Cowboys get narrow win before Elliott's return

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Ezekiel Elliott will return from suspension to a Dallas Cowboys team still in the playoff hunt thanks to a first down gained by the width of an index card and a fumble just shy of the end zone.

Dan Bailey kicked the go-ahead, 19-yard field goal after Dak Prescott converted a fourth-down sneak by the slimmest of margins and the Cowboys survived a last-minute drive by Oakland when Derek Carr fumbled just short of the end zone to give Dallas a 20-17 victory Sunday night in their final game without Elliott.

After losing the first three games with Elliott sidelined for his domestic violence suspension, the Cowboys (8-6) have won three straight to get back into contention heading into the final two-game stretch against Seattle and Philadelphia.
