Jerry Jones: Cooper even helping surging Cowboys on defence

Jerry Jones: Cooper even helping surging Cowboys on defence

In Dallas' losses, Prescott has five interceptions.

Here's a look at the video in which Prescott evaded multiple defenders in order to run for the impressive touchdown, courtesy of the Cowboys.

"They say if you want to be a good team, you have to really start rolling in November", said Cooper, who had a Dallas Thanksgiving record with 180 yards receiving with a 40-yard touchdown as well in a 31-23 win over the Redskins. Prescott has impressed as this game progressed, and early in the fourth quarter was approaching the 300-yard passing mark.

Meanwhile, the Falcons (4-7) lost three fumbles inside the Saints 20 - something no team facing streaking New Orleans (10-1) can afford this season. Amari Cooper has also had a big game, which has certainly been the best of his time in Dallas, as he's totaled seven catches for 176 yards and two touchdowns thus far. They have since staged a three-game win streak over the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons (both were road victories, ) and now beating a Washington team most National Football League analysts (including former Dallas wide receiving sensation Michael Irving) picked to win on Thanksgiving. Dak Prescott ran for a score in both of the team's recent victories and he hasn't thrown an interception in either game. They intercepted Colt McCoy three times in the long-time Washington backup's return to Texas coming off Alex Smith's season-ending leg injury. "Losing overshadows everything. But I'll go back and watch it and try to clean up some of my mistakes that are going to help our team win".

On the 90-yarder, Cooper made the catch just outside the Dallas 30, spun out of the arms of Fabian Moreau and won the race to the pylon against former Alabama teammate Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who tried to shove him out of bounds around the 5. They'll have the benefit of the "mini-bye" on their side, having played on Thursday, so we'll see how they respond in their Monday night showdown with the Eagles in Week 13. "So we are all just playing together".

Call Jerry Jones insane, but the Cowboys owner and general manager believes those two big plays are connected. We lost the game on defense two weeks in a row.
