The Cowboys got the win they needed on Sunday night, taking down the Giants, 20-13, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Dallas improved to 1-1 on the season, avoiding a dreadful 0-2 start.

The offense for the Cowboys, which struggled mightily in a Week 1 loss to the Panthers, was improved against New York. Dak Prescott threw a 64-yard touchdown pass on the first drive of the game. Dallas had a long, time-consuming touchdown drive to seal the game late, too.

There are still questions about the Cowboys' passing attack moving forward, though. Prescott, outside of that 64-yard bomb, threw for only 96 more yards. No wide receiver had more than four catches. Tavon Austin, who caught the 64-yard pass, was the only wideout with more than 33 yards receiving.

So, the Cowboys are certainly still looking to upgrade the position and the passing game. They attempted to do that this morning.

Brice Butler, who spent the 2016 and '17 NFL seasons with the Cowboys, is re-signing with the team. He announced the news on Twitter.

"Wow, never thought this would go down, but God’s will always wins! Dallas y’all ready to make this thing happen!?!! I’m backkkkk!!" he wrote.

Butler had 31 catches for 536 yards and 6 touchdowns in two seasons with the Cowboys. He has 73 career catches for nearly 1,200 yards and 8 touchdowns.

He could develop into a favorite target for Prescott, who was optimistic about the Cowboys' chances moving forward after Sunday's win.

From the vibe of this team, it feels a lot like the 2016 team,” Prescott said today, per ESPN. “Just that chemistry, that the guys want to be around each other, guys hanging out in the locker room, going to dinner with each other. We have a team that has each other's back and when you have each other's back and stick together the way we are, we've got a chance to do what we want.”

The Cowboys will look to improve to 2-1 on the season this weekend. Dallas is set to travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. Kickoff between the Cowboys and the Seahawks is set for 4:25 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on FOX.
