The Dallas Cowboys sealed a 28-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale on Monday night thanks to two fourth-quarter touchdowns.
Tied at 14-14 with 12 minutes left to play, Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott found Brice Butler in the end zone to put the visitors ahead.
Prescott completed 13 of 18 passes for a total of 183 yards, as well as a spectacular dive into the end zone for a touchdown of his own in the second quarter.

The Cardinals could only manage a field goal in reply before Ezekiel Elliott crossed the line from eight yards out to put the result beyond doubt with just five minutes remaining.

Before the game, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones linked arms and knelt with his players in a sign of unity prior to the playing of the national anthem in what Cowboys’ wide receiver Dez Bryant said was a protest at what he said were President Donald Trump’s attempts to divide people.
