The Rams entered Sunday’s game with a 2-1 record and an impressive 35.7 points per game average. But their first two victories came against the Colts and the 49ers, so the Rams probably didn’t get the credit due.
But Los Angeles’ victory over the Cowboys — on the road — should send a statement that these aren’t the same ‘ol Rams.
The Rams dominated the second half, overcoming a 24-16 halftime deficit to win 35-30.
Greg Zuerlein kicked seven field goals, which makes him a contender for NFC Special Teams Player of the Week but is the only reason the Cowboys had a chance at the end. The Rams settled for field goals of 49, 44, 44, 30, 28, 43 and 33 yards.
Gurley was the game’s star with 23 carries for 121 yards and seven catches for 94 yards and a touchdown.
Goff completed 21 of 36 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns.
Dallas lost two turnovers, a fumble by Ryan Switzer and an interception by Prescott.
Prescott completed 20 of 35 passes for 252 yards and three touchdowns as well as the interception, and Elliott rushed for 85 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and caught four passes for 54 yards and a touchdown, but it wasn’t enough.
UPDATE 6:24 P.M. ET: Officials originally ruled Prescott’s turnover a fumble. Statisticians changed it to an interception after the game.
