Goff, Prescott meet after wildly different rookie seasons

Goff, Prescott meet after wildly different rookie seasons

"I thought we gave ourselves chances coming back after they had gone ahead, but ultimately they did more to win the game".

Well you don't have to be a genius to figure out why the Cowboys got stunned 35-30 by the Los Angeles Rams Sunday afternoon. ESPN notes that in the Super Bowl era, there have been only two other teams to allow that many in each of the first four games in a season - the 2005 San Francisco 49ers and 2012 New Orleans Saints. That's when things changed.

Goff passed for 255 yards and two touchdowns, keeping Los Angeles constantly on the move and outpacing Prescott's Cowboys. Those four turnovers directly led to 21 of the Packers' points, which shows how costly each was.

Addition by subtraction. We knew the Rams would get better just by the fact that Jeff Fisher wasn't their head coach this season.

"It's frustrating. We come out, we're on fire and we're feeling good". OLB Mark Barron intercepted Dak Prescott in the fourth quarter.

DUAL-THREAT GURLEY: Gurley joined Hall of Famers Jim Brown (1958, 1963) and Emmitt Smith (1995) as the only National Football League players with at least 575 scrimmage yards and seven touchdowns in the first four games. He capped off the series by hauling in a swing pass to the left side and taking it the final 10 yards with a dive into the end zone. This time it was Alfred Morris doing the heavy lifting.

Los Angeles will host the Seahawks in Week 5 and then the Cardinals in Week 7 with a date in Jacksonville in-between.

IL to Allow Medicaid Abortions
David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, said Rauner should consider running in the gubernatorial primary as a Democrat. The restrictions were signed into law previous year by Vice President Mike Pence, then the governor of Indiana.

GOP Plan Cuts Corporate, Individual Taxes and Repeals the Estate Tax
They've agreed on the framework for the tax overhaul, while committees will have some flexibility to fill in the details. A quarter of the country thinks the Trump tax plan will help both groups equally, and the rest are undecided.

Roy Moore Wins Alabama's GOP Senate Primary
President Donald Trump also campaigned for odd , holding a rally in the state on Friday, as did Vice President Mike Pence . Moore, meanwhile, has reveled in casting himself as an outsider. "They think you're nothing but rubes", Bannon said there.

He's has done absolutely everything his team has needed of him, and more - and in the process, he's set himself up to have a season for the record books.

Maybe the Los Angeles Rams are for real. The receiving corps, which added Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp this offseason, also looks risky. The computer is taking the Cowboys to cover the spread, and the under on the point total.

EAGLES 26, CHARGERS 24: Carson Wentz passed for 242 yards, LeGarrette Blount rushed for 136, and the Eagles extended their promising start to the season.

"It's just knowing where I'm going with the ball, having a good idea where I'm going with the ball so that my feet can be in tune with my mind", Prescott added. Prescott threw an interception on the second attempt, but a defensive holding penalty called against the Rams gave the Cowboys another try. The offense was rolling. Even worse, the Rams offense found its stride. Zuerlein scored 23 points (seven field goals and two extra points), which is the second-highest total for a Ram in a single game. Watkins leads the Rams with 194 yards receiving and has two touchdown grabs, along with Gurley. Neither qualifies as a Super Bowl contender, leaving many to question the validity of the Los Angeles' strong start.

There may not be season-ending games in Week 4 - unless you're the New York Giants - but there surely are statement games. It was as if the defense wasn't lined up correctly even though everyone in the building knew what the Rams were going to do with Austin in the backfield.

Just when all seemed lost, though, the Dallas offense finally found its legs. And when you include the tight ends, they need the group as a whole to get hats on hats and open up more running lanes. The score came when Prescott found a wide-open James Hanna, who rumbled in for the 28-yard touchdown, his first career score. Standout defensive tackle Aaron Donald appears ready to begin making an impact after his training-camp holdout caused him to miss the season opener and record just five tackles and one sack in the ensuing two games.
