Dallas Cowboys snap out of funk, notch statement win vs. Los Angeles Rams
That changed rather quickly. Quarterback Dak Prescott played only five games due to a compound fracture and dislocation of his ankle in Week 5 against the New York Giants. The Cowboys still have numerous needs while their win-now window remains open. Their rushing offense finished in the bottom half of the league, with Elliott accounting for a mere rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns. Tony Pollard was next in line with rushing yards.
The trip was different this time, but the Cowboys made it to Los Angeles, where they continue to prepare for Sunday's game, which remains on schedule for now. The offensive coordinator said the aggressive decision to go for it on fourth down will happen again this year. Special team coordinator John Fassel evaluates the Cowboys' performance on all special teams units against the Rams. Defensive coordinator Mike Nolan explains why the Rams were able to find success on third down Sunday and discusses Aldon Smith's strong Cowboys debut.
