The Cowboys used Ezekiel Elliott's legs and Dak Prescott's arm to get a 31-17 win against the Chicago Bears. For the first time since the 2015 opener the Cowboys won a game at AT&T Stadium. Next up are the San Francisco 49ers. Could the Cowboys get to 3-1?

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott played like a Top 5 pick tonight. Power, vision and speed through the hole. Elliott finished with 140 yards rushing on 30 carries and he also added 20 yards receiving. I thought Elliott hit the hole with much more acceleration than I saw on film in the first two weeks of the season. He showcased the ability to bounce the ball outside and find cutback lanes. He's a great fit for the Cowboys zone running schemes. Impressive night for the rookie in the Cowboys 31-17 win over the Bears.

The Dallas Cowboys have their first home win in more than a year. Thanks to three rushing touchdowns, a cool Dak Prescott and an impressive Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys beat the Chicago Bears, 31-17, to end an eight-losing streak at AT&T Stadium. Prescott has gone 99 passes without an interception and Elliott picked up the first 100-yard game of his career. The Cowboys are staring at 3-1 start with trip to San Francisco next week.

Bears TE Zach Miller up to 78 yards and two touchdowns on eight receptions (nine targets). Fantasy owners getting some late night production here.

Dak Prescott threw his first career TD pass on the slant route to Dez Bryant. But the play started with Bryant's release. He put in some work with the quick outside move to set up Bears CB Tracy Porter. That was pretty smooth. Bryant turned Porter around on that one. Cowboys up 31-10 in the fourth quarter.

Some nervous energy inside AT&T Stadium as the Cowboys carry a 24-10 lead into the fourth quarter over Chicago.

Bears get on the board in the second half with Brian Hoyer's 4th down TD pass to TE Zach Miller. An option route with Miller creating separation vs. Cowboys safety Byron Jones. Release up the field, collision the safety (which won't be called) and break outside. It's now 24-10 Cowboys in the third quarter.

As the second half begins Dez Bryant is riding the stationary bike while catching passes from punter Chris Jones. That's one way to stay active.

Alshon Jeffery fantasy owners have to hope for the Bears to take some shots during the second half. Jeffery has only one catch for 22 yards (on one target). With Chicago down 24-3, it's time for Brian Hoyer test the top of the secondary. The Bears need to generate some explosive plays in this one.

Without their Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith, the Cowboys are having no problem running the ball against Chicago. Ezekiel Elliott is the only Cowboys tailback without a touchdown but the rookie has 76 yards on 13 carries. Dak Prescott, Lance Dunbar and Alfred Morris have the Cowboys' touchdowns, giving them seven rushing scores in 10 quarters on the season. The Cowboys had eight all of last season. They lead, 24-3, at halftime.

The Cowboys offensive line is putting on a clinic up front. Can run inside zone all night. Lot of daylight there for RBs Ezekiel Elliott and Alfred Morris. Cowboys up 24-3 late in the second quarter after Morris' touchdown run.
