Gurley drives stake through Cowboys after Dak's accuracy wavers

Last season in seven games played, Goff tossed five touchdowns in 2016, so far in four games this season, he has seven and has thrown for as many yards this season (1,072) as he did all of previous year (1,089).

Dallas linebacker Sean Lee, the Cowboys' leading tackler, missed Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury he suffered in Week 3 at Arizona. This Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys at Arlington, Texas will be a valid test.

The Rams, newly relocated from St. Louis to their old home turf in Los Angeles, got a pass on last Sunday's protests. The offense, in simple words, is way better than any other team against the Rams so far.

At 3-1 and in first place in perhaps one of the toughest divisions in the National Football League in the NFC West, Goff isn't just doing this against lower-tier teams, but against playoff-caliber teams such as the Cowboys and up-and-coming hotshots such as Dak Prescott. It's only the Cardinals' second win since 2010 in a game in which they've allowed six or more sacks. "We haven't been good on first or second down". The Rams victories have come against two of the worst teams in the league, and in those victories, QB Jared Goff hasn't faced a legitimate pass rush or had to bring his team from behind. "There's a lot of football to be played". That means we'll see more of Blake Countess and maybe even rookie John Johnson. They were 2-1 and tied for first in the NFC East. I don't think there's any excuse for how we played tonightRams running back Todd Gurley on his 53-yard touchdown:"It was just a play we had all week". Goff has completed 70.4 percent of his passes in first-year coach Sean McVay's system for 817 yards and five touchdowns against just one interception.

The Rams notched yet another field goal at the end of an 8-play, 54-yard drive that took 3:15 off the clock when Zuerlein connected on a 30-yarder with 7:26 left in the third quarter, narrowing the score to 24-19.

The Cowboys led for the majority of this game and early on it seemed as though they had the game under control.

McVay's offense is showing some staying power, with 121 yards rushing and 94 receiving from Gurley and the same kind of balance Dallas showed while going 13-3 for the top seed in the NFC last season. It was exemplary of the versatile and effective offense inserted by McVay this season. Prescott's three passes ended with a touchdown. Kupp finished the game with five receptions for 60 yards. Signal-caller Dak Prescott has developed in the pre-snap phase of the game and remains physically gifted as both a passer and runner. The NFL is more fun when Todd Gurley is good. "I want to be here for the rest of my career".

Lawrence already has more sacks than any Dallas player last season, and is 1 1/2 shy of his career high.

Dallas' defense did take a shot of its own this week. "His blood pressure never raises and I think he's a special player".

The star Dallas running back got to hand the ball to his mother twice on his second score after the original TD ruling was reversed, with his mom kissing his facemask on the exchange that counted from her spot on the front row of a field-level box behind the end zone. "Really impressive as a whole". "There was one guy for Zeke to beat; when I threw the ball I thought he would do that".
