LAR 35, DAL 30: Cowboys Fail To Close Out Rams At Home

Jared Goff LA Rams

Since entering National Football League in 2013, WR Tavon Austin only player with 10-plus TDs receiving (12), eight-plus rushing (8) and three punt return scores. The most obvious is the jet sweep itself, but these next few examples will involve running back Todd Gurley.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Starting fast was a key part of the Dallas Cowboys' preparation going into Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams. The Cowboys, known as "America's Team", made headlines Monday night when they knelt as a team - including owner Jerry Jones - before rising for the anthem in a game against the Cardinals in Glendale, Ariz. But Johnny Hekker boomed a 62-yard punt and pinned the Cowboys back at their 14-yard line, and they were forced to punt for the first time in the game. Ezekiel Elliott had nine carries for 45 yards in the first quarter, and added a second-quarter touchdown through the air.

"I didn't sense a guy that was wanting to put any blame on anybody other than take the accountability himself and just look at it as I'm challenged in the right way to respond and return in Year 2", McVay said. As it is, only the Cowboys have kept up their end of the bargain, making the postseason five times since 2006 to a whopping zero times for the Rams.

When the team unveiled its new uniforms in March, it made clear it would wear white at home in 2017 (like it did in 2016) but did not promote its away look in the event of a game like Sunday's in Dallas, where the Cowboys traditionally wear white jerseys at home.

The Los Angeles Rams are three games into their sophomore season back in Los Angeles, and it is impossible to ignore the nearly immediate improvement this young team has made.

Players, coaches and staff held several meetings, and many of those people joined in the display.

It was a dramatic turnaround for the Rams' defense, which was bad early on. Rams QB Jared Goff was first overall pick in last year's draft, Cowboys' Dak Prescott was 135th (fourth round) before becoming NFL Offensive Rookie of Year.

Most recently, the Cowboys have won the past three games between the pair, with a 34-31 win coming in 2014. Rams will most probably not be able to stop them. Then an incomplete pass was nullified by defensive holding, setting Dallas up for a third two-point play - this time from the seven-yard line. Zuerlein hit from 44 yards to pull the Rams within 10-6, but on the next play of the ensuing drive, Dallas' Alfred Morris ran 70 yards. Defensively, the Cowboys are yielding 20.7 points and 315.0 total yards (227.7 in passing and 87.3 in rushing) per game. The Rams got the ball to start the second half but went three-and-out.

Goff was 21 of 36 for 255 yards and two touchdowns. Dallas mustered only those six points in the second half.
