The Dallas Cowboys dominated the New York Jets for the second consecutive week, winning 30-10 in Arlington, Texas on September 17. Dak Prescott threw two touchdown passes and Brandon Aubrey kicked five field goals to secure the victory. Prescott had an impressive performance, completing 31 of 38 passes for 255 yards. The Cowboys improved to 2-0 after their 40-0 win against the Giants in Week 1. Despite missing quarterback Aaron Rodgers due to an Achilles injury, the Jets couldn’t keep up with Dallas. Zach Wilson, the Jets’ quarterback, completed 12 of 27 passes for 170 yards, with a touchdown and three interceptions. However, he did manage to connect with Garrett Wilson for a 68-yard touchdown, the first score against the Cowboys in six quarters. The Jets’ momentum was short-lived as Prescott responded with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Luke Schoonmaker, followed by a successful 2-point conversion run by Tony Pollard. The first half ended with a 34-yard field goal by Austin Seibert, bringing the score to 18-10 in favor of the Cowboys. In the second half, Dallas extended their lead with Aubrey’s field goals from 21, 55, 26, and 30 yards, in addition to his 35-yarder in the second quarter. Aubrey’s five field goals made him the first Cowboy to achieve this feat since Dan Bailey in 2013. Prescott started the game strong, throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Jake Ferguson, capping off a 12-play, 75-yard drive. Prescott’s connection with CeeDee Lamb was particularly impressive, as Lamb caught 11 passes on 13 targets for 143 yards. The Cowboys’ performance in the first two games of the season is historic, as they became only the third team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 to score at least 70 points while holding their opponents to 10 or fewer.
