The NFL Dallas Cowboys team went all in against Los Angeles Ram and gave the crowd a show to watch by scoring 17-3 in their first quarter.

It was a big matchup of each side of the trenches, but the Rams were able to claw their way back to a 33-17 lead before quarterback Matthew Stafford was injured and replaced by Brett Rypien according to NFL news.

Dallas had the game wrapped up by the conclusion of the third quarter, thanks to backup quarterback Cooper Rush.

Darrell Henderson was the Rams’ primary running back once again, this time alongside Royce Freeman, pulling in three receptions for 54 yards and rushing for 31 yards on 12 carries. The Cowboys’ defensive line spent the whole game in the backfield, shutting down the Rams’ passing and rushing attempts regardless of who was on the field.

CeeDee Lamb of the Dallas Cowboys had the dominant performance we’ve been waiting for, with 12 receptions for 158 yards and two touchdowns over nearly three-quarters of action before Dallas went to its reserves.

Aaron Donald from Dallas Cowboys pushing through Los Angeles Rams players

Defensive standout: Rams superstar inside defensive Aaron Donald appeared to be playing by himself, recording two sacks in a game in which the Cowboys averaged 6.1 yards per play without even attempting to move the football in the fourth quarter. Safety Early in the game, Jordan Fuller intercepted Dak Prescott, but the Rams were unable to make this a contest.

Cowboys cornerback DaRon Bland maintained his outstanding 2023 season by intercepting another pass and returning it for a touchdown. Bland has four interceptions on the season and has filled in for top cornerback Trevon Diggs. Dallas limited the Rams’ rushing attack to 3.8 yards per carry and Cooper Kupp to four receptions for 21 yards.

 

Rookie Standout: Puka Nacua, the Rams’ rookie wide receiver, was mainly held in check on his route to three receptions for 43 yards.

As he recovers from an injury, Cowboys rookie tight end Luke Schoonmaker recorded a 13-yard reception. Dallas could have a good one-two punch of young tight ends if Schoonmaker can continue to grow as a blocker and pass-catcher alongside second-year tight end Jake Ferguson, who added four grabs for 47 yards and a touchdown.
