Cowboys lean on defense in Prescott’s return, top Lions 24-6

Cowboys beat Raiders 31-16

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Ezekiel Elliott ran for two 1-yard touchdowns and Dak Prescott threw for a score in his return from injury while the Dallas Cowboys leaned on their defense again in a 24-6 victory over the Detroit Lions.

The Cowboys recovered Jamaal Williams’ fumble inside their 1 with a four-point lead early in the fourth quarter. Jared Goff was responsible for four other Detroit turnovers.

Prescott missed the previous five games with a fractured right thumb.

He was rusty, but the Dallas defense led the way much as it did while Cooper Rush went 4-1 as the starter in Prescott’s place. Dallas moved to 5-2 while Detroit fell to 1-5.
