10 Predictable headlines from the Cowboys loss to the Los Angeles Rams

10 Predictable headlines from the Cowboys loss to the Los Angeles Rams

Whether justified or blown out of proportion, here’s what the world will be saying after the Cowboys fell to 2-2. Let’s just say it, losing sucks. The Cowboys lost to the Los Angeles Rams and we’re all pretty miffed about it. Beyond not being fun, losing also tends to raise panic levels (albeit sometimes rightly so). Losing spurs questioning, criticizing, and other things ending in “ing” that are likely not good for those seemingly responsible for the loss. A 30-35 loss to the Rams is a tough pill to swallow, and Cowboys fans are going to have to digest it over the course of this...

Rams second-half adjustments included not blitzing Cowboys QB Dak Prescott as much

Rams second-half adjustments included not blitzing Cowboys QB Dak Prescott as much

They still got pressure, but the Rams decided it was better to contain Dak in the pocket. The Dallas Cowboys offense was a well-oiled machine in the first half of their game against the Los Angeles Rams. In the second half, it was a totally different story. As has been noted many times, the game was a tale of two halves. Dak Prescott’s stats are demonstrative of the dichotomy. In the first half, Prescott was 11 of 15 for 155 yards and two touchdowns. In the second half, he was 9 for 21 for 97 yards and one touchdown. What changed? The Rams blitzed less in the second half and that was...

Dak and Zeke report: A tale of two halves in Cowboys’ loss to Rams

Dak and Zeke report: A tale of two halves in Cowboys’ loss to Rams

The Cowboys’ offense started off well, but an inexplicable stall in the third quarter allowed the Rams to blow past the Cowboys for the win. What to make of this game? Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott didn’t play badly. They just didn’t play well enough to win when their defense wasn’t stopping the Rams and the Cowboys committed the two turnovers in the game. If you look at the other side, Jared Goff had slightly better stats than Dak, while Todd Gurley’s stats blew away Zeke’s even though Zeke had 139 yards from scrimmage. (Goff finished 21 of 36 for 255 yards, two TDs, no...

Rams edge Cowboys: Five stats that tell the story

Rams edge Cowboys: Five stats that tell the story

Breaking down the Cowboys disappointing loss into five basic stats. We’re now four games into the NFL season and we can affirmatively state the 2017 Dallas Cowboys are not the same team we saw in 2016. Following a disappointing 35-30 home loss to the youthful Los Angeles Rams the team sits at 2-2. While the record is not as good as hoped at this point, the most disconcerting development is the team’s lack of an identity. Let’s look at five statistics that reveal how the Rams defeated the Cowboys. Average starting position Los Angeles enjoyed a +12 yard advantage in...

Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams: Game Ball of the Week

Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams: Game Ball of the Week

Who earned this week’s game ball after a disappointing loss? Well, that was a disappointing way to lose a game. After taking an eight point lead into the break, the Dallas Cowboys failed to step on the Rams’ throats and put them away. Jared Goff had his way with Dallas’ secondary, Todd Gurley accounted for more than 200 yards of total offense, and the Cowboys’ offense became stagnant in the third quarter. That said, there were a couple of bright moments. Dak’s incredible plays in which he avoided Aaron Donald and hit Dez Bryant for a big gain and later when he rolled out of the...

10 thoughts on the Cowboys disappointing loss to the Rams

Things were going great until they weren’t. As great as it feels to watch our Dallas Cowboys win a football game, it’s equally disheartening when we watch them fall apart. What started out to be a fun game to watch, turned into frustration when the offense suddenly stopped working and the defense gradually allowed the lead to erode away. The aftermath left fans with a disappointing 35-30 defeat as we watched the Cowboys fall to 2-2 on the year. The Rams offense has been really good this year and didn’t miss a beat against this sometimes-suspect Cowboys defense. That leaves us with a...
