The Dallas Cowboys headed West to Los Angeles to face the Chargers after Dak Prescott and company got edged out on opening night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This game has been much different so far, as both offenses have hit a wall and been the culprit of turnovers.
With the Cowboys up 14-11 right before halftime, they had one last shot to score before going into the locker room. And boy, were they close. Watch this unreal play that left them just a couple of yards short of a marvelous touchdown.
Wow, #Cowboys, so close… lots of free yards for Dak at leastpic.twitter.com/ezE7gk3hdT

The Cowboys needed 51 yards to score a last-second touchdown and increase their lead, and it almost happened after CeeDee Lamb lateraled it to Ezekiel Elliott and he was brought down right before the goal line.
What a play it was, and how unreal it would’ve been if the Cowboys did score at the end of the half to increase their lead
Dak Prescott and Justin Herbert have each tossed a turnover in the game, and SoFi Stadium is buzzing full of fans–from both teams– as this game has a ton of talent on both sides of the ball.
The Cowboys came up just short, but still lots of football to play.
