After fast start, Cowboys limp to loss vs. Rams

The Rams have given up an average of 33 points in the last two games against the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers.

Dak Prescott completed 20-of-36 passes for 252 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception and rushed three times for 25 yards in the Cowboys' Week 4 loss to the Rams.

Who: L.A. Rams vs.

The Rams defense once again forced a punt, but the Rams could not convert it into a touchdown.

Not including last Thursday's Color Rush game, for which the Rams wore bright yellow jerseys and alternate helmets, they had worn white jerseys for every game in 2017 (preseason included) before Sunday's game.

Center Travis Frederick was called for holding when Prescott ran in the first attempt.

Zuerlein's previous career high was five field goals in a 22-7 win over Denver in November 2014.

Which is one of the reasons the Cowboys have an edge in this game.

The defenses will feature National Football League sacks leader DeMarcus Lawrence of Dallas (6 1/2 sacks) and one of the most dominant interior rushers in Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald. The Rams defense is expected to dominate in 2017. Dez Bryant has three catches for 68 yards. A near mirror of his Los Angeles rival. And, when given a chance to drive the field and save the day, the Cowboys offense simply failed. On the Cowboys' ensuing possession, the Rams wrapped up Ezekiel Elliott about a yard shy of the first-down marker on fourth down, sealing the win and putting them at 3-1 to start the season. Still, if things work out correctly and the Rams are able to pull themselves together for a tough fight then who knows, a victory might really be in store for them.

Unfortunately for the Rams, they continued to trade field goals for touchdowns. Elliott is only averaging 3.5 yards per carry thus far, while the offensive line hasn't been as dominant, but look for OC Scott Linehan to make a concerted effort to establish the run early and often. When working together as a team, they will be really hard to stop.

As will how much of an impact the running backs will have. Slants or even a play action roll outs to start some series will put the Rams on their heels which will open up lanes for Zeke. Dallas marched 75 yards in less than five minutes and took a 24-13 lead when Prescott threw a 10-yard touchdown to receiver Brice Butler.
