Dallas Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott's Case To Be Heard In Federal Court

The team racked up 133 rushing yards in the two quarters, which was more than Dallas had gained for an entire game coming into this matchup.

Todd Gurley scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 53-yard catch-and-run, and Greg Zuerlein kicked a career-high seven field goals. Those four turnovers directly led to 21 of the Packers' points, which shows how costly each was.

Thanks to a 66-yard return by Pharoh Cooper on the ensuing kickoff, LA started in great position at the Dallas 35. Two of the Rams first three games have hit the over. Lawrence was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance and wasn't the least bit impressed. The scoring had been limited to nine field goals on an ugly afternoon in the desert before Palmer directed a seven-play, 75-yard drive with 1:52 to play. Bailey's extra point moved the lead to 17-6.

They forced Dallas to punt on their only two drives of the third quarter. The Padres (71-91) lost for the sixth time in seven games as they concluded their seventh straight losing season with a modest improvement of three more wins than last season.

Not to be outdone, LA scored on the last play of the half when Zuerlein blasted a 44-yard field goal, narrowing the Ram deficit to 24-13 at intermission.

As has been discussed ad nauseam, the Rams' offensive line struggled all season to provide protection for then rookie quarterback Jared Goff, and the second year stud running back Todd Gurley. It was one of those plays that you were like "are you going to score in practice, or will you actually score it in a game?' Those don't happen very often". The Rams will get their points and make it a game, but Dallas should prevail. One seemingly obvious rout had to be yesterday's battle between the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams, which, back before we knew any better, clearly looked like it would be a Cowboys' runaway win. Bryant's second score was a 15-yarder when he carried several defenders into the end zone with a helpful push from center Travis Frederick. But I have to tip my hat to the Rams because they made the necessary adjustments at halftime, and the Cowboys were stuck in neutral. Unfortunately, on the third and final try, the attempt was no good.

The 35-30 win ended an eight-game home winning streak for Dallas. Signal-caller Dak Prescott has developed in the pre-snap phase of the game and remains physically gifted as both a passer and runner. It is still unclear whether cornerbacks Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring) and Nolan Carroll (concussion) will be cleared to play.

The Cowboys (2-2) are already a loss shy of their total from last season when Prescott, the 135th pick in Goff's draft, was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year for the top-seeded team in the NFC.

From a pass rush perspective, the Cowboys will welcome David Irving back with open arms this week because DeMarcus Lawrence can not continue to do this alone. The Cowboys offense will need to keep pace with what Aaron Rodgers can achieve against their defense, or the Cowboys will be staring at a 2-3 record heading into their bye week. After the worst rookie season in National Football League history, Goff is now near the top of the leaderboard in every important statistical category for quarterbacks. Just get it together.
