Troy Aikman impressed with Dak Prescott's leadership in last week's win

NFL Week 4 power rankings Rams make big jump into top 12

The Rams and Chargers better hope they can piece together a couple winning seasons or one of them may be leaving LA sooner than expected.

If you like watching games that 69 minutes and 28 seconds without a touchdown, this one was for you. Romo completed 18 of 23 passes for 217 yards and one interception. But the Cardinals would answer.

DUAL-THREAT GURLEY: Gurley joined Hall of Famers Jim Brown (1958, 1963) and Emmitt Smith (1995) as the only National Football League players with at least 575 scrimmage yards and seven touchdowns in the first four games. They went on to lose four in a row and finished the season 4-12. The starting middle linebacker had a game-high 10 tackles and a quarterback hit.

A pounding running attack, an efficient passing game and a bend but don't break defense - this was the type of Cowboys football we've come to expect.

He Said It (Arizona): "It's Larry Time". Zuerlein added the extra point once again, and the Rams had their first lead of the game, 26-24 with 2:59 left in the third quarter. "I can easily say now, I can extend (the play) and get it done".

"There's a lot of good backs in the league right now and Todd Gurley's one of the best guys", Elliott said. If he can win the majority of his matchups with guard Chaz Green - perhaps the only weak spot on an otherwise stellar offensive line - LA can speed up Prescott's internal clock and get him off rhythm. Interestingly enough, the Colts will have played the entire NFC West by Week 5. His 53-yard receiving touchdown is the Rams longest scoring play of the season and is the third longest catch of his career and is the longest touchdown reception by a Rams running back since Steven Jackson had a 64-yard reception against Washington in 2006. His 53 yard touchdown catch and run was a ideal example of the Cowboys having no clue what hit them. Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein booted six field goals. Here are five of his most mind-blowing statistics through the first quarter of the regular season.

United Kingdom warns Boeing over Bombardier trade row
In a tweet , she said: " The Government will continue to work with the company to protect vital jobs for Northern Ireland ". Boeing's complaint against Bombardier drew a backlash even before Tuesday's decision.

He Said It: "It's only the beginning". McVay said the status of starting safety Lamarcus Joyner, who missed the game with a hamstring injury, remains "week to week", and said he didn't know whether Joyner would play against Seattle. "We've definitely got to keep moving forward and just get better every week and don't get complacent". Los Angeles has a young, high powered offense that can absolutely air the ball out. "We're sick that we lost the game".

Zuerlein finished one field goal short of tying the single-game record by going a ideal 7-of-7. The Cowboys had just scored a touchdown, and followed up by converting on their two-point attempt.

Cam Newton threw for three touchdowns and ran for another. Dallas' Dez Bryant also has two TDs, but just 114 yards on 11 catches.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff has benefited significantly from having Sean McVay take over as head coach. The Rams have allowed the fifth most rushing yards in the week as teams average 139 yards per game on them.

Dallas stormed out to a 17-6 lead, but things changed following a muff by return-man Ryan Switzer.

Through the first month of the 2017 season, perhaps no team has more thoroughly surpassed expectations than the Los Angeles Rams. Zuerlein is a flawless 14-for-14 on field goal attempts this season.
