3 Stars: Some games stars are made with just one or two big plays

The Dallas Cowboys proved once more that they are nobody’s underdogs.

 They won another game in which they weren’t favored, and they did it beating the points spread by more than ten points yet again.

The Los Angeles Rams definitely had their stars show up. On offense Matt Stafford threw for over 300 yards,

 Cooper Kupp had seven receptions for 125 yards, and he scored on a 75-yard touchdown pass.

Defensively, Aaron Donald had two sacks and Jalen Ramsey was the top guy in a secondary that held the entire receiving

 core of Dallas to 10 receptions for 102 yards. The Rams three stars might have been easy to spot, but the Cowboys success was a little more spread out.

The passing game for Dallas might have been nonexistent, but this win was still because of all three phases.

The defense clearly dominated the game, holding the Rams without much success beyond two big pass plays.

The Cowboys caused three turnovers and even scored on a strip sack.

The special team unit set up three points as well with a blocked punt, and Brett Maher hit three field goals in the contest.

 On offense, Dallas was able to run the ball for almost five yards per carry, helping the defense stay fresh,

and also not giving away a single turnover to set the Rams up for easy points.

The three stars of the game came from the three biggest playmakers of the night for the Cowboys,

 as they were instrumental to knocking off the defending Super Bowl champs.
