes out of 34 attempts for a gain of 261 yards. He also threw an air throw for a touchdown.
The game was decided in the second quarter, as the Cowboys scored twice, including one from Darron Bland who, after an interception, made a 54-yard drive into the Patriots’ end zone.
The 49ers are always perfect
The San Francisco 49ers (3-0) remain perfect this season thanks to a 35-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals (1-2). This is the fourteenth consecutive victory in the regular season for the first mentioned club.
The game was close throughout, but the 49ers finally broke down their opponents in the fourth quarter, thanks to two touchdowns, including Christian McCaffrey’s second field goal of the game. The latter made a 2-yard run for a touchdown to give his club a 28-16 lead.
Note that the team’s quarterback Brock Purdy was nearly perfect through the air, completing 20 of his 21 attempts. He racked up 283 total yards.
Tensions also ran high after the match between James Conner and Talanoa Hufanga. The athletes had to be separated before the situation got too bad.
Second win for the truck
At SoFi Stadium, the Los Angeles Chargers (2-2) took over in the second quarter with two touchdowns for 17 points, en route to a 24-17 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders (1-3).
