Cowboys shake adversity to turn back Chiefs

Travis Kelce isn't the fastest player on the Kansas City Chiefs, but the tight end managed to beat his teammates in a race Sunday afternoon.

A delay of game penalty followed by a pass for 12 yards put the ball at the 44 with 2 seconds left in the half.

Hill caught Alex Smith's pass just shy of the 40-yard line and briefly paused to size up the Dallas defense, which was dropped back near the 15-yard line.

The Chiefs' offense came into Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys as the highest scoring offense in the league, but only had three points with two seconds to play in the first half in Dallas.

Jones compounded the gaffe by the defense with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after the play. The Chiefs responded on the next series with an dazzling 56-yard touchdown reception from wide receiver Tyreek Hill.

But momentum started to swing in the Chiefs' favor.

It was character showing time for the Cowboys and, led by Prescott, they didn't blink.

Elliott gained 16 yards on five carries on the drive, none bigger than a 2-yard pickup on third-and-1 from the Kansas City 9 one play before Beasley's touchdown catch. Prescott completed just one pass on the drive, but he ran twice for 17 yards, including a key 4-yard gain on third-and-3 two plays before Elliott's score.

The Cowboys now lead the Chiefs 21-17. Williams had receptions of 27 and 51 yards as he recorded the third 100-yard game of his career, and his first since catching nine for 173 yards in the final game of the 2015 season.
