Cowboys vs. Falcons results: Score, highlights from Week 11 game in Atlanta

Takeaway Tuesday Cowboys Have a Championship Defense

The Cowboys are leading the Falcons, 19-12, late in the second half.

Dallas Cowboys rookie receiver Michael Gallup is away from the team after being told following a victory in Atlanta that his brother had died by suicide.

The game started as a shootout between the teams' kickers, as no touchdowns were scored until the third quarter. Here steps in Matt Ryan, who is rightfully top five in most passing categories, specifically touchdowns and passing yards per game. While the Cowboys defense has been enough, there is still much to worry about on Sunday against the Falcons. Here's how it went down. Atlanta's defense held on a tremendous pass break up by Corner Desmond Trufant, and Dallas settled for a 21-yard field goal by Brett Maher, making it 3-0. Jones posted six catches for 118 yards and a touchdown. The exta-point is good. Besides the Redskins game, he also had three receptions for 51 yards in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football. Matt Ryan's pass intended for Calvin Ridley is intercepted by Leighton Vander Eschat who returns it 28 yards.

Prescott finished off the drive and gave the game its first touchdown with a 4-yard scamper to put the Cowboys up 12-6. Cowboys 12, Falcons 9. Esch leads the Cowboys with 77 tackles and had his first career interception against the Eagles last week.

Dak Prescott Continues To Be Money In Clutch Si

Another DeMarcus Lawrence sack on a third down play knocked the Falcons out of field goal range.

The Falcons fall to 4-6 and saw their playoff hopes effectively end. Most notably, defense played a huge part in keeping this game close. Falcons 6, Cowboys 6.

And his top defensive work even led to the Falcons taking the lead a few minutes later, although we now know that it didn't amount to anything in the end.

The Cowboys sat at 3-5 after a Monday Night Football loss to the Titans on November 5, facing an uphill climb in the NFC playoff race. Vic Beasley sacks Dak Prescott for a loss of 11 yards. Matt Bryant ties it up with a 41 yard field goal.
