The Dallas Cowboys are in first place in the NFC East!

The Cowboys get a Thanksgiving Day win and move into first.

NFL: Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys had a thrilling victory over the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving Day. What a beautiful sentence that is.

The win catapulted Dallas to the top of the NFC East and they have a record above .500 for the first time this season. There’s plenty to be thankful for as it was just earlier this month when the team lost to the Tennessee Titans that everyone thought the season was over.

Here were the best moments from the big Thanksgiving win, including Amari Cooper’s breakout performance with the Cowboys. Oh and Ezekiel Elliott donating Dak Prescott to the Salvation Army... kind of.

Ezekiel Elliott’s first touchdown was worth $21

Anthony Brown! It really is 2016!

Dak Prescott is quite tough to bring down

The Zeke stiff arm is unreal

Amari Cooper touchdown!

Amari Cooper touchdown! Again! Amazing! Fun!

Are you not entertained?

DeMarcus Lawrence is quite good

He also is going to be very rich very soon


Zeke was giving away everything, including Dak Prescott

Xavier Woods is giving thanks for an interception

If you’re wondering what else to root for this week, we’ve got the official BTB rooting guide right here. The most important thing left this week is for the New York Giants to take down the Philadelphia Eagles.

Regardless of what happens the Cowboys will maintain first place in the division. It’s going to be a great week.
