Cowboys vs. Colts: Defenses force four turnovers in the second half as Dallas blows up Indy

The Cowboys went 9-3 on the season after dealing with the Colts Sunday night, 54-19.

Indy gave Dallas a run for its money out of the gate, scoring 10 points on its first possession to take an early lead. The Cowboys managed to launch several touchdown drives to jump ahead, but the Colts had a chance to come into the break with a surprise lead, especially after Stefon Gilmour snatched Dak Prescott with less than three minutes to play in the second quarter. However, Matt Ryan & Co. were held to only a field goal on that possession and the veteran quarterback threw a pick on the next drive, which led to a five-game touchdown run by Dallas to go up by eight before the break.

In the second half, Indianapolis again had the first to start the scoring thanks to a 15-yard catch by Alec Pierce, but were unable to tie the game for Dallas after a two-point attempt by Paris Campbell failed. The Cowboys digested that punch and faced a 75-yard touchdown drive. At that point, the defense did the rest, forcing four consecutive Indianapolis turnovers to put the game away.

Dak Prescott completed 20 of his 30 passes for 170 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Tony Pollard and Michael Gallup each found the end zone twice. On the other hand, Matt Ryan was 21 of 37 passes for 233 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.

From here, Dallas will roam around AT&T Stadium and wait for the Houston Texans to take on the Week 14 team on Sunday. As for the Colts, they will have a bye in Week 14 before going on the road to take on the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15 to start the final stretch of the 2022 regular season.
