Cowboys running back Tony Pollard got his fourth career start with Ezekiel Elliott sidelined with a knee injuryand ran for 131 yards and a career-high three rushing touchdowns on a career-high 14 carries, CBS Sports noted. Quarterback Dak Prescott also looked more like himself in his second start back from a fractured thumb, completing 21 of 27 passes for 250 yards, two passing touchdowns and an interception along with a rushing touchdown.
Bears quarterback Justin Fields had 151 passing yards and two passing touchdowns on 17 of 23 passing for a career-high 120.0 passer rating in addition to 60 rushing yards and another touchdown. However, Fields accounted for a Cowboys score when he failed to touch Dallas defensive player Micah Parsons after the latter recovered a Bears fumble; Parson then sprinted 36 yards for his first career touchdown.
"You're always gonna have ups and downs in the game," Fields said while acknowledging he should have simply touched Parsons, according to ESPN. "You've just got to keep fighting."
