3. Backups struggle to stop Prescott
While the Rams decided to rest their starters, the Cowboys allowed their first stringers on offense to play one drive, just to avoid any potential rust for a few weeks from now.

In other words, with Dak Prescott and the rest of the Dallas offense facing the second stringers of Los Angeles, no one should have been surprised to see the Cowboys shred the Rams’ defense the way they did on their first drive.
Not only did Prescott’s drive cover 97 yards, but the Cowboys star quarterback completed all five of his pass attempts for 64 yards before Tony Pollard found the end zone on a 14-yard run.
As frustrating as this was to watch, at least this drive in particular allowed the second stringers on Los Angeles a chance to see some real action against the Dallas starters.
It would be one thing if the starters didn’t perform so well, but since this drive consisted of backups, it’s tough to be too upset over the outcome.
If anything, this could be used as a learning experience for these players on the Rams that will hopefully benefit them in the long run since some of them can use all of the extra help possible.
