    导出博客文章CLEVELAND -- Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes and
    kept any talk for Tony Romo unnecessary, leading the Dallas Cowboys to a 35-10
    win on Sunday over the winless Cleveland Browns.Rookie Ezekiel Elliott rushed
    for 92 yards and scored twice and durable tight end Jason Witten had 134 yards
    receiving for the Cowboys, off to their best start since 2007.Prescott has won
    seven straight starts since losing the season opener, and with the Cowboys (7-1)
    leading the NFC East and getting better, theres no reason for the team to
    accelerate Romos return from a back injury.Romo returned to practice earlier
    this week and is looking at a return at some point this season, but with how
    Prescott is playing, the 36-year-old doesnt look as if hell be back on the field
    anytime soon.The miserable Browns (0-9) dropped their franchise-record 12th
    straight game going back to last season and are 3-27 in their past 30. They also
    started 0-9 in 1975.Cleveland, which also lost 19 of 20 -- also a team record --
    got just 28 total yards in the second half.According to STATS, the Browns are
    the first team since the 1964 Denver Broncos to allow at least 25 points in
    their first nine games.Prescott threw a 26-yard TD pass to Jason Witten and a
    6-yarder to Cole Beasley in the first half to help open a 21-3 lead.And while
    hes pushing Romo deeper into the background, the fourth-round pick from
    Mississippi State is also drawing comparisons to another Cowboys rookie QB --
    Troy Aikman.Prescott broke two of the Hall of Famers team rookie records in the
    blowout, surpassing him in TDs and completions. With eight games left, Prescott,
    who finished 21 of 27 for 247 yards, will surpass all of Aikmans first-year
    marks and may start to chip away at some others as well.Elliott, too, has
    Cowboys fans thinking about those glory days when Aikman and Emmitt Smith were
    together in Dallas backfield. The first-round pick scored on runs of 10 and 8
    yards, giving him eight this season.Elliotts 8-yard TD run gave the Cowboys a
    28-10 lead in the third quarter, and Prescott put Dallas up by 25 points when he
    lofted a 2-yard pass to Gavin Escobar.In the first quarter, Prescott connected
    with a wide-open Witten on a 26-yard TD to give the Cowboys a 7-3 lead and
    thousands of Dallas fans who invaded FirstEnergy Stadium their first chance to
    scream.It was Prescotts 10th pass, pushing him past Aikmans rookie record and
    then he got No. 11 with his short toss to Beasley make it 21-3.ONE TOUGH
    COWBOYThe 34-year-old Witten, who had eight receptions, made his 155th
    consecutive start, breaking a team record held by linebacker Lee Roy Jordan.It
    was Wittens first 100-yard game since 2013 and the 13-year veteran moved past
    Calvin Johnson (11,619 yards) for 28th place on the career list.KESSLER
    RETURNSBrowns rookie quarterback Cody Kessler returned after missing one game
    with a concussion and passed for 203 yards. Kessler threw a 12-year-old TD pass
    to Terrelle Pryor and also took several hard shots as Dallas defense teed off on
    him with the big lead in the second half.ERVING VS. IRVINGFive plays into the
    game, the Browns and Cowboys were brawling.Cleveland starting center Cam Erving
    and Dallas defensive end David Irving scuffled following a play and both were
    ejected. Its not clear what prompted the altercation, which included punches
    being thrown and ended with Erving pulling off Irvings helmet.The loss of Erving
    caused the latest shakeup on Clevelands offensive line as John Greco moved from
    right guard to center, Alvin Bailey went from left guard to right and rookie
    Spencer Drango came in.---For more NFL coverage: and Wholesale

    record. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Ralph Webb ran for 123 yards and three touchdowns,
    and Vanderbilt scored 31 straight points in beating Ole Miss 38-17 Saturday
    night to snap a three-game skid to the Rebels.With the win, Vanderbilt (5-6, 2-5
    Southeastern Conference) assured coach Derek Mason his best record yet in his
    third season. The Commodores now need a win in their regular season finale to
    become bowl eligible for the first time since 2013. Their APR is so good that
    five wins could be enough, winning a sixth game would be even better.Listen
    thats exactly what were going to do, Mason said. Were going to line ourselves up
    and try to get ourselves ready to go play one more game because thats what were
    guaranteed. And you know what? Were looking forward to this one.Kyle Shurmur
    threw for 273 yards and two touchdowns, and the Commodores also had three sacks.
    Linebacker Zach Cunningham, the SECs leading tackler, recovered a
    fumble.Vanderbilt was the first SEC opponent that Ole Miss played this season
    that hadnt been ranked, and the Commodores snapped the Rebels two-game win
    streak. Now the Rebels (5-6, 2-5) need a win in the Egg Bowl to extend its bowl
    streak.Freshman Shea Patterson, so thrilling in rallying the Rebels to an upset
    at Texas A&M last week , struggled against Masons defense. Ole Miss had to
    settle for a field goal on the opening drive, and Patterson added TD passes to
    Akeem Judd and Evan Engram.The Rebels were held to a season-low in points, and
    Jason Pellerin replaced Patterson for the final drive. Ole Miss coach Hugh
    Freeze said they got beat on a big play before Vandy scored its first TD.Andd we
    never found the rhythm again offensively, Freeze said.dddddddddddd. I dont know
    how many drops we had tonight. It had to be approaching 10 to 12, and those are
    critical.The key play came within the opening minute of the third quarter and
    cost the Rebels their leading tackler, linebacker DeMarquis Gates, for a
    targeting even though a flag wasnt thrown.The penalty was announced after the
    replay booth reviewed what appeared to be a fumble by Vanderbilts Donovan
    Tennyson off a double reverse recovered by Ole Miss defensive back Tony Conner
    whose foot was out of bounds when he picked up the ball.Vanderbilt finished off
    a 90-yard drive with Webbs second TD, an 11-yard run, and a 21-10 lead.THE
    TAKEAWAYOle Miss: Patterson looked so dazzling in his debut at Texas A&M.
    But Mason defended the likes of Marcus Mariota while coordinator at Stanford,
    and that game gave Mason plenty to study of Patterson in the Ole Miss offense.
    At least the Rebels will be at home trying to become bowl eligible for a fifth
    straight season, something they havent done since 15 straight bowls between 1957
    and 1971.Vanderbilt: Ole Miss first TD came off a muffed punt by Darrius Sims in
    the first quarter, the kind of mistake that has often soured the Commodores
    fortunes. This time, they shook off the mistake with their best offensive
    performance against an SEC opponent in both points and yards (481).UP NEXTOle
