The Dallas Cowboys may be rolling with a 5-1 overall record, but Sunday's Week 6 victory over the New England Patriots was no easy task. The 2-4 Patriots pushed Dallas to overtime before CeeDee Lamb's game-winning touchdown.

Sseveral Cowboys voiced their frustration with the officiating on Sunday. In fact, both Ezekiel Elliott and Randy Gregory flat out ripped the referees with their post-game comments.

Did Dallas Cowboys Win Yesterday?

Most of the frustration can be pointed to the goal line stand at the end of the second quarter. With Dallas trailing 14-10 ahead of the second half, Dak Prescott and the team lined up on New England's one yard line. Prescott ran back-to-back quarterback sneaks and seemingly crossed the goal line on both, but the referees didn't see it that way.

Regardless, the Cowboys escaped Foxborough with a gritty 35-29 win ahead of a Week 7 bye. With their 5-1 record, Dallas leads the NFC East division and holds the eighth-best odds (+1200) to win Super Bowl 56 on FanDuel Sportsbook.
