Stefano Fusaro ESPN 

Cowboys get their first touchdown in 10 quarters, a Rod Smith run up the middle at the goal line. Dak overthrows Terrence Williams on the 2 point conversion. 16-6 Chargers.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys finally find the end zone. Their first since the first quarter against Atlanta and first in 27 possessions. Rod Smith burrows his way into the end zone for his first touchdown but Dak Prescott misses an open Terrance Williams on the 2-point play.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys enter the fourth quarter trailing, 16-0. They have scored just one touchdown in their last 28 possessions. Do you believe they can score twice and convert two 2-point conversions just to tie this up?

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Philip Rivers' 27-yard touchdown pass to Tyrell Williams was the seventh pass play the Cowboys have allowed today. The Cowboys have now been outscored 60-0 in the second half of their last three games.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys can't scheme a big play offensively for their life. Philip Rivers just hit Tyrell Williams for a 31-yard gain that was all about scheme for the Chargers.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys can't catch any kind of break with that Tyron Smith holding penalty. Just a reminder, an opposing offensive linemen has not been called for a holding penalty on the Cowboys since Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Stefano Fusaro ESPN 

Cowboys best play of the day, a 34 yard TD run from Prescott is wiped out due to a holding call on none other than Tyron Smith. Possession over, Dallas forced to punt.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Cowboys have a touchdown negated by a holding penalty by Tyron Smith. Not sure of the call, but Dak Prescott had a 34-yard touchdown run wiped out.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Cowboys doing whatever they can to get a rhythm on offense. Open the second half with no huddle.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys will be without right guard Zack Martin for the rest of the game. Joe Looney is at right guard.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

With Hunter Henry's touchdown catch the Cowboys have allowed a touchdown on the first drive of the third quarter in four straight games. Those drives have been 75, 75, 62 and 77 yards. Chargers lead 9-0. Seems almost insurmountable.

Martin concussed as Cowboys O-line takes hit

All-Pro RG Zack Martin was staggered on a run by Rod Smith but remained in Thursday's game for the next four plays. During the Los Angeles Chargers' next drive, he underwent cognitive tests and was replaced by Joe Looney.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys allowed 9 rushing yards in the first half. Melvin Gordon had 11 yards on his first carry of the second half. He added 7 yards on his second carry.

Stefano Fusaro ESPN 

Chargers punter Drew Kaser practicing field goals, with a halftime concert going on 20 yards away. Novak did come back in and kick the a field goal late in the 2nd, the games only points. But he could possibly be done as Kaser continues to warm up.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Just a reminder, the Cowboys have been outscored, 47-0, in the second half of their last two games against Atlanta and Philadelphia.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys are up to 27 possessions without Ezekiel Elliott with just one touchdown - and that drive was just 21 yards - as they trail the Chargers, 3-0, at halftime. The Cowboys have 84 yards offense in the first half, or 1 fewer than Elliott ran for in the fourth quarter against Green Bay on Oct. 8.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

I'm not one to complain about officiating but the crew missed a face mask on the kickoff return by Ryan Switzer and Desmond King flung Jason Witten to the ground well after the play was over. No calls.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

All-Pro right guard Zack Martin was getting looked at by the medical staff for a concussion. Joe Looney is in for Martin.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Jourdan Lewis had to have lost that in the sun, right? There can't be any other reason for the dropped pick. Of course, Jerry Jones will deny the sun played a part in the play.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

On the Cowboys' first three possessions, they have one first down by pass. Dak Prescott hit Terrance Williams for 2 yards on a second-and-1 play.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys have gone to an empty set on three occasions so far. Dak Prescott has completed one pass for 3 yards and been sacked twice.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

For the second straight game the Cowboys' opponent will be without its kicker after one drive. Nick Novak has a back injury, forcing the Chargers to go for it on fourth down from the Dallas 14. Cowboys defense get a stop on fourth and 13.

Stefano Fusaro ESPN 

For the second straight week, the visiting kicker at AT&T stadium suffers an injury. Chargers kicker Nick Novak is questionable to return. Emergency kicker is Punter Drew Kaser, who is warming up. The Eagles used a linebacker last week for kickoffs.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

After one quarter, Philip Rivers is on pace for 580 yards passing against the Cowboys defense. He has completions of 46, 32 and 27 yards. The Chargers will open the second quarter at the Dallas 12.
