The Seattle Seahawks fought valiantly and kept it tight throughout, but a late push from quarterback Dak Prescott secured a 41-35 win for the Dallas Cowboys, their 14th consecutive home victory.

Offensive spotlight: Don't look now, but Dak Prescott is firmly in the MVP conversation, and the Dallas Cowboys are quickly becoming a team nobody wants to face at AT&T Stadium.

Prescott finished 29-of-41 for 299 yards and three scores on Thursday Night Football, recording three big-time throws and no turnover-worthy plays. And even that stat line does him some injustice, as four of those incompletions were because of drops by his receivers. 

Defensive spotlight: Micah Parsons was held without a sack in this one, but his presence gave the Seahawks offensive line fits at times on Thursday night. Parsons notched three quarterback hits and one hurry, but he recorded six pas-rush wins that didn't result in pressure. 

Rookie spotlight: Seahawks rookie Jaxon Smith-Njigba saw a season-high 11 targets against the Cowboys, and he caught seven of them for 62 yards and four first downs. The Ohio State product averaged 6.9 yards after the catch per reception on the night.
