Taking a look at relevant numbers from the latest win

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

As is our wont, we now take a look at some of the key numbers from the Dallas Cowboys victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

0 - The number of punts Dallas had after their first score. The Ravens worked hard to put the brakes on Ezekiel Elliott and make Dak Prescott beat them. Dak adjusted, and did.

1 - The number of second half incompletions thrown by Dak Prescott, who was 14/15 for 146 yds and 2 TDs. Somehow this did not come out to a perfect passer rating, despite the excellent yardage per attempt. The only incompletion came on a rare botched snap by Travis Frederick, where Dak did well to get rid of the ball in the direction of Gavin Escobar.

3 - The number of second half drives that Dallas required to gain a 2-1 time of possession advantage in the second half, racking up over 20 minutes ToP on those three drives.

252 - The amount of yardage obtained on those three drives, an average of 84 yards per drive.

15 - The number of first downs obtained on those three drives. More than one-third of Dallas’ 42 second half offensive plays resulted in a first down.

1 - The number of failed third-down conversions in the second half. On the first play after the two-minute warning, Ezekiel Elliott was stopped a half-yard short of the first down while Dallas was setting up for a field goal to make the game a two score affair. Dallas converted all the rest of their third downs in the half.

60.0 - The number of defensive snaps Dallas plays per game, third lowest in the league (Philadelphia and Baltimore both tied at 59.6)

1,102 - The new Dallas rookie rushing record, held by Ezekiel Elliott, with six games to go.

7 - The number of games Dallas has allowed 20 points or less. Tied with Kansas City for best in the league.

9 - The number of games Dallas has scored 24 points or more. First in the NFL. Dallas is 9-0 when scoring at least 24 points.

9 - The longest single-season winning streak in team history.

7 - Number of games with 100+ yards from scrimmage for rookie Ezekiel Elliott. With six games to go he is tied for 27th all time in NFL history with such names as Earl Campbell, Franco Harris, Adrian Peterson, and Odell Beckham. Ahead of names like Marcus Allen, Gale Sayers, and Terrell Davis. three more (half his remaining games) puts him in the all time top ten. Dallas is 7-0 when Elliott gains 100 yards from scrimmage.

64 - Receiving TDs for Dez Bryant, putting him one behind Michael Irvin for second place on the franchise receiving TD list. Bob Hayes is the leader with 71. It also places him in the top 10 of active career TD leaders.

4 - The combination of Dallas wins and Giants (or Redskins) losses required for Dallas to clinch the division.

That’s right, your Dallas Cowboys have a Magic Number and, at the moment, it is "4".
