Prescott making Dallas' choice easy

CLEVELAND — America's Team is looking more and more like Dak Prescott's.

The rookie quarterback threw three easy touchdowns and kept any talk about Dallas playing Tony Romo unnecessary.

Prescott has won seven straight starts since losing the season opener, and with the Cowboys leading the NFC East and getting better, there's no reason for the team to accelerate Romo's return from a back injury.

Prescott said there has been no awkwardness between the QBs and credited Romo with guiding him through the early part of his career. If there's any controversy, it's taking place outside the confirms of the Cowboys locker room.

"Me and Tony have a great relationship," he said. "I don't think this team or anybody even worries about that. We come in stay focused and just try to win no matter who's back there."

Rookie Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 92 yards and scored twice, and durable veteran tight end Jason Witten had 134 yards receiving for the 7-1 Cowboys, off to their best start since 2007.

The 0-9 Browns have lost a franchise-record 12 straight.
