But it wasn’t enough for the Cowboys, who had left themselves too much to do after Cleveland had turned a 14-7 deficit into a 41-14 lead thanks to 34 unanswered points.

Prescott launched the Dallas comeback with three successive touchdown passes to Dalton Schultz, Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb – all three converted for two points to leave the teams separated by three points.

That was the cue for the Browns to finally seal the win. With just over three minutes remaining, Beckham went right on a reverse, skirted a tackle attempt and assisted by downfield blocking, raced into the end zone for the win that was secured when Prescott was intercepted by Denzel Ward.

  • Baker Mayfield stats: 19/30, 165 yards, 2 TDs, x INT
  • Rushing leader: D-Ernest Johnson, 13 carries, 95 yards
  • Receiving leader: Odell Beckham Junior, 5 catches, 81 yards, 2 TDs

Prescott finished with a monstrous stat line, thanks to the late rally. The Cowboys’ quarterback completed 41 of 58 passes for 502 yards and four touchdowns. 24 points in the fourth quarter looked set to give Dallas a chance of another unlikely win.

However, Prescott’s only mistake was the Ward interception at the Cleveland four-yard line with 1:36 left in the game that sealed the outcome.

  • Dak Prescott stats: 41/58, 502 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT
  • Rushing leader: Ezekiel Elliott, 12 carries, 54 yards
  • Receiving leader: Amari Cooper, 12 catches, 134 yards, 1 TD

Given a dominant running game, Mayfield didn’t have to be spectacular, just efficient. He fulfilled that role, hitting on 19 of 30 attempts for 165 yards with the short touchdown passes and no interceptions.

The Browns’ most spectacular passing play came from a receiver. Jarvis Landry initiated scoring on a 37-yard strike off a reverse to Beckham, zinging a perfect pass over tight coverage less than three minutes into the game.

Cooper grabbed 12 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown for the Cowboys but their all-star offense was let down by their defense as they slipped to a third defeat from their opening four games.
