Sean’s Scout: Cowboys Walk-Off Chargers with Parsons at DE, Moore’s Game Plan

The Cowboys kicking game was the deciding factor in their week one loss at Tampa Bay, but 's 56 yard field goal as time expired in Los Angeles on Sunday sent the Cowboys home at 1-1 with a win they earned without several starters.

Coming into the game, the biggest mismatch for the Cowboys should have been at RT against Chargers DE . Steele held up well in his second game replacing , and 's didn't allow Bosa to wreck the game.

Here are a few other takeaway's from the win that ties the Cowboys atop the East with the Eagles and WFT.

  • Not only did the Cowboys block Joey Bosa well to give time to throw, but they used their speed on the to get Bosa in space. carried the ball 13 times, just one shy of his career high from of 2019. Pollard scored the Cowboys first touchdown on a jet sweep where Bosa rushed hard inside, creating space for Pollard to follow a block into the end zone. was also used in motion to block Bosa, allowing the Cowboys to keep their pass catchers on the field while still holding up in protection.


  •   continues to impress with his ability to take the ball away, something the Cowboys have not had at in a long time. The best trait a CB can have is the ability to put a negative play behind them, and that's exactly what Diggs did against Keenan Allen in the first quarter. One play after Allen got behind Diggs for a 22-yard catch, Diggs undercut his crossing route for the takeaway. was also in on the play, dropping to the right depth in coverage so Diggs could trail Allen.



  • The Cowboys made it clear throughout and the that would have a role on this , and he stepped up in this game. Kearse made plays on the second and third levels, and had an interception taken away by a questionable pass interference . Even when is ready to play again, I expect Kearse to be on the field – especially if Parsons continues to play well at .

The Cowboys will begin their schedule next Monday against the Eagles. Through two weeks, they've proven to be flexible in their game plans with the bigger picture of a 17 game schedule in a weak division in view. This win against the Chargers wasn't the cleanest, but building on it to put a complete game together in their home opener would build momentum.

The Eagles lost to the 49ers 17-11 at home on Sunday.

It was so bad last week and so this week it had to be hard to kick that Field Goal with a bag on his head! If he keeps it going, maybe they will let him twist it around so he can see out the eye holes! Great kick square head!
