Anthony Hitchens with big fourth-down stop

ST. LOUIS -- Anthony Hitchens was the Dallas Cowboys middle linebacker by default on Sunday. Sean Lee was home watching because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered in May. Justin Durant was on the sideline with a groin injury. So was Rolando McClain. The Cowboys had nowhere else to go against the St. Louis Rams other than Hitchens, their fourth-round pick. And he came up with a game-changing play. After converting on a fourth-and-inches in the first half, the Rams pressed their luck on their first drive of the second half at the Dallas 15.
