There were a handful of plays on Sunday that were more important than others for the Cowboys
So much for a trap game. The Cowboys went on the road for an early kickoff against a Panthers team that desperately needed to play well and came away with a pretty strong 33-10 victory. The Cowboys weren’t as dominant as they had been in recent weeks, but they still managed to cover a fairly large point spread in the win.
Dallas still won in a blowout, but it took a little more work to get there than it did a week ago. As such, these five plays were crucial in the Cowboys wrapping this one up.
Micah Parsons sacks Bryce Young on third down
Early on it looked like this game might actually be close. After the Cowboys offense started with a three-and-out, the Panthers started putting together an extended drive. Bryce Young hit Adam Thielen on two different third downs to move the chains.
