Following the Dallas Cowboys 13-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday night, here are seven Cowboys who shined the brightest in the team’s second preseason contest.
Watching the Dallas Cowboys second preseason matchup of the year, this time against the Los Angeles Rams, it’s understandable if you came away with a sour feeling. In a defensive battle full of mistakes, penalties and fumbles galore; neither team played very good football.
And no one would blame you if you simply expected more, especially from the Cowboys’ offense. That’s likely due to the play of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott from the previous year.
In this exact same stage last preseason, Prescott wowed a national audience completing 10 of his 12 passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns. It was a coming out party for the future NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
On Saturday, the feeling was quite different. Especially since the Cowboys struggled to put three points on the board in the entire first half.
And although the defense was able to cause five fumbles, Dallas was only able to recover one of them. My overall feeling…meh.
And for goodness’ sake, would someone please turn up DeMarcus Ware’s microphone? I’m sure the future Hall of Famer did very well in his TV analyst debut, but I couldn’t hear it.
Regardless, for those die-hard Cowboys fans and committed draftniks, this game was chalk full of intriguing matchups, positional battles and standout individual plays.
So, with no further ado, here are my seven Cowboy players who shined brighter than everyone else in their second preseason game of the year.
