Cowboys lose after dormant second half vs. Rams: 5 things to know

Cowboys lose after dormant second half vs. Rams: 5 things to know

In just three games, the Rams have crossed the 40-point threshold as many times as they did during the entirety of the Jeff Fisher era.

Rams running back Todd Gurley is tied with Kansas City rookie Kareem Hunt for most touchdowns with six.

The Los Angeles Rams (2-1), led by quarterback Jared Goff, meet the Dallas Cowboys (2-1), led by quarterback Dak Prescott, in a Week 4 National Football League game and NFC matchup on Sunday, October 1, 2017 (10/1/17), at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Cowboys seeking longest winning streak in series at four games. Quarterback Carson Palmer has been erratic at times this season, but offensive line struggled and he was under constant duress against the Cowboys.

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.

The Cowboys reached midfield in the final minute, but Elliott's catch inside the Rams 40 on fourth-and-10 was about a yard short of the first down, clinching LA's win. Sullivan was not a starter in 2016 with the Redskins, but in 2015, he allowed just 2.5 sacks with the Vikings. In that game, Kupp caught both passes thrown his way while finishing with 17 yards, but also the 49ers' defense deserves some credit for making it hard on the wideout to get open. Dak Prescott was being Dak Prescott, and the defense was holding up better than most had anticipated.

In the Rams' defense, their uniforms are a work in progress. The Rams are leading the league with 107 points scored, rank second in yards per play with 6.6, and have the fifth most passing yards per game. On the game's first play, Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott completed a 36-yard pass to receiver Dez Bryant, over cornerback Trumaine Johnson, who also committed pass interference on the play. This leaves the Cowboys with a record of 2-1 while the Cardinals at 1-2. The Rams have been better than people think and if they can get Gurley going here and keep the clock ticking I think the Rams can keep this close.

It's been widely reported that the Rams will overhaul their uniforms when they move into their new Inglewood stadium in 2020. The offense kicked the go-ahead field goal on the resulting possession. Durant played 32 snaps against the Cardinals after playing a combined three snaps the first two weeks of the season.

Though giving up 42 points to Denver in Week 1 wasn't pretty, the Dallas defense has taking meaningful steps since past year. The Rams got the ball to start the second half but went three-and-out.

Once again, though, the Rams' defense couldn't make a stop. Gurley has taken advantage of this fact, and has rushed for 241 yards and four touchdowns. Dallas mustered only those six points in the second half.
