For much of the first half, it appeared the were going to rout the young Rams on Sunday.

looked like his 2016-self, giving great effort and coming away with two important touchdowns. was being Dak Prescott, and the was holding up better than most had anticipated.

And, then, with a muffed punt the complexion of the entire game changed.

made a few key mistakes today, but none were greater than that second quarter fumble which resulted in seven points for the Rams. But, it isn't fair to put the entirety of the blame on Switzer.

Defensively, the Cowboys were flat-out bullied. Rams couldn't be stopped, going for over 200 yards from scrimmage during the 35-30 win. shredded the back-seven of the Cowboys, mostly because of poor play at for Dallas.

When the Cowboys needed to make plays, they simply couldn't. When they had to come through on a two point conversion, they instead came away with a holding and a dropped pass in the end zone.

When they needed a stop, or to create a turnover, they gave up 35 points in their own building. And, when given a chance to drive the field and save the day, the Cowboys simply failed.

Yes, this loss stings hard, but the worst part isn't that they lost. It's that they had the game under total control and let the Rams back in it.

With the loss the Cowboys fall to 2-2. They will host and the next Sunday afternoon.
