Rams 21, Cowboys 10: Second Half Thread

The Rams carry a two-possession lead into the second half. Time to protect the lead.

Well that was interesting.

A bit of the Austin Davis show. A 51-yard TD from Brian Quick. A Janoris Jenkins pick 6.

And Scott Wells snapped it to his own genitals.


In any case, we're up 11 with a half to play. This is a huge test for an offense that is seemingly better suited to protect a lead than to get this kind of scoreline. It's time to see what kind of scheme we come up with to protect a lead.

Do we continue to sprinkle in plenty of Austin Davis who has proven adept at spreading the ball around? Do we get Zac Stacy more work than the five carries he had in the first half? Will Stedman Bailey be a surprise feature in the way Trey Watts was in the first half?

And what of the defense? A masterful early contain job on DeMarco Murray withered a bit on the Cowboys' TD drive.

Time to figure out how this team responds to early success.
