Nice response by the defense after the interception, forcing a three and out. Jourdan Lewis could have had an interception on the third-down pass, which could have given the Cowboys the ball in plus territory.

Dez Bryant didn't really help Dak Prescott on that interception there. The pass was a little high but Bryant could have done more to help Prescott. That's just the third interception of the season for Oakland.

Stephen Jones to 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on the impending return of Ezekiel Elliott from suspension: “I know Zeke when he left for the suspension his goal was to get in much better shape and certainly get his mind right. He knows he's made some bad decision and I know he wants to be one of the greats in the NFL and you can't do that if you're not focused on your game, both on and off the field.”

Dak Prescott warmed up with a glove on his left hand, like he did a week ago in New York when temperatures were much colder than tonight in Oakland.
