DAL 22, LAR 10: Another great defensive game for the Cowboys

    America's game of the week was a great one this Sunday, putting the 3-1 up against the 2-2 . What a game this was! The Cowboys shined on and managed to keep the Rams at 10 points for the whole game.

    To start the game, the Cowboys managed to force a fumble on and score early. However, due to the new , the extra point wasn't even kicked as the ball was snapped too early.

    After this impressive stand on defense, the made a great play themselves. The Cowboys blocked a punt that lead to a field goal. This led to a 9-0 lead, not even halfway through the first quarter.

    Before the end of the quarter, the Rams managed to get a 50+ yard pass that set them up for an easy field goal.

    had to exit the game after suffering a strain in his leg. Schultz had 1 target, but no yards or catches this game.

    scored a 75-yard touchdown catch that pushed the score to 9-10. Just when the Rams thought they were gaining control of this game, scored a 57-yard touchdown that took back the lead for Dallas.

    Halftime came, and the score was 16-10, Cowboys with an impressive lead in this game. Before it started, the Cowboys were 5-point underdogs coming into Los Angeles, now they lead the defending champs.

    In the next half, just when you thought the couldn't get any better, they do. No more points were scored for the Rams this game and the defense forced another fumble and an interception.

    Meanwhile, Dallas scored a field goal in the 3rd and 4th quarters. A final score of 22-10 arose from the unlikely team. Cowboys, still without Quarterback , managed to beat both the defending Super Bowl champions and the Runner-up within his absents.

    The Cowboys was electrifying to watch, Running back gained 78 yards while Pollard had 86 yards. A combined 164 yards with runs. This is one thing fans have been wanting more of and in this game the Cowboys finally delivered.

    The improbable Quarterback didn't have a great game with stats but yet still managed to chalk up another big win for his team. Rush threw for 102 yards and went 10/16. Cooper is now 5-0 as a starter.

    So, where to next? The Cowboys will be facing their most hated team, the next week. This next week will be a huge game for both teams and I can't wait to watch it.

    For now, Cowboy fans can appreciate a 4-1 start to the season thanks to the rock-solid defense and Cooper Rush's ability to win. How 'bout them Cowboys!

    Hey TS you’ve been writing some good articles but when it comes to calling the play by play you might ought to stay with the the post game stuff and forget about predicting the future before it happens! Ha. Another good win and a good job by our coaching staff ! Was it just me or did anyone else see their fight tackle holding MP on about every pass play?? Ole CR managed the game really well and how about our kicker!!? Ole Coach M is spot on: we are nobody’s underdog!


    Well, who would have thunk it. The Cowboys beat both Super Bowl teams from last year in their 4 straight game win streak without their starting QB. Well beyond most fans expectations!

    Defense and running games were in high gear, so CR didn’t need to throw a whole lot, but when required he made some very good throws.

    Great win, now on to Philly.
