For the first-time in nearly a month, the Dallas Cowboys have won an NFL game. The Cowboys defeated the Washington Redskins 38-14 on Thursday Night Football at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The Cowboys won its first game without star running back Ezekiel Elliott since he withdrew his six-game suspension appeal for a violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy. They improved to 6-6 on the season.
