The Dallas Cowboys’ Week 6 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers might not have been the most thrilling offensive showdown, but it was enough to secure a 20-17 win.

Offensively, Dak Prescott shone as the standout quarterback on the field. He completed 21 of 30 passes for 272 yards, with one touchdown and zero interceptions. Three of his incompletions were due to dropped passes by his receivers. Prescott had three significant throws and no turnover-worthy plays. He accumulated 114 passing yards on throws of 10 or more yards downfield, earning an overall grade of 85.0+ on initial review.

On the defensive side, Cowboys linebacker Markquese Bell made a substantial impact with seven total tackles and five defensive stops. He was targeted five times in coverage, allowing four catches for 36 yards, but only one of those receptions resulted in a first down.

Among the rookies, Chargers edge rusher Tuli Tuipulotu had a solid performance, contributing two tackles, one defensive stop, and three QB pressures in the game.
