Michael Gallup called for awful pass interference to cost Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott celebrates a touchdown

The Cowboys will look to avenge Sunday night's loss vs. the Falcons in Week 2.

"I mean, I love the aggressiveness", Prescott said. "I think that was a point in the game that, if we get that first down and we're able to punch it in the end zone, we're looking at a whole different ball game". "But at the same time you just got to keep going".

Jason Garrett's name was trending late Sunday night on Twitter. Gallup was called for offensive pass interference against Jalen Ramsey. In reality, his play was anything but as he simply dominated the Cowboys' offensive line from start to finish, putting constant pressure on Dak Prescott and generally destroying any of Dallas' carefully-laid plans. He also had three catches for 31 yards and a score in the loss.

The Cowboys played from behind nearly all of the first half because they couldn't defend the screen pass.

It was the first game of the post-Todd Gurley era for the Rams.


Aldon Smith had a sack and tied linebacker Jaylon Smith for the team lead with 11 tackles in his first game since November 15, 2015, with the Raiders.

Akers, a second-round draft pick, started the game, but it was Brown, a sixth-year pro, who got the most carries.

"The conservative play there is to kick the field goal, but I just felt really good about how we were moving the football", McCarthy said of a Cowboys offense that had driven 44 yards on eight plays to put themselves in position to take the lead with a touchdown. Erving and Jarwin received knee injuries. LB Leighton Vander Esch broke his collarbone and is headed to injured reserve with a chance to return. The Cowboys responded with a punt before the Rams missed a field goal on their next drive. The multi-time Defensive Player of the Year award victor was as disruptive as expected last night, but seeing it happen on tape is a different story entirely.

Though he only played the first quarter, Vander Esch tallied three tackles - indicative of how important he is to Dallas' defense. Poe's decision was notable because of how outspoken owner Jerry Jones has been to such gestures during "The Star-Spangled Banner".

"My teammates were telling me that they didn't want me to do it by myself, alone, because we're a team", Poe said.
