FRISCO - The Dallas Cowboys didn't quickly forget the loss to Green Bay. Nor did they forget the club's first-ever blown 14-point fourth-quarter lead that led to that loss.

Quarterback Dak Prescott seems to be finding his rhythm after missing five games with a broken thumb earlier in the season.
"I think coach (Mike) McCarthy said it best," Prescott said. "Take a picture of what it felt like, of what it looked like when we were at our best. And when you're not, remind yourself or do the things that are necessary to get back to that."
The Giants came crashing back to Earth on Sunday with a 31-18 loss to the Lions. New York gave up season highs allowing 31 points and three turnovers.
Dallas beat New York 23-16 in Week 3, and New York would fall what equates to two games behind the Cowboys with a loss on Thursday.
