The Cowboys held serve Saturday night.
They beat a very bad Bucs team in Tampa, and the Cowboys did it convincingly by the score of 31-15, with a victory formation inside the Bucs’ five-yard line to cap the night.
The game wasn’t as close as the score indicated. The Cowboys had 28 first downs to only seven for the Bucs, and led 28-0 at halftime before cruising to the win.
The win puts the Cowboys at 8-6, in the thick of a division race and wild card race that will go down to the season’s final Sunday.
