Resurgent Los Angeles Chargers hammer Dallas Cowboys
A quick recap of the game between Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys.
Despite the Los Angeles Chargers only scoring three points in the first half against the Dallas Cowboys and racking up a lot of yardage, it was only a matter of time that the Chargers would start scoring touchdowns against a tired Dallas Cowboys defense. Los Angeles scored 25 points in the second half to beat Dallas by 28-6 margin.
Nick Novak made a 22-yard field goal for the Chargers in the second-quarter, but he was in pain and Novak had a back injury. Novak also missed a field goal and the Chargers had to go for it on fourth-and-13 deep in Dallas territory at one point in the first half.
In the third quarter, Philip Rivers threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Henry for Los Angeles. Henry finished with five receptions for 76 yards receiving and a touchdown. Dak Prescott would have scored on a 34-yard touchdown run on the next drive for the Cowboys, but it was called back because of a holding penalty by Tyron Smith.
Tyrell Williams caught a 27-yard touchdown pass later in the third from Rivers. Williams finished with two receptions for 58 yards receiving and a touchdown. In case any of you guys are interested, Drew Kaser, the punter, made the extra point for the Chargers.
The only Cowboys touchdown in the game was scored by Rod Smith from two yards out (missed two-point conversion). Smith finished with 41 yards rushing on nine carries and a score.
Keenan Allen caught a pass and ran past Dallas defenders for a 42-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. Allen finished with 11 receptions for 172 yards and a touchdown. Rivers completed 27-of-33 passes for 434 yards and three touchdowns.
The Chargers put the icing on the cake with a Desmond King 90-yard pick six. Dak Prescott had another rough game for the Dallas Cowboys. He completed 20-of-27 passes for 179 yards and two interceptions. Terrance Williams was the Cowboys leading receiver with four receptions for 54 yards receiving.
Tyron Smith returned from injury for the Cowboys. Sean Lee did not play and Ezekiel Elliott is still suspended. The Cowboys have not scored tor more points in three consecutive games. This is the first time in franchise history that has occurred for the Cowboys.
The Los Angeles Chargers will host the Cleveland Browns (0-10) next Sunday and the Dallas Cowboys will host the Washington Redskins (5-6) next Thursday Night.
