Leading Off (11/25/16)

Cowboys win tenth in a row and Black Friday Shopping starts early.

Cowboys Win Tenth in a Row. America’s Team continued its winning streak yesterday, beating the Washington Redskins 31-26. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott led the team to its tenth straight win with Prescott accounting for two touchdowns and Elliott running for a pair of scores. Dez Bryant and Washington’s Josh Norman had to be separated after the game, which included several heated moments between the two.

Plano Gas Leak Prompts Street Closure and Brief Evacuation. About 80 homes were evacuated Thanksgiving morning after a resident reported a strong odor around 7 a.m. near Spring Creek Parkway and Alma Drive. The Plano Police Department closed Spring Creek Parkway from Rainier Road to Chase Oaks Boulevard, and temporary shelter was set up for the evacuated residents. The leak was capped around 2 p.m., and people were allowed back into their homes.

Black Friday Shoppers Get an Early Start. Not everyone was watching the Cowboys’ victory. Shoppers started lining up outside of Cityplace Target around 11 a.m. yesterday, with Best Buy and Toys ‘R Us seeing similar lines. I’ll wait for Cyber Monday.
