With the New England Patriots topping the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12 on Sunday, here are three studs and duds from the game for the Patriots.

The New England Patriots went into Week 12 looking to become the first team in the league to grab double-digit wins on the year. While welcoming in a tough NFC opponent into Gillette Stadium in Foxborough on Sunday evening in the Dallas Cowboys, the Patriots were able to accomplish that feat to snag their 10th win in the regular season.

New England took down Dallas in a low-scoring contest, taking down America’s Team, 13-9, at home in Foxborough. The Patriots jumped out to an early lead in the first half and didn’t look back for the remainder of the contest. New England, which held a 7-0 advantage after one quarter, went into halftime at home up 10-6 over Dallas at Gillette Stadium.

In the second half, the Patriots and Cowboys managed to each record one field goal apiece in the final two frames to come to the 13-9 final score.

With the win, New England grabbed its 10th win of the season and second victory in a row while moving to 10-1 overall on the year. The Patriots remain atop the AFC East division ahead of the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets and Miami Dolphins in the division.

The Patriots will return to action in Week 13 this weekend when they hit the road to face off against the Houston Texans on Sunday Night Football in Houston.

Following the Patriots taking down the Cowboys in Week 12 on Sunday, let’s go back to the game and dive into three studs and duds from the matchup.
