The game ended in controversial fashion. Michael Gallup made a 47-yard reception, as Jalen Ramsey defended him on the play.

The play was overturned with an offensive penalty. That eliminated the Cowboys chance to kick a game-tying field goal.

The Cowboys are now 1-7 in one-score games since the start of the 2019 season. Only the Cincinnati Bengals have a worse record, as they are now 0-9.

The Bengals added to that tally on Sunday with a three-point loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Rookie Joe Burrow guided his team down the field to set them up for an attempt at a game-tying field goal. However, Randy Bullock missed the field goal.

Cowboys quarterback finished the contest by going 1 of 7 for 11 yards. He also had a sack on a third down play. He had a 14.3% completion rate on third down in the game, which was the worst of his career.

Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott became the first player in team history to have a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown in a season opener. He now has seven games, where he has a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown in the same game, which is the most in franchise history.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff went 20 of 31 for 275 yards. He also had one interception.

Malcolm Brown had 18 carries for 79 yards and two touchdowns. Robert Woods had six receptions for 105 yards.

Prescott went 25 of 39 for 266 yards. He also has one touchdown pass.

Elliott had 22 carries for 96 yards and a touchdown. Amari Cooper had 10 receptions for 81 yards.

Besides Brown’s two touchdowns, Sam Sloman also made two field goals for the Rams.

Greg Zuerlein, a former Rams kicker, who signed with the Cowboys in the off-season, made a field goal, besides Elliott’s two touchdowns.
