Live ticker Dallas Cowboys – Washington Commanders (NFL 2023/2024, Week 12)


First drive stopped!

Washington’s defense does a good job and ensures a three and out. But there was a bit of luck because CeeDee Lamb dropped a very deep pass on the second attempt.


Start of 3rd quarter

Do the Commanders defy all expectations? The second half begins, but initially with possession of the ball for the Cowboys. It will be a tough job for the capital city residents.


Cowboys lead against defensive Washington

Dolly Parton is about to perform at the halftime show! … Oh well, there was something else. As expected, the Dallas Cowboys lead 10:20 against the Washington Commanders after the first half. However, the guests are surprisingly defensive. Sam Howell in particular impresses with his calmness against the aggressive Dallas defense. Nevertheless, the home team was able to snap a few times. That also helped Dak Prescott, who has shown a really strong performance here so far. He led his offense to this lead with three touchdowns, once letting his running back Pollard take the glory.


End of 2nd quarter

It’s half time.


It doesn’t want to work

In the end, the commanders stretch in vain. The Cowboys’ quick drive gives Washington a chance to get on the field again. But after the first new 1st down it’s over. The Dallas defense closes down and we go into the break with 10:20!


I have to get through here!


Missed extra point!

Bitter! B. Aubrey (Cowboys) misses the extra point from close range!


T. Pollard (Cowboys) touchdown to make it 10:20

Tony Pollard

That’s crazy! Four or five plays are enough for the Cowboys to get the touchdown! It only takes about 80 seconds for Pollard to fuel his way through the center, break a tackle and score six points. Aubrey then hits the left post!


That’s annoying!

What kind of crooked thing is this for Danny Johnson? The defender wants to fend off a long pass, the egg hits his back and from there into Jalen Brooks’ hands, giving him a new 1st down!


Points for the Cowboys again?

At 1:51, Dak Prescott is allowed to take charge of the drive. Is a timeout enough for him to score points? At the beginning, the defense at least gives him a small advantage with the encroachment. So he starts with 1st & 5.

11:55 p.m

Himself is the quarterback


Extra point by J. Slye (Commanders) to make it 10:14

Joey Slye

J. Slye’s extra point attempt is good!


Touchdown by S. Howell (Commanders) to make it 9:14

Sam Howell

At first a few centimeters are still missing, but in the next attempt the Commanders manage the touchdown. Howell turns right, where Robinson also offers an option. However, the QB himself moves towards the end zone and gets the touchdown!


There is the red zone

With a strong play from Howell and the pass to Dotson, Washington reached the redzone. The two-minute warning gives everyone involved a chance to breathe a little.


Everything rodger at Robinson


Good reaction!

On the second try, Howell finds his favorite receiver, Terry McLaurin. He gets a new 1st down and keeps the drive alive. Now there’s only 30 yards left to go.

11:45 p.m

At some point the defense will snap!

First Dante Fowler causes a yellow flag, a little later he grabs Sam Howell for a powerful snap. What are the Commanders doing at 2nd & 12?

11:40 p.m

Washington remains stable

When it comes to yards gained, the Commanders are almost in no way inferior to their opponents. This drive also starts well again with two new 1st downs. However, a further break in treatment causes an interruption. It is Brian Robinson, of all people, who has to leave the field after a defender accidentally stepped on his leg while the running back was already on the ground.


No problem for Cooks


Extra point by B. Aubrey (Cowboys) to make it 3:14

Brandon Aubrey

B. Aubrey’s extra point attempt is good!


Touchdown by B. Cooks (Cowboys) to make it 3:13

Brandin Cooks

It’s happening really quickly here! At the 31-yard line, Prescott takes the ball and sees Brandin Cooks up front completely deceiving his man-markers. Accordingly, the leather flies quickly to the top, where a free Cooks walks for a touchdown. 3:13!

11:30 p.m

Plenty of room for Prescott

The quarterback pulls out of the pocket on the left and suddenly has a lot of space. He starts slightly hesitantly, but ultimately gets a clear new 1st down.

11:25 p.m

Field goal by J. Slye (Commanders) to make it 3:7

Joey Slye

There are almost a cowboy’s slips in the way, but in the end Slye confidently kicks the ball between the posts from 42 yards. The Commanders shorten the score to 3:7.


Screen fails

The Commanders try a screen, but are completely ripped apart. The immediate tackle creates a 3rd & 18, which Howell and Co. can’t overcome afterwards. Nevertheless, there should be the first points for Washington…

11:20 p.m

Injury interruption

After a good run through the center by Robinson, Markquese Bell remains lying on the artificial turf. Clearly the linebacker is in a lot of pain and is seeking treatment. Hopefully this isn’t anything serious.


Just a look back at the first section…


Start of 2nd quarter

The ball is back in play. We continue with the second quarter.

11:15 p.m

End of 1st quarter

The first section is over.

11:15 p.m

Strong pass at the end of the quarter!

Hardly back on the field, Howell is back in front of 3rd & 10. But the QB keeps calm and throws the leather out to Samuel on the left. Even after the catch, he still makes a few yards for a clear first down. The second quarter starts with possession of the ball for Washington!


Short pass, long run!


Extra point by B. Aubrey (Cowboys) to make it 0:7

Brandon Aubrey

B. Aubrey’s extra point attempt is good!


A touchdown by R. Dowdle (Cowboys) made it 0:6

Rico Dowdle

The Drive was dead until the Commanders brought it back to life! Half-right opens up for Rico Dowdle, allowing him to march untouched into the end zone with 18 yards remaining. Washington couldn’t handle the screen at all. The Cowboys lead!


Washington returns the favor

With the best starting position, the Commanders also make a false start, which suddenly leaves the Cowboys at 3 & 5 again. Pollard runs the missing yards and gets a new 1st down!


Unusual mistakes from Lamb!

A good play by the Cowboys is called back because of a holding by CeeDee Lamb. Immediately afterwards, the receiver makes a false start. Suddenly the Cowboys are facing 2 & 25.

11:00 p.m

Now the deep pass is in place!

Tight end Ferguson runs free through the center, although there is actually only a very small gap. But Prescott doesn’t need more in this situation and throws the egg precisely from his own end zone to the 30-yard line, where Ferguson is stopped!


Robinson drops the egg!

The pressure on Sam Howell is enormous, but he holds up for a long time! Once again he leads his offense into the opponent’s half, but on 2nd down Robinson can’t catch his short pass! On the third attempt, Howell has to get rid of the thing too quickly, which is why no colleague is ready. This is how punting happens again!


1st down again

Once again the Commanders used the first three attempts to get a new 1st down with the pass out to the right to McLaurin. Can Howell and Co. build on that?


The special team is here! Or?

At first glance, this looks really good for the Cowboys’ special team! First the punt flies directly to the opponent’s end zone, then Williams grabs the punt returner and brings him to the ground at the 2-yard line! However, the yellow flags immediately flew because Williams reached into the face mask. So the Commanders gain 15 yards!


Prescott wants the big play

Prescott brought the very first throw to his teammate. But after the punishment he became a bit cocky. Two deep passes fly over star receiver CeeDee Lamb, which is why the kicking team has to go onto the field.

10:45 p.m

Are the fouls coming now?

St. Juste makes an illegal contact, which is why an actually empty attempt by the Cowboys leads to a five-yard gain and a new 1st down. These are exactly the mistakes that Washington needs to correct in order to survive in games like this.


First bag and stop!

That was it. The Cowboys are there for the new first attempt, also because Howell can’t get rid of the leather. So the young man is sacked eight yards behind the line of scrimmage. With the next two attempts he doesn’t get a new 1st down. Dak Prescott comes onto the field!


Robinson twice

The Commanders’ running back is extremely important. On the first play of the game he ran for eight yards. On the third attempt he is allowed to run again, receives the pass on the right and takes a few steps. The next snap begins in the Cowboys half.

10:35 p.m

Game start

Kickoff in the game between the Washington Commanders and the Dallas Cowboys. The home team kicks the ball and lets Sam Howell onto the field. The QB starts from the 25-yard line. The game is running.


The anthem sounds

What would American football be without the USA anthem? A trumpet sounds through AT&T Stadium. We’re just moments away from kickoff.

10:15 p.m

A defense to fear

If any team is looking forward to problems on offense, it’s the Cowboys. The Dallas defense has already collected 51 sacks this season – seven on the weekend against the Panthers alone. 2.5 of these sacks were attributed to star defender Micah Parsons. This excellent defense also has a positive effect on the offense, which averages over 40 points in home games. This is also why the Cowboys have been unbeaten at home for twelve games. Another win would move Dallas to 8-3, which would put them back in touch with the Eagles.

9:59 p.m

How long will the trainer continue?

There have been significantly worse seasons in NFL history, but the Commanders reached a new low last weekend. Washington gave the New York Giants, led by the often hapless Tommy Devito, six (!) turnovers! This resulted in 24 points, which is of course decisive in a 19:31 defeat. Magic Johnson, who is part of the ownership group, made his frustration public. This is one of the reasons why the future of head coach Ron Rivera is already being hotly debated.

9:44 p.m

Cowboys vs. Commanders

In the second game of the Thanksgiving Games, the Dallas Cowboys face the Washington Commanders. Both teams are relatively far apart in the NFC East, which is why Dallas will probably want to use the game to attack the Eagles on the throne. The Commanders, on the other hand, want to maintain a minimal chance of getting the wildcard. It starts at 8:30 p.m.
