It felt very Jones-like (with a nice dose of sarcasm) for taking most of the credit on the Rams moving back to Los Angeles.
One reason to be concerned: When Charles Brown somewhat surprisingly retired before camp started, the Cowboys had no choice but to name Chaz Green as their swing tackle. For the Rams this will be a chance to give the fans something they have been patiently waiting for for over 2 decades, some professional football. "This is great. You definitely can't complain". Although Bryant is one of the NFL's premiere receivers, it seemed as though the Cowboys could have went to him play after play and there would have been nothing the Rams could do about it. I have a favorite team and it's the Rams, regardless of what city they play in.
Whitehead caught the opening kickoff a yard deep in the end zone and returned it 101 yards for a touchdown. Starting quarterback Case Keenum looked alright in the team's first showing. I like Dak Prescott and I wish the kid all the best, but I just think people need to calm down and not anoint him as a God yet. The rookie quarterback for the Cowboys went 10 of 12 for 139 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason loss to the Rams.
The Rams' first touchdown in their new-old town, a 14-yard run by Benny Cunningham, brought the day's biggest roar, as though it finally made the move official.
Fortunately, we were able to learn a few things about the top three quarterbacks in Los Angeles, even in just one preseason game. His first pass was incomplete and second was intercepted.
Former North Texas linebacker Derek Akunne hit Goff on a blitz, forcing the ball to pop up in the air. Prescott only threw 23 interceptions in college against 70 touchdown passes in 4 years. No coincidence, Higbee is also Goff's roommate. Rookie quarterback and No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff was a little rusty in his National Football League debt, throwing an interception on his second pass of the game. Goff was shown taking a ride on the Goodyear Blimp, buying electric fans so offensive players could stay cool in their dorm rooms at UC Irvine, adjusting to a pro-style scheme, and not remembering where exactly the sun rises.
The Cowboys have praised Prescott's poise and composure since they selected him in the fourth round of this year's draft.
The Chiefs' Alex Smith drove his offense 49 yards on eight plays with running back Spencer Ware scoring on a 1-yard run on the game's first possession.
The Cowboys lost 28-24, but Prescott was the story for Dallas.
As a senior at TCU, Boykin passed for 3,574 yards and 31 touchdowns while rushing for an additional 612 yards and nine touchdowns in 11 games.
ESPN reports that Los Angeles pricing was in full effect for the game with "premium beer" selling for $16 and commemorative t-shirts going for $30. They got some pretty good push early in the game, but once Crawford and Thornton came out the entire defensive line was less effective.
