After fast start, Cowboys limp to loss vs. Rams

If you're tuning in for the Rams' Week 4 contest against the Dallas Cowboys, you'll probably notice that something is ... off.

Goff has passed for 817 yards entering the game against the Cowboys, completing 70.4 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and one interception, and running back Todd Gurley is showing improvement too from a year ago with 63 rushes for 241 yards (four touchdowns) and 13 receptions for 140 yards and two touchdowns. Witten also mentioned that he is four years older than the coach of the #Los Angeles Rams, Sean McVay.

McVay was named the Redskins offensive coordinator in 2014, which just happened to the same season that Rod Marinelli was named the defensive coordinator in Dallas.

"You get picked No. 1 for a reason and he's had a lot of success early this year, so he's good", said Prescott of Goff. He has the league's third-best rating while Prescott languishes in the middle of the pack (88.9) a year after setting an NFL rookie record at 104.9. Dallas got another shot after a defensive holding call.

What time, channel are the Rams and Cowboys on?

Conventional wisdom will tell you settling for field goals all afternoon is not a way to win a game. He had a 44-yarder on the final play of the first half, and the long was from 49.

Garrett sidestepped a question on whether the Cowboys would do something similar Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams in their first home game since the display.

A defense that was playing without its leader, Sean Lee, got exposed as the game went on, giving up scoring drives on five straight possessions in the second half. The 1-yard plunge came after a review overturned a touchdown.

Then Goff connected with Gurley down the seam on the right side, which the running back took in for a 53-yard touchdown. Dak Prescott threw two touchdowns and ran (actually flipped) for another score. After this week, the Cowboys aren't scheduled to play another game in the early time slot until their Week 17 finale at Philadelphia, which could get end up getting flexed to primetime. Both plays were in the second quarter. Last season, he appeared in 15 regular-season games for the playoff-bound Cowboys en route to registering 145 total tackles, one fumble recovery and one pass defense. Owner Jerry Jones joined the players in a kneel before the national anthem in response to President Donald Trump's comments and protests across the league.

Across the field, some Rams players locked arms, with defensive end Robert Quinn raising a fist in the air. Dallas' Dez Bryant also has two TDs, but just 114 yards on 11 catches.

PREDICTION: The Rams are an improved team but their wins are against the Colts and 49ers and they are stepping up in class with the visit to the Cowboys.
