Rams running-back trio puts in promising effort vs. Cowboys

"Yeah, that was clear as day, in my opinion", Ramsey said after the game. He said Brown was an important part of the game plan, "but he was going to get a lot of opportunities in some of those later-down situations".

The Cowboys lost 20-17 and were particularly hurt by a penalty call on Michael Gallup in the final minute. I think that is pretty basic analysis, and it ensures we coldly look at a body of work without deluding ourselves about how a bad call from a referee, a bad decision by a coach or a bad break with an injury or a tipped pass can be blamed for everything. Right tackle Cam Erving and tight end Blake Jarwin both didn't return from knee injuries in the second quarter. I mean, you can see it in route-running where the depths aren't quite as - aren't what they should be.

Cowboys: Host the Atlanta Falcons in their home opener on Sunday. "That's what team football is all about". We were still able to move and get some progress, but we didn't get it done.

"I like the way the defense settled in the game".

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott wants to be fed.

Cam Akers rushed for 39 yards on 14 carries in the Rams second-round pick's National Football League debut. The Cowboys responded with a punt before the Rams missed a field goal on their next drive. The Cowboys responded with a nine-play, 83-yard scoring drive. Elliott capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run to give Dallas a 14-13 lead at halftime.

It was a debut to forget for Mike McCarthy as Cowboys head coach, as he came under fire for attempting to convert a fourth down earlier in the game rather than kick a field goal. Rams quarterback Jared Goff completed 20 of 31 passes for 275 yards and an interception. Robert Woods had six catches for a game-high 105 yards in the win.

Prescott completed 25 of 39 passes for 266 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

Elliott finished with 96 rushing yards on 22 carries and another 31 yards through the air with two total touchdowns.

"I judge myself off of wins", Prescott said.

Van Jefferson's first career reception was a lovely 31-yard grab in the second quarter, but it was the promising Rams rookie's only catch. "It was a loss and not a performance I'm proud of".
