NFL Week 11 Game Recap: Kansas City Chiefs 19, Dallas Cowboys 9

The Kansas City Chiefs’ defense tallied three takeaways, sacked Dak Prescott six times and didn't allow a touchdown en route to a low-scoring victory over the Dallas Cowboys to move to 7-4.

A game billed as an expected shootout turned into a defensive slugfest. The Chiefs' much-improved defense held Prescott to under 250 yards and without a passing touchdown for just the second time this season.

Kansas City Chiefs

Quarterback

Patrick Mahomes didn’t duplicate his phenomenal passing display from last week, but his 79.4% adjusted completion percentage and two big-time throws got the job done. He did toss an interception and was hurt by four drops.

Running Backs

In his return from injury, Clyde Edwards-Helaire finished with a pending 85.8 rushing grade, buoyed by 40 yards after contact, three rushing first downs and 5.3 yards per carry. CEH also ripped off an explosive run and forced three missed tackles. 

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Tyreek Hill is set to earn a 70.0-plus receiving grade despite just one explosive catch and 8.6 yards per reception. Hill did reel in nine of his 11 targets, with seven going for first downs. Tight end Travis Kelce notched two explosive plays, three first-down grabs and 14.8 yards per reception.

Offensive Line

The Chiefs' line did not have its cleanest showing, allowing three sacks and 10 hurries on the day. Tackle Andrew Wylie was victimized the most, surrendering seven pressures on his own.

Defensive Line

Chris Jones dominated the interior, finishing with seven total pressures — including four sacks and three hurries. His 17.5% pressure rate set the tone against a formidable Dallas offensive line. 

Linebackers

A tackle for loss and two defensive stops from Nick Bolton made up a quiet were the lone highlights in an underwhelming run-defense performance.

Secondary

L’Jarius Sneed had his highs and lows playing press man coverage, but he did register a forced incompletion, three defensive stops and a game-changing interception in the end zone to stave off any shot of a Dallas rally.

Dallas Cowboys

Quarterback

Dak Prescott didn't throw a touchdown, marking the second time that's happened this season. Two turnover-worthy plays, zero big-time throws and just 5.2 yards per attempt capped off an underwhelming 65.2 passing grade, pending final reviews, that was hampered by drops (5) and sacks (5).

Running Backs

The running back duo of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard had only one combined explosive run but did manage 82 yards on 16 carries. Pollard tallied 44 of his 50 yards after contact, but he didn't convert any of his attempts into a first down. 

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Dalton Schultz’s two explosive catches and pending 67.6 receiving grade reigned supreme among an extremely underwhelming Dallas pass-catching core. Michael Gallup moved the chains on four of his five grabs.

Offensive Line

The Dallas offensive line finished with a 76.6 pass-blocking grade, pending final reviews, despite Chris Jones’ lights-out performance. Guard Zack Martin allowed three total pressures and a sack but held up otherwise en route to a 75.0-plus pass-blocking grade on first review.

Defensive Line

Tarell Basham and Dorance Armstrong led the way for Dallas with three pressures apiece, although only one resulted in a quarterback hit.

Linebackers

Micah Parsons dominated with nine pressures — two sacks and seven hurries — to finish the day with a 91.0 pass-rushing grade on first review.

Secondary

Trevon Diggs did not collect his weekly interception, and he instead allowed five catches for 65 yards and two first downs.
