The third Rams quarterback to play Saturday, Dan Orlovsky, was 1 of 2 for 3 yards. After their abysmal 4-12 record a year ago, the team has re-vamped the fan experience at the Coliseum to entice the crowd into sticking around for the whole season.
Moore appeared in three regular season games (two starts) late in the 2015 season and completed 61 of 104 passes for 779 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.
Goff, who struggled past year as a rookie, looked good in his short stint that last just eight plays. Woods fumbled the ball into the endzone after getting hit by a Cowboys defender. While Witten still holds himself to a high standard when it comes to fighting domestic violence, he is hopeful the experience will help Elliott mature as a player and person.
It has been a tumultuous week in Dallas, and a preseason game is the least of the Cowboys worries. "I'd say this: there's no place for a man to put his hand on a woman".
Even so, McFadden also made a point to note that the entire Cowboys roster will remain behind the second-year rusher despite the fact that he has already received his six-game ban from the NFL.
"We talked to the team about the situation and the importance of focusing on what we can control", Dallas coach Jason Garrett said of Elliott's troubles. "We're excited for those guys to get some touches, and I think they'll be ready for the load". We suspected something like this might happen.
Elliott and Prescott worked out on the Coliseum field before the game and then watched from the sideline in uniform. But for now, it is assumed Darren McFadden will take over the starting duties until Elliott returns to the field. The former Oregon State Beaver finished the game with 18 completions on 25 passing attempts for 144 yards in the air, with no interceptions and no touchdowns.
In one of the cleaner moments of the evening, though, Cowboys quarterback Cooper Rush found Rico Gathers on a beatifully thrown pass over the top to level the score at 10-10 after three quarters. Gathers scored in his second straight game. The Philadelphia Eagles have fortified their offense around quarterback Carson Wentz as he, like Prescott, enters his second National Football League season.
