Rivers wins duel to Prescott and Cowboys suffer third straight defeat

Veteran quarterback Philip Rivers led the Los Angeles Chargers’ winning offense that won 6-28 at home to the Dallas Cowboys in the second game of Thanksgiving Day Week 12 the National Football League (NFL).

Rivers threw for 434 yards and three touchdowns in his first Thanksgiving game in 14 career seasons, and he also won the individual duel with young passer Dak Prescott.

The Chargers (5-6) were always superior to the lackluster Cowboys (5-6), who suffered the third consecutive loss and move away from the playoffs.

Cornerback Desmond King returned an interception 90 yards for the touchdown that served as a turning point in favor of the Chargers, who approached a game and a half from the leaders of the Western Division of the American Conference (AFC), the Kansas Chiefs. City

The Chargers, who started the season with a losing record of 0-4 have started playing their best football and have taken advantage of the downturn suffered by the Chiefs (6-4), who started with a 5-0 run and now have two consecutive defeats.

The defending NFC East champions, Cowboys (5-6), lost their third straight game by at least 20 points, all without star running back Ezekiel Elliott, in a slip that seriously affects their playoff hopes.

Dallas, which played in its Thanksgiving game, finally ended a 10-touchdown drought, a new record for the team, when late runner Rod Smith scored on a 2-yard run at the start of the fourth quarter. .

Wide receiver Keenan Allen set a career-high 172 yards on 11 touchdowns, giving him 23 receptions for 331 yards and three touchdowns in the last two games, which left him as the most outstanding player in the Chargers’ offense.

Rivers completed 27 of 33 pitches without an interception or was knocked down, leaving 149.1 the passer rating.

While Prescott completed 20 of 27 passes for 179 yards, without any scoring, he was intercepted by two balls, knocked down two more times 11 times and dropped to 60.6 the passer rating.

At the end of the game Prescott acknowledged that he had to have done better individual work in order to give the team the opportunity to fight for the win, something that never happened.
