It was the first game of the post-Todd Gurley era for the Rams.

So this isn't the Hollywood ending that anybody pictured on a landmark night for professional football's return to Los Angeles.

The Rams will still take plenty of sweet memories from this inaugural game.

Jones also said tight end Blake Jarwin suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in Sunday night's season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams. "I thought Michael ran an excellent route". Rams quarterback Jared Goff completed 20 of 31 passes for 275 yards and an interception.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott wants to be fed.

Said McCarthy: "Yeah, I'm comfortable with the decision".

"Just kind of kept my head down and worked - and I knew eventually I may get a shot, I may not", he said. "Our defense played a lot of snaps". Henderson, who has been nursing a hamstring injury, carried the ball three times for six yards.

The Cowboys lost 20-17 and were particularly hurt by a penalty call on Michael Gallup in the final minute.

"It was a huge chance", Prescott said. "We had a big two-minute drive at the end of the half. But it is Game 1". "It was a lot of little things that we have to improve on". Definitely excited that Cam got out there and did his thing. I feel like we did that for the most part.

Mike McCarthy, making his debut as Cowboys coach, said he was surprised at the timing of the call and that Gallup and Ramsey were both hand fighting up the left sideline. We don't talk about players that aren't on our team specifically, but I can assure you that with the injuries that we have - certainly looking at the game tape and where we are. Rams rookie safety Jordan Fuller made a superb tackle on fellow rookie CeeDee Lamb before the marker. "There is ups and downs, ebbs and flows of the game that we had to overcome and I feel like we did a good job". It was a momentum opportunity to create a position for the offense to score.

Lamb had five catches for 59 yards in the first-round pick's first National Football League appearance. He also caught three passes for 31 yards, one that covered 18 yards.

Los Angeles got off to a great start when running back Malcolm Brown scored a one-yard rushing touchdown on the game's opening drive.
