ARLINGTON, Texas – Dak Prescott threw for 345 yards and two touchdowns and the Dallas Cowboys blocked a two-point conversion by the Detroit Lions with 23 seconds left to win 20-19 on Saturday.
The Lions made three attempts for the crucial conversion after an 11-yard touchdown run from Amon-Ra St. Brown.
On first down, Jared Goff found offensive lineman Taylor Decker in the end zone, but the Lions were penalized. The interception was then overturned due to a Cowboys penalty, and then an incomplete pass from Goff to Josh Reynolds ended the suspense.
Thus, the Cowboys extended their streak to 16 wins in front of their home fans.
CeeDee Lamb scored a 92-yard touchdown. This was the second longest pass in Cowboys history after Don Meredith's 95-yard pass to Bob Hayes in 1966.
The Cowboys took a 17-13 lead when Brandin Cooks caught a touchdown pass from Prescott and the Cowboys increased their lead with a Brandon Oubre field goal. The latter set a record by making his first 35 career field goal attempts.
Goff's second interception of the game set up the field goal, but the quarterback then led a nine-play, 75-yard offensive drive for a St. Brown's touchdown.
Goff finished the game with 19 completions on 34 attempts, 271 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
