Game Notes
The running game was working, and the offensive line performed well, but this game is a microcosm of everything that is wrong with Dak Prescott, the coaching staff, and the Cowboys ownership.

Game Notes on Offense
Prescott was terrible in clutch situations, which he frequently is, and the Cowboys game plan simply didn't work. They had a lot of success early running the ball and should have stayed with it longer.

Play of the Game
There were many for the Bills. When Maher's field goal was blocked it sent a signal that the Bills were fired up and the Cowboys fizzled afterwards.
