By the numbers: Cowboys' balanced attack too much for Browns

CLEVELAND — The Cowboys flexed their muscles at FirstEnergy Stadium, rolling past the Browns, 35-10, Sunday afternoon.

We're breaking it down by the numbers.

339 — The Cowboys have been powered by the rookie duo of quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott. So it was fitting the pair combined for 339 yards and all five of Dallas' touchdowns.

222 — The Browns were held to 222 total yards, including just 28 in the second half. Cleveland amassed 194 yards in the first before sputtering in the final 30 minutes of play.

3 — Prescott, who passed for 247 yards, tossed three touchdown passes for the second time this season.

207 — In his return to the field, rookie quarterback Cody Kessler passed for 207 yards and a touchdown. Kessler, who missed last week with a concussion, made his sixth start.

168 — Behind Elliott, who finished with 94 yards and two touchdowns, the Cowboys rushed for 168 yards and dominated the line of scrimmage all afternoon in Cleveland.

29 — Dallas totaled 29 first downs, while the Browns had 13.

0 — Neither the Browns nor Cowboys committed a single turnover.

44 — On the second play from scrimmage, Kessler zipped a 44-yard pass to running back Isaiah Crowell. It was the longest pass play by either team.

45 — Cleveland finished with 45 yards rushing as it continues to search for a once-dominant ground game. ​

The Browns play the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.
