The shutout loss for the Cowboys is their first such defeat since the 2003 season. Mack's rushing yard total was a career-high, and played a major role in the Cowboys' road struggles continuing. They are just 2-5 away from home and now 8-6 on the season. The Washington Redskins came away with a close win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, and are now just a game back in the division race. The Philadelphia Eagles battled the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football, and could very well be one game out as well by the end of the night.
The Colts have now won seven of their past eight games, this after losing five of their first six in Andrew Luck's first season back from injury. Their defense has stepped up in a major way as of late, allowing just 27 points over the past three games, two of those games coming against division leaders. They recorded their first shutout victory since a 27-0 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on October 19th, 2014.
Dallas could've clinched the NFC East Division with a victory, but instead, they saw their five-game winning streak come to an end. Ezekiel Elliott ran for just 87 yards on 18 carries and 41 yards on seven receptions, while Amari Cooper caught four passes for just 32 yards after a monster game in an overtime win over the Philadelphia Eagles last week. Dak Prescott threw for 206 yards on 24-of-39 throwing with an interception, and said after the game that this shutout loss "hurts."
The Cowboys will look to bounce back next week when they return home to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while the Colts will battle the New York Giants on their home field.
