Ezekiel Elliott could face six-game suspension

With 6:11 to play in the fourth quarter, backup field goal kicker Travis Coons converted for the home team to put the Rams up 13-10. "I think that his mindset has been such what he's said, what he's already released, I think that that's a pretty good perspective on what he's trying to do moving forward".

The Cowboys dink-and-dunked their way down the field, gaining 45 yards on nine plays. The ball was dislodged from Woods' grip, and DB Jeff Heath was almost able to pluck the ball out of the air, but the ball unfortunately fell to the ground and rolled into the end-zone where the Rams recovered for a touchdown. Prescott would go on to start every one of the Cowboys' regular-season games in 2016, having one of the best rookie years for a quarterback in National Football League history.

However, Mannion wasn't able to drive the Rams for a touchdown, which Goff did in a short night's work. The Rams will get their first taste of action for the year, looking to bounce back from a poor 4-12 year in 2016 in a lackluster NFC West.

The Cowboys do boast perhaps the NFL's best offensive line, which gives them a chance to have success in the running game even without Elliott.

Elliott's suspension stems from domestic violence allegations made against him past year in Ohio.

"That's up to the coaches how much I'm going to play", Prescott said of the team's upcoming game, via The Dallas Morning News. Should that happen, this incident could be one that we're revisiting at some point. "We knew that the investigation was ongoing, and whenever you prepare a football team, you prepare for injury". He completed eight of his 17 pass attempts for just 69 yards, as Dallas went three-and-out on its first three possessions of the game and punted on four of its first five. Rush also caught the eye of Garrett during the Hall of Fame Game last week, and his exceptional touch on the TD throw to Gathers was undeniably impressive. Tight end Rico Gathers, the former Baylor basketball player, again showed he has quality hands, finishing with a game-high 47 receiving yards and a touchdown, the second straight game he has reached the end zone.

BUTTERFINGERS: The Rams hung in despite alarming ball security. Rookie running back Justin Davis looked good while running for 70 yards in his college stadium, but he also fumbled twice. I don't take that lightly.

The Cowboys and Rams both have young players who have to step up immediately.
