CeeDee Lamb catches OT game-winner as Cowboys top Patriots

Dak Prescott found a wide-open CeeDee Lamb for a 35-yard touchdown pass with 3:52 left in overtime as the Dallas Cowboys held off the host New England Patriots 35-29 on Sunday for their fifth straight win.

Prescott finished 36 of 51 for 445 yards, three touchdowns and an interception for Dallas (5-1), which hasn’t lost since a 31-29 setback at Tampa Bay on opening night. Lamb hauled in nine catches for 149 yards and two TDs and Ezekiel Elliot rushed for 69 yards on 17 carries.

The Cowboys took over at their own 20-yard line after the Patriots won the coin toss and punted to begin overtime. Prescott orchestrated a seven-play, 80-yard drive and connected with Lamb for the winning score.

Mac Jones was 15 of 21 for 229 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for New England (2-4). Damien Harris rushed 18 times for 101 yards and a touchdown and Kendrick Bourne led the Patriots with 75 receiving yards.

Dallas took a 17-14 lead as Prescott found Lamb for a go-ahead one-yard touchdown on a goal line fade with 4:49 remaining in the third quarter. Greg Zuerlein’s 45-yard field goal at 13:13 of the fourth stretched the Cowboys’ lead to 20-14.

Rhamondre Stevenson’s first career TD on a one-yard rush restored the Patriots’ lead at 21-20 with 6:23 to go.

After Zuerlein missed a 51-yarder for Dallas with 2:42 to play, Trevon Diggs picked off Jones and returned it 42 yards for a score to put the Cowboys up 26-21 with 2:27 left. Diggs matched an NFL record with an interception in his sixth straight game to start the season.

On the next play from scrimmage, Bourne caught a pass from Jones and split two defenders before racing 75 yards into the end zone untouched. A two-point conversion pass to Jakobi Meyers put New England up 29-26 at the 2:11 mark.

Zuerlein made a 49-yard field goal with 20 seconds left to tie it at 29 and force overtime.

New England led 14-10 at halftime after forcing a pair of Cowboys turnovers in the end zone in the second quarter.
