nonstops in the red zone

Dallas made four trips into the red zone (inside the opponent’s 20-yard line) on Sunday, and each time, the Vikings defense managed to do next to nothing. Three times, the Cowboys punched in a touchdown. The clock stopped them the other time, forcing them to settle for a short field goal before the end of the first half. (Dallas also skipped the red zone entirely on one TD, a 42-yard romp by Tony Pollard in the fourth quarter.) Here are the Cowboys’ successful red-zone trips:
