Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams

Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams

Former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore's second preseason start Saturday night for the Dallas Cowboys didn't go almost as well as his first. Completing 54.6 percent of his passes, Goff only finished ahead of Cam Newton.

The third Rams quarterback to play Saturday, Dan Orlovsky, was 1 of 2 for 3 yards.

For example, the Cowboys most likely will have second-year starting quarterback Dak Prescott in the game for a little bit during the first quarter, but he's not the player many should concerned about watching right now in terms of his ability. But Dallas could only recover one of those drops, which came at their own 3-yard line, stopping a Los Angeles threat.

McFadden has not been known for durability or consistency in his National Football League career but is a two-time 1,000-yard rusher.

The Rams get on the board first on one of the most weird drives of the preseason thus far.

Garrett has made numerous starters sit out of the preseason games as a precaution and some of the top young players are still on their way back to recovery from injury. The Rams and Cowboys combined for nine fumbles, though only three of those would be lost on the night. But unlike the first preseason game, Moore did not fare too well in Los Angeles. His sole TD made the score 10-10 after the PAT.

Just a few minutes later, he would net the goal that would secure the win for Arsenal to start the season. To think, we have an entire opening weekend to go yet, as well as an entire season.

Aside from those standouts, the young Cowboys did provide a little excitement at the end of the game, albeit all for not, as they had two shots to add to their point total after L.A. took the lead in the fourth quarter with a 36-yard field goal.

"I am both surprised and disappointed by the NFL's decision today, and I strongly disagree with the League's findings", Elliott said in his statement, which was posted to social media. Goff and the starters got through a couple series and scored a touchdown, even if it was a bit unorthodox.

Next, the Rams play in Oakland on August 19 before returning home to play the LA Chargers at the LA Coliseum on August 26. The previous week, Moore was 12-of-17 for 182 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Regardless, for those die-hard Cowboys fans and committed draftniks, this game was chalk full of intriguing matchups, positional battles and standout individual plays.

The NFL Players' Association also issued a statement saying it is reviewing the league's decision and has been "in touch with Ezekiel and his representatives to consider all options".
