Chiefs defense stops Cowboys attack in win

Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown on his return from injured reserve, Chris Jones and the Kansas City defense made life miserable for Dak Prescott and the Chiefs beat the Cowboys 19-9 on Sunday night. Dallas

Patrick Mahomes completed 23 of 37 passes with an interception and a fumble for Kansas City, but was rescued by his defense, which played its best game of the season. Charvarius Ward intercepted a pass to Prescott in the end zone near the end of the first half and Jones had three and a half sacks as well as forcing and recovering a fumble.

The result: The Chiefs (7-4) improved to 4-0 against opponents in the National Conference East with their fourth win in a row overall.

Prescott was limited to 216 passing yards and two interceptions for the Cowboys, although the quarterback did not have players who tend to help him much. Left tackle Tyron Smith missed his third straight game with an ankle injury, wide receiver Amari Cooper tested positive for COVID-19 and teammate CeeDee Lamb suffered a concussion just before halftime.

Ezekiel Elliott, who apparently injured his ankle early in the game, finished with nine carries for 32 yards. Linebacker Micah Parsons was the highlight for the Cowboys (7-3), forcing a fumble and getting two more quarterback sacks on the season.
