The St. Louis offense went three-and-out to start the game. They punted the ball, Dallas fumbled on the return and St. Louis recovered with prime field position. Rather than capitalizing on the turnover and going into kill mode early, the Rams were forced to punt yet again.
It was all downhill from there. With 18 total yards and only one first down in the entire first half, the Rams fell well behind early on.
Dallas moved the ball with ease thanks to DeMarco Murray, who finished with 203 total yards, and entered halftime with a 17-0 lead.
Dallas scored 24 points before the Rams finally found the end zone with a third-quarter touchdown, but the game was already out of hand.
It was an embarrassing outing for the Rams and deflating loss for the fanbase.
