Mike McCarthy: Controversial pass interference ‘made me sick’

A season-opening loss wasn't the only setback the Dallas Cowboys suffered on Sunday Night Football.

"It was a huge chance", Prescott said. "It's not the way you'd imagine it, but I think we'll look back on this a long time from now and realize the importance of it, but it was really cool to go out there and get a win and play really well". "I think he has his arm out there, but I don't see him forcibly push him off". We were still able to move and get some progress, but we didn't get it done. "It was a lot of little things that we have to improve on".

The Cowboys lost 20-17 and were particularly hurt by a penalty call on Michael Gallup in the final minute.

Gallup had made illegal contact with Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey, according to the official, and offensive pass interference voided the 47-yard reception. They visit Buffalo the following week, but they'll fly home between games because McVay says the hotel quarantine restrictions necessary to stay out East probably aren't worth the reduction in travel.

Running backs Malcolm Brown, Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson combined for 124 yards rushing, and Brown scored two touchdowns in the Rams' 20-17 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys played from behind nearly all of the first half because they couldn't defend the screen pass. If Smith keeps it up, Everson Griffen and DeMarcus Lawrence should have more room to affect the quarterback.

Most encouragingly, the Rams stopped Dallas on nine of its 12 third downs and twice on fourth down, improving in an area that caused ample concern previous year. Against the Rams, Dallas converted just three of 12 third downs while LA was 9 of 15. Erving and Jarwin received knee injuries. Fellow defensive linemen Aldon Smith and Antwaun Woods stood next to him with hands on his shoulders, as did a staff member.

"My teammates were telling me that they didn't want me to do it by myself, alone, because we're a team", Poe said.

"It made me sick when I watched the TV copy. Don't do it unless your heart is there like mine was".

National Football League official Tony Corrente defended the offensive pass interference penalty called on Gallup in the closing stages of Sunday night's Cowboys-Rams game, leaving no gray area in Gallup's offense.
