On a day when the offense couldn’t manage a touchdown, the Dallas Cowboys fell to the Bills in Buffalo on Sunday, 16-6.
The Bills’ only points in the first half came on a one-yard touchdown run from Karlos Williams, which capped a 60-yard drive that took just under two minutes. But Dan Carpenter missed the extra point, so Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey’s pair of first half field goals was enough to keep it tied, at 6-6.
Also helping keep it tied was Cowboys cornerback Deji Olatoye, who intercepted Tyrod Taylor in the end zone to essentially end the first half.

In the second half, though, the Bills took over—or at least, did enough so that the sputtering Dallas offense couldn’t catch up. It started with a field goal from Carpenter, from 32 yards out midway through the second quarter, to give the Bills the lead, 9-6. Late in the fourth, Bills running back Mike Gillislee provided the dagger with a 50-yard touchdown run.
Lucky Whitehead fumbled the kickoff after the touchdown, which allowed the Bills to simply run out the clock on a 16-6 victory.
In his first career start, Kellen Moore went 13-of-31 passing for 186 yards and an interception.
