ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys figured they were headed to halftime with a comfortable lead after his touchdown run before a what-just-happened score from Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill, who surely will be on the short list for the play of the year in the NFL.
Dallas (5-3) overcame Hill’s 56-yard score with the clock expired going into halftime, with Ezekiel Elliott scoring the go-ahead touchdown after another reprieve from his six-game suspension in the Cowboys’ 28-17 victory over the Chiefs (6-3).
Elliott’s 2-yard plunge in the third quarter came after the Chiefs turned a 14-3 deficit into a 17-14 advantage.
Last year’s NFL rushing champion, Elliott had 93 yards and outgained 2017 rushing leader Kareem Hunt. Hunt finished with 37 yards.
