The Cowboys started their game against Los Angeles Rams as firm favorites to register a win. Head Coach Mike McCarthy was confident that his superstar offense will instill some fear into their opponents as they dove into the game.
However, the Los Angeles Rams had their minds set on causing an upset at their brand-new SoFi Stadium.
A brilliant defensive display led by the menacing Aaron Donald condemned the Cowboys to a narrow 20-17 loss in the opening game of the season. Here’s what highly rated NFL rookie, CeeDee Lamb, felt after making his league debut.
CeeDee Lamb made his much-anticipated NFL debut in the narrow loss to the Rams on Sunday. The rookie wideout had a quiet evening at the SoFi Stadium. He made five receptions and registered 59 passing yards in the loss.
Here’s what the former Oklahoma Sooners man said at the post-game presser on Sunday night.
“Honestly, I’m not really too pleased with myself nor my performance. I felt like there’s a lot more stuff that I left on the table and a lot of things that I could have made better, you know, decision making.
“I could have played a lot faster, I could have done a lot of things better, be a better option for Dak,” Lamb told the press.
Dallas Cowboys’ Dak Prescott endured a tough outing against the Rams yesterday. Much of that was down to the defensive dominance of their opponents led by the likes of Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey.
“I mean there was definitely good things out there. But when you don’t get a win and we know how talented we are on the offense, the expectations we put on ourselves.”
“We didn’t make plays….there was good out there, there was something that we can grow on. But it was not anything that we wanted to start with or a feeling that we’ll ever be okay with,” Prescott added.
The Cowboys are slated to go up against the Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks over the course of the next two weeks. Then Mike McCarthy’s boys will host Cleveland Browns at home in what will be a ‘star-studded’ affair.
Let’s hope they find the momentum they’re looking for over the next few days.
