Alfred Morris got some revenge on his former team and helped the Dallas Cowboys secure their first win of the 2016 season.

The Dallas Cowboys' running back returned to his old stomping ground on Sunday as the Cowboys took on his former team the Washington Redskins. He made his mark as he scored from four yards out late in the fourth quarter and the Cowboys held off the Redskins for a 27-23 win.

Morris spent the first four years of his career in Washington but the Redskins showed little interest in keeping him around this offseason. He wound up landing with the Cowboys after what he described as an "insulting" free agency period.

His touchdown capped off an 11-play, 80-yard drive that started after safety Barry Church picked off Redskins' quarterback Kirk Cousins in the endzone.

Rookie Dak Prescott was impressive in his second professional game, going 22-of-30 for 292 yards and had a six-yard touchdown run. He also connected with wide receiver Dez Bryant seven times for 102 yards.
