We’ve got a new show (sort of), and the new show needs new features. Here’s a new one, which we’ll do every Tuesday on PFT PM.

Charean Williams and I will pick a game to rewatch, we’ll rewatch it, and we’ll talk about it for 20 minutes or so.

This week, Charean picked the Sunday night game between the Cowboys and the Rams.

The video is attached. Who was the best player on the field? Who had a game to forget? What was the key play or sequence? Who, on second review, was better or worse than previously believed?

Check it out and let us know what you think. Next week, I get to pick the game.

PFT PM returns tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. ET. Ten hours before that, PFT Live gets rolling. Both shows debut exclusively on Peacock, NBC’s new streaming service.

  1. I know what stood out to me. Aaron Donald and the devastation he wreaked against that Cowboy line. That includes Zack Martin.

    In a career full of terrific performances, they’re going to be showing highlights from this game when Donald is inducted into Canton.

  2. They should give an academy award to Ramsey for the obvious acting in OPI call on Gallup. That would have put Dallas inside the 15. A much better chance that they win.

  3. Not tying the game in the 4th quarter, instead of inexplicably going for THREE YARDS on 4th down, felt an awful lot like the ghost of Jason Garrett haunting the Cowboys once again. Just an insane notion when the Rams D had been good all night.

  4. That game featured a vanilla offense. It looked more like McCarthy getting a gauge for his players in situations. It was a preseason game at best.

    Vanilla is the calling card of a McCarthy offense.


    Good lord, please don’t tell me that. We’ve had vanilla under Garrett for a decade. More of that and I will lose my mind…

  6. Like most games, the tv ratings were way down for this one.


    Its about perspective isnt it? The Bucs-Saints game was the most watched TV show since the Super Bowl. So, even if the viewership was down, it still out performs every other TV show out there. That means advertisers will still be willing to spend.

    In addition, the total number of general TV viewers (all TV shows) for the major networks has been dropping for the last 6 years….there was a 20% drop in viewers from 2014 to 2019. So, in general, people are watching less TV.

    I know a lot of folks are rooting for the league to fail. Right now, its still a cash cow.

  7. That 4th and 3 play call was simply awful. That play ran as it was designed–meaning the receiver is supposed to just find his way through all the traffic, hopefully getting lost. But that also means it’s not a precise route thus you cannot be sure he’s going to be past the sticks when he finally catches the ball. Seems pretty obvious in hindsight but don’t call plays on 4th down that can work exactly as designed and still result in you not getting the first down.
