The high-flying Kansas City Chiefs offense pays a visit to AT&T Stadium for a Week 9 bout with the Cowboys on Sunday.
Ezekiel Elliott, who appeared to be left with no choice but to begin serving a six-game suspension earlier in the week, was granted a brief administrative stay that has him on the field against the Chiefs.
Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw his first interception of the season with just over five minutes to play.
Cole Beasley's second touchdown of the game put Dallas up by two scores, 28-17, with a couple ticks under nine minutes left to play.
Elliott had 12 carries across the Cowboys' first two possessions of the second half. Those drives went 12 plays for 75 yards (5:37) and 13 plays for 87 yards (6:46).
Dallas responded to the Chiefs' opening-drive touchdown with a 75-yard drive of their own that featured a heavy dose of Ezekiel Elliott, who ultimately punched it in from two yards out.
The Chiefs marched 62 yards on nine plays on the first drive of the third quarter to take their first lead of the afternoon. It was a two-yard pass to star tight end Travis Kelce that found paydirt for Kansas City.

A wild final minute-and-a-half has the Cowboys up 14-10 at the half. The Chiefs benefitted from a 15-yard penalty on Cowboys safety Byron Jones, and started their final drive of the half at the 37-yard line. With two seconds to play, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith found Tyreek Hill for a 57-yard touchdown as time expired.
The Cowboys put seven defenders on the goal line to prevent a touchdown, but Hill juked and maneuvered his way to the TD nonetheless.
Dallas had flipped the script in the final two minutes of the first half -- Dak Prescott was sacked at his own 13-yard line with 1:38 to play, and the Chiefs called a timeout in hopes of getting the ball back and getting some points before the half.
But a 21-yard pass to Dez Bryant and a 56-yard pass to Terrance Williams later, the Cowboys were threatening from the Kansas City 10-yard line. Dak Prescott escaped pressure and scrambled for a 10-yard touchdown with 13 seconds to play in the half.
A 38-yard Harrison Butker field goal put Kansas City on the board in the second quarter after a 44-yard drive earlier in the quarter.
The Cowboys kicked off the scoring with a seven-play, 61-yard drive near the end of the opening frame. Cole Beasley snagged a six-yard Dak Prescott pass for the touchdown.
The first four drives of the game between the two teams were uneventful, totaling a combined 31 yards.
