Cowboys Snap Losing Streak with Monstrous Win Over Rams
The Dallas Cowboys used a commanding 28-7 lead at the half against the Los Angeles Rams and never looked back, coming out with a 44-21 win and snapped a three-game losing streak.
Maybe more importantly though, the Cowboys (7-7) looked, felt and played a lot better than the same team that lost four of their last five matchups.
The win sets up NFC East title implications next week at Philadelphia, where the Cowboys and Eagles will clash for the division title. Both teams are tied for first place in the division after Philadelphia outlasted Washington on Sunday (37-27).
The Dak & Zeke Show
Dallas showed a balanced approach throughout the game and picked apart the struggling Rams defense at AT&T Stadium.
Quarterback Dak Prescott did a nice job running the offense for the Cowboys and managing long-sustaining drives. He completed 15-of-23 passes for 212 yards and threw a pair of touchdown passes. He also helped Dallas control time of possession heavily over Los Angeles (36:06-23:54).
Running back Ezekiel Elliot carried the ball 24 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns. The Rams simply couldn’t stop him.
Oh and how about rookie tailback Tony Pollard? He finished the game leading the Cowboys with 12 carries for 131 rushing yards.
Rams offense fell behind, couldn’t catch up
Sunday was another struggling game for the Rams offense and the run game.
Los Angeles couldn’t get any sort of production on the ground from tailback Todd Gurley II. The Cowboys stifling defense held him to just 20 rushing yards and shut him down.
As for quarterback Jared Goff, he couldn’t get going either. Goff threw a costly interception in the first half and was sacked twice in the game.
600 ESPN El Paso, 915 Tours and Cowboys Packages teamed up to take SportsTalk on the road for a panel discussion and to document the experience out in Dallas.
And boy, what a trip.
Our tour bus left El Paso Friday night, giving us ample time to rest up and get excited for the weekend.
The Bill Bates tailgate kick-started our day on Sunday, featuring unlimited BBQ and drinks at a massive party setup outside AT&T Stadium. Because of the number of people and the size of the party, the tailgate was something I’ve never seen before.
The trip featured so many activities that you almost forgot about the game itself! Thanks to the team, I was upgraded to field-view seats and got to witness the game up close like never before.
There are still opportunities to watch a game with 915 Tours and Cowboys Packages, when they finish the season at home against the Redskins on Dec. 29.
