The return of QB Dak Prescott saw the Dallas Cowboys down the Detroit Lions at home by a score of 24-6 in Week 7.

Offensive spotlight: Dak Prescott completed 19-of-25 attempts for 207 yards and a touchdown in a win that was largely driven by the team’s defense. He passed for 8.3 yards per attempt with an aggressive average depth of target of 11.2 yards.

Defensive spotlight: The Dallas defense showed up with key turnovers at critical times. The Lions turned the ball over five times, losing three fumbles (including down by the Dallas goal line) and throwing two interceptions. Demarcus Lawrence and Micah Parsons each forced a fumble.

Rookie spotlight: Aidan Hutchinson had a great battle with Tyler Smith in a first-round rookie encounter. Smith allowed a sack but also buried Hutchinson into the turf later on a bull rush. Hutchinson ended up with a pass-rush win rate of 25.0%.

Offensive line spotlight: The Detroit offensive line held up relatively well, given the opposition. Penei Sewell at right tackle allowed very little to beat him, with the pressures given up largely coming from the other side of the line.
