Cowboys break touchdown drought to draw within 16-6

AP

Stop the presses: The Cowboys finally scored a touchdown. They had gone 26 consecutive drives without a touchdown before Rod Smith ran it in from 2 yards out with 12:48 remaining Thursday.

It cut the Chargers’ lead to 16-6 after Dak Prescott overthrew Terrance Williams on the two-point conversion.

The Cowboys’ last touchdown before Smith’s came two weeks ago against Atlanta, with 6:19 remaining in the first quarter. The 21-yard drive followed an Xavier Woods interception. Since then, opponents had outscored the Cowboys 80-9 before Smith’s score.

The Cowboys went 81 yards in nine plays, getting help with a 36-yard pass interference penalty on cornerback Trevor Williams.

Dallas, though, has not forced a Los Angeles punt today, and Philip Rivers already has passed for 370 yards.

  1. Breaking news: After being humiliated in consecutive weeks by teams without kickers, Jerry cuts his kickers in an effort to get better. Lol!

    Seriously the Cowboys have been so awful in some unique situations. I wouldn’t be surprised if the opposing kicker in their next game get’s hurt and the cowboys promptly forfeit the game.

  2. Listening to Romo break down the road to the playoffs(?) for Dallas is both laughable and sad at the same time.

    Dallas is about as subpar a team out there right now. 7-9 looks about right.

    Hoping that Philly will throw in the towel on the last game of the year by resting starters is a pathetic take.

    The Cowboys stink, and everyone watching them flounder around at home on Thanksgiving today can see it.

  3. Nothing is better than a cold turkey sandwich except seeing Dallas cowboys have it handed to them. Add some cranberry sauce with Romo and Nance getting in the Dallas excuse mode and say absolutely nothing on a 80-90 yard interception for a TD by the Chargers. Add some pumpkin pie not seeing Jerry and his family at end of game. Put whip cream on that pie with the Dallas fans booing at end of game. Happy Thanksgiving all, hope you enjoyed this game as much as I.
