The Cowboys vs Chargers live stream technically has one team coming off their bye week. That would be Los Angeles. However, if you asked Dallas fans they may say the Cowboys also took last week off. At least that’s what it looked like when Dak Prescott and “Dem Boys” were blown out, 42-10 against the 49ers on Sunday Night Football. Now, the Cowboys are hoping to have a much better showing for the nation in this primetime NFL live stream.
The Monday night kickoff means Dallas (3-2) had to wait an extra day to play their Week 6 game. That extra day must feel like an eternity with the bitter taste of last week’s loss in their mouth.

Prescott in particular played one of the worst games of his career, throwing for just 153 yards on 14-of-24 passing with three interceptions. It marked just the third time in his career he threw three picks and took three sacks in the same game.
Aside from Dak, Dallas’ defense would also like a redemption game. They were one of the most revered units in the NFL going into that Niners game but they were brought back down to earth, allowing 421 yards of total offense. For comparison, the Cowboys had allowed just under 260 yards of total offense on average through the first four games of the season.
While the Cowboys probably want to get back to play as quickly as possible, the Chargers (2-2) welcomed their bye week last week and the extra day this week as they have a few players on the mend. Quarterback Justin Herbert broke his middle finger in Week 4’s game against the Raiders, but said after the game, “Tis but a scratch, merely a flesh wound.” A line that made Chargers and Monty Python fans alike smile. Herbert will play in this game.
The bye week not only did Herbert well but also running back Austin Ekeler and safety Derwin James. Both are expected to return to action against Dallas. Ekeler missed three games with an ankle injury while James missed the Chargers’ 24-17 win over the Raiders in Week 4 due to a hamstring injury.
Currently, DraftKings has the Cowboys as 2.5-point road favorites against the Chargers. The over/under is 51.
