Jeff Heath did not know he had collided with Allen Hurns until he saw the Miami Dolphins receiver on the ground in the first half Sunday. Heath and Hurns had lockers next to each other last year and through the offseason program at The Star and developed a close friendship. “You hate to see any player get injured like that, but especially him,” Heath said. “Just praying for him and wanting him to know it wasn't intentional. I said that to him once he sat up and I'm going to call or text him tonight. Hopefully I can get in touch with him. I mean around here we're trying to play hard, we're trying to win the game, but at the end of the day when the game's over, we go home to our families and when our careers are over we have long lives after this.” Hurns did not return after suffering a concussion.

Through three games, it's difficult to get a read on the Cowboys' defense. In the first half of Sunday's win against Miami, they allowed 216 yards, 12 first downs and 6 points to an offense that struggled mightily in the first two games. In the second half, they allowed 67 yards, five first downs and no points, while collecting all three of their sacks. “Still a lot of work to do,” Jaylon Smith said. “We're showing glimpses of the type of group that we want to be.” Through three games, the Cowboys have allowed 44 points. In the first three games last season, they allowed 53.

Dak Prescott is finding the third quarter to his liking. In three games, Prescott is 22 of 22 for 384 yards and three touchdowns to start the second half. He completed all nine of his passes in the third quarter in Sunday's win against Miami for 137 yards and a touchdown pass to Amari Cooper. So what happens in the locker room at halftime? Sometimes Prescott will change his uniform because he's too sweaty, but he said no halftime has been the same this year. “Kellen (Moore) comes in with the adjustments, the coaches, they give them to us, and we just go from there,” Prescott said. “But at the end of the day it's a good time for us to just have a break or reset ourselves and realize as players and coaches what we've done well and what we need to get better at. And we'll continue to do that.”

Dolphins DE Taco Charlton -- who got a sack today -- on Jerry Jones citing his toughness as a part of why he didn't work in Dallas: "On the field, if you go 3 years down the line, we will get to see who is right and who is wrong. It's on me now."

Dak Prescott was not happy with his first half Sunday, completing 9 of 20 passes for 106 yards with a touchdown pass and interception. “I was just being too greedy,” Prescott said. “One of those heat checks or whatever you want to call it. Just trying to do too much in the first half. I said to Kellen (Moore) that was on me in the first half. I was being greedy. That's why I say it's a good tape to learn from for me probably in particular more than anybody else of just take what defense gives you. You want those. You get these shots in a couple of games and you get anxious and you want them again. Just stay with it, check it down. Those backs will get as many yards as those deep throws and allow the game to come to me. That's what I did in the second half.”

Elliott: 3-0 is special but it's business (0:29)
Prescott praises Zeke's and Pollard's performance (0:30)

With their 31-6 win against the Miami Dolphins, the Cowboys did what they had to do: beat a poor team when they did not play their best. The Cowboys are 3-0 for the first time since 2008 but that team imploded internally late in the season and missed the playoffs. Dak Prescott had two touchdown passes and a touchdown run in the same game for the eighth time in his career. It's the most by a Cowboys quarterback and the most by any NFL QB since 2016.

Tony Pollard has the first rushing touchdown of his career with a 16-yard carry in which he ran through a defender. He has 103 yards on the ground. Ezekiel Elliott has 125 yards on the ground. The last time the Cowboys had two 100-yard rushers in a game came Oct. 4, 1998 with Emmitt Smith (122) and Chris Warren (104). The Cowboys have scored at least 31 points in their first three games.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Ezekiel Elliott has more than 100 yards on the ground for the second straight game. Who needs training camp? His career high is 159 yards against Tampa Bay as a rookie. With 5:27 to go, Tony Pollard is on the field, not Elliott.

With two touchdown passes, Dak Prescott has nine in the Cowboys' first three games, tying the team record set by Don Meredith in 1966. Tony Romo had eight in 2007 and Roger Staubach had eight in 1978. Meredith had 14 touchdown passes through the first four games of the 1966 season.

Hurns exits with concussion after huge hit (0:29)

Four plays after Randall Cobb's touchdown was negated, Amari Cooper scores his second touchdown on the day on a 19-yard pass from Dak Prescott. Maybe this wakes the Cowboys up with a 17-6 lead after one drive of the second half. This is the fifth multi-touchdown game of Cooper's career and first since he had three in an overtime win against Philadelphia last season.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Randall Cobb's 74-yard touchdown catch is wiped out because of a holding penalty on Connor Williams. The Dolphins had a penalty on the play as well, but the flags offset. This is the kind of day it has been for the Cowboys. They can't get out of their own way.

The Cowboys allowed 6 completions on 8 targets for 92 yards when Chidobe Awuzie was the nearest defender to the targeted receiver in the first half against the Dolphins, according to NFL Next Gen Stats.

During the week the Cowboys said all the right things about facing a Miami team that had been outscored 102-10 in their first two games, but carry just a 10-6 lead into halftime against the Dolphins. If not for a DeMarcus Lawrence fumble recovery at the Dallas 9, the Cowboys could have found themselves trailing. Dak Prescott had 11 incomplete passes in the first two games. He has 11 incompletions in the first half, throwing for 106 yards on 9-of-20 passing.
