Rams off to shaky return, Cowboys score on opening kickoff

89,140 fans packed into the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in the team's first home game of their new residency of L.A.

Bryant had two receptions for 28 yards, including a leaping catch on the sideline against cornerback Coty Sensabaugh for 18 yards.

"That was Bryant"™s last play of the game, but Prescott was far from done.

In addition to Romo, Dallas didn't use running back Ezekiel Elliott, tight end Jason Witten and tackle Tyron Smith.

At least until the opening kickoff.

Prescott fired back, connecting with Terrance Williams on a 32-yard touchdown 1:32 into the second quarter. The rookie quarterback's first pass was incomplete.

The Cowboys let the game slip away in the second half when Jameill Showers took over at quarterback.

"Duke came in, knew he had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity based on some of the things that happened in his history", Los Angeles coach Jeff Fisher said. Goff played for the bulk of the second quarter and finished 4/7 with 38 yards and one interception, meaning he improved and went 4/5 for 38 yards following that original shaky drive.

Rams starting quarterback Case Keenum played the first three series, guiding the team on a 75-yard, eight-play touchdown drive on their second possession, with Benny Cunningham running the final 14 yards for the score.

Mannion, a third-round pick a year ago, completed 18-of-25 passes for 147 yards and three touchdowns. Working his way back from a strained hamstring, Bryant was unable to face Rams defensive backs during last year's training camp practices.

Dak Prescott might not have answered all of the Dallas Cowboys' backup quarterback questions, but the rookie gave the team a few reasons to believe he's ahead of schedule in his development. Prescott, who is a rookie, targeted star wide receiver Dez Bryant, and the physical receiver caught a 10-yard touchdown pass to put the Cowboys up 14-0. After a decisive victory in Tennessee the week before, most Cowboys faithful expected to walk all over the Rams in this week 3 matchup.

The Rams played at the Coliseum - and won four National Football League championships there - from 1946 until 1980. However, Higbee showed that he can be a reliable option for whoever is the quarterback in the receiving game with his sure hands.

But besides that second drive, Prescott continued to impress, but more on that later. "I'm fine", Goff said. "It's like he's been here before". He's not playing like a rookie. After taking a hit Goff did injure his non-throwing shoulder, but he should be good to go when next week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs rolls around.

ESPN reports that Los Angeles pricing was in full effect for the game with "premium beer" selling for $16 and commemorative t-shirts going for $30.
