Cowboys vs. Bills final score, results: James Cook stars as Buffalo crushes Dallas in Week 15

Sunday’s game between the Cowboys and the Bills was expected to be a close shootout, but it was anything but that. Instead, Buffalo recorded a dominant offensive performance to a lackluster one from Dallas.

The 31-10 victory was crucial for Buffalo as it continues to remain in contention for a postseason spot. The Bills were expected to play with a level of desperation because of that, and that was reflected clearly in this result.

Meanwhile, Dallas’ loss did not make a significant difference for the team, which clinched a playoff berth after Atlanta’s loss earlier in the day, but it could have some effect on the Cowboys’ seeding. Dak Prescott’s standing in the MVP conversation took a bit of a blow as he completed 21 of 34 passes for just 134 yards and an interception. He failed to record a touchdown after entering the game with a league-high 28 passing touchdowns on the season.

The standout of Sunday’s game was Bills running back James Cook. He carried the ball 25 times for 179 yards with a touchdown while adding 42 yards and a score through the air.
