The Dallas Cowboys rolled right through the number one ranked defense in the NFL on Sunday cruised to their 9th straight victory.
At some point, the national media is going to stop doubting these Dallas Cowboys. Dallas faced off against the Baltimore Ravens and their number one defense, but Baltimore was not able to slow the Cowboys down as they rolled to a 27-17 victory.

I am not even going to go into the performance of sensational rookie quarterback Dak Prescott or running back Ezekiel Elliott. Those two young studs deserve plenty of credit in this victory, but the team as a whole just keeps getting more impressive each week.
The Ravens started off fast as they were able to march right down the field early in the first quarter and punch it in for a touchdown with running back Terrance West. The tough Ravens defense was also able to make Dallas punt the first four times they had the ball. But, just like every other opponent this year, they couldn’t maintain that pace and Dallas wore them out in the second half.
After some players for the Ravens mocked Elliott and wide receiver Dez Bryant early on, it was the Cowboys that got the last laugh. After facing a first down and thirty yards to go scenario, Prescott and the offense made some key plays to get their first touchdown and they never looked back.
While this was a very tough test against a great defense with a nasty reputation, this Cowboys team keeps checking all the boxes and prevails against every look teams throw at them. This Dallas team is very fortunate to have the weapons they do, and allow teams to pick their poison. If you sell out to stop the run, the passing game is going to make your life a nightmare.
If you roll coverage to stop two of Dallas’ biggest threats, there will be three others wide open. If you play coverage, Elliott and the run game will gash you. In other words, this offense is special. I will even go as far as to say that this is the best offense in Dallas Cowboys history.
It would be very fitting if so as this team keeps shattering record after record. The latest record to fall is the longest win-streak in regular season team history. That now belongs to this squad at nine games in a row. Yes, the Cowboys have won their last nine contests and have assured themselves a winning record after only winning four all of last year. Incredible.
It is well known that the best football – and most important – comes after Thanksgiving each year. Well, Thanksgiving week is upon us and the Cowboys have a chance to enter that stretch at an unprecedented 10-1 if they can take care of business against the Washington Redskins on Thursday.
It’s hard to believe that this squad could possibly continue to get better each week, but that’s exactly how it appears. Tighten your seat belts Cowboys fans, the ride is just about to get a lot more exciting as this historic team comes down the stretch.
