Out to start the game, the Cowboys drove 73 yards, getting to the Miami 1 yard line. DeShon Elliott set up a first-and-goal situation for the Cowboys by preventing Tony Pollard from getting into the end zone and the ball from crossing the goal line.
The Cowboys, who have a perfect record when they take the lead this season, signaled for fullback Hunter Luepke to run. Brandon Jones recovered for Miami at the 2 yard line, and Luepke fumbled the handoff from Dak Prescott.
Despite averaging just six touches per game this year, Luepke managed three on the first drive.
The Dolphins had a golden opportunity to score on a huge play, but quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw a bomb that would have needed receiver Tyreek Hill to pull it in from 92 yards out. Jaylen Waddle did go over a thousand yards receiving a pass from Tugovailoa for a gain of fifty yards.
He broke the record for most receiving seasons with three in a row, becoming the first player in franchise history to do so.
It helped the Dolphins set a new career high for field goals kicked by Jason Sanders, who went 57 yards.
However, the Cowboys responded with a three-play drive that culminated in CeeDee Lamb's 49-yard touchdown reception. Lamb, who has four receptions for ninety-three yards and a score, will not be accompanied by Jalen Ramsey on this trip.
Win 7-3 for the Cowboys.
