Decoding Kellen Moore Third down the difference-maker in a disappointing loss

So this isn't the Hollywood ending that anybody pictured on a landmark night for professional football's return to Los Angeles. The defence's first game under rookie replacement co-ordinator Brandon Staley wasn't a masterpiece, but it was barely enough to make McVay 4-0 in season openers. I think that is pretty basic analysis, and it ensures we coldly look at a body of work without deluding ourselves about how a bad call from a referee, a bad decision by a coach or a bad break with an injury or a tipped pass can be blamed for everything.

Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein then connected on a 33-yard field goal with 1:54 remaining in the quarter to cut the Rams lead to three points, but Dallas couldn't rally in the scoreless fourth quarter. "But at the same time you just got to keep going".

Running backs Malcolm Brown, Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson combined for 124 yards rushing, and Brown scored two touchdowns in the Rams' 20-17 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

"I judge myself off of wins", Prescott said. We are playing a team that has experience. "You don't see that at a critical part of the game". "Our defense played a lot of snaps".

Dallas managed only 15 net yards on its final 10 plays of the game.

"I mean, I love the aggressiveness", Prescott said.

The Cowboys punted on their first drive of the second half. We had a couple costly penalties, that we have to be able to avoid moving forward, but overall, I liked the way we came out.

Most encouragingly, the Rams stopped Dallas on nine of its 12 third downs and twice on fourth down, improving in an area that caused ample concern past year.

The game also was one of the many National Football League clashes played Sunday without fans in attendance as a coronavirus pandemic safety precaution. "It wasn't the only play that decided the game, but obviously the guy made a great play". "We're always looking for ways to improve".

"I was surprised there was a call either way", McCarthy said.

Brown totaled 110 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns on 21 touches for the Rams.

Even NBC's announcing team disagreed with the call.

"If they hadn't have called that, I would have been really upset", Ramsey said.

After calling a conservative play on third down, McCarthy curiously went for it on fourth and 3 from the Los Angeles 11 with about 12 minutes to play.

The failure was more about execution and rookie receiver CeeDee Lamb running his route to shallow. "My mindset was trying to create more momentum".
