Cowboys ride Cooper to share of NFC East lead

WATCH: Amari Cooper with 90-yard TD for Dallas Cowboys

WATCH: Amari Cooper with 90-yard TD for Dallas Cowboys

Dallas' last three-pick game was in the 12th win of that year, 26-20 over Tampa Bay.

McCoy and the Redskins punched back with 10 points in the fourth quarter.

Atlanta's Matt Ryan was stripped by safety Marcus Williams on a third-and-2 from the Saints 3 and Williams recovered to end Atlanta's opening drive. Teams in Chicago, New Orleans and Los Angeles might start casting a anxious eye toward Big D. The main concern for Dallas head coach Jason Garrett and his assistants could be the disturbingly long list of their players with injuries of varying severity. But he tossed three interceptions and was sacked three times.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper is coming off a tremendous performance in the team's Thanksgiving victory over the Washington Redskins and is motivated to show the Cowboys that they were right in giving up a 1st round pick to acquire him from the Oakland Raiders earlier this season via trade. He caught eight passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns, including a spectacular 90-yard score that electrified the home crowd.

The bonus for the Dallas Cowboys: They're all the way back in the NFC East race.

Despite cold, balloons fly at Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade
Last year, it was announced that the band was selected to perform in the parade representing the state of Ohio. The parade runs 46 blocks from the west side of Central Park to Macy's flagship store in midtown Manhattan.

Elliott ran for 121 yards with his TD and cash celebration as the Cowboys (6-5) won their third straight game since their first home loss, to Tennessee in the Dallas debut of Cooper.

In his first start since 2014, Colt McCoy went 24-for-38 for 268 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.

Redskins: First of two meetings in the final five games against the defending champion Eagles, at Philadelphia on Monday, Dec. 3.

DETROIT (AP) - Chase Daniel made the most of his chance to fill in for Mitchell Trubisky, having the best day of his journeyman career. He was outshone by Dak Prescott, who finished 22-for-31 for 289 yards, two passing touchdowns and a rushing score.

The six-time Pro Bowl player briefly left the matchup with a chest injury, but returned in the third quarter and played the remainder of the game.
