Cowboys’ first loss came down to 2 plays 10 other takeaways from Sunday night

But what really turned his stomach and he can't let go was an offensive pass interference penalty against receiver Michael Gallup, negating a 47-yard gain and a first down at Rams 19 with 21 seconds to go. Dallas also potentially lost tight end Blake Jarwin to an ACL injury.

"Obviously a tough loss", Jones said. "We're always looking for ways to improve".

Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown and caught another scoring pass, but the Cowboys began a season of high expectations by losing three starters to injury in the first half and then failing to mount a late comeback in a scoreless fourth quarter for both teams.

"I thought our offense slowed up in the second half, but the defense picked up the slack", Rams coach Sean McVay said.

The game also was one of the many National Football League clashes played Sunday without fans in attendance as a coronavirus pandemic safety precaution. I feel like we did that for the most part. "That was clear as day, in my opinion". "There is ups and downs, ebbs and flows of the game that we had to overcome and I feel like we did a good job". So, our timing, we had a number of timing things that we just got to keep working, and it will come together, and that's a normal process.

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

Suga launches new LDP leadership
There is some belief that Suga may only serve for the rest of Abe's term as prime minister, which was to end in September 2021. Suga is known to have helped smooth out differences by keeping close ties with a centrist coalition partner, Komeito.

Rookie kicker Samuel Sloman put his first career field goal attempt off the left upright from 29 yards out, but he recovered to hit two field goals for the Rams. Elliott capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run to give Dallas a 14-13 lead at halftime.

The Cowboys punted on their first drive of the second half.

There is also his questionable decision to pass up a potential game-tying field goal for a failed gamble on fourth down early in the fourth quarter. Rams quarterback Jared Goff completed 20 of 31 passes for 275 yards and an interception.

Van Jefferson's first career reception was a handsome 31-yard grab in the second quarter, but it was the promising Rams rookie's only catch.

"I think one of the biggest correction components is I just think it's a product of not playing any games, a lot of football together", McCarthy said. "It was a loss and not a performance I'm proud of".
