The Dallas Cowboys will head out on the road to face off against the Los Angeles Chargers at 8:15 p.m. ET on Monday at SoFi Stadium. The Chargers do have the home-field advantage, but the Cowboys are expected to win by two points.
After soaring to 38 points the game before, Dallas faltered in their matchup on Sunday. There’s no need to mince words: the Cowboys lost to the 49ers, and the Cowboys lost bad. The score wound up at 42-10. The loss unfortunately continues a disappointing trend for Dallas in their matchups with San Francisco: they’ve now lost three in a row.
Perhaps unsurprisingly given the score, the Cowboys couldn’t find the end zone and finished the game with only a touchdown. They were demolished by their opponents in that department as the 49ers scored six.
Meanwhile, the Chargers earned a 24-17 win over the Raiders two Sundays ago. Los Angeles’ offense checked out after the first half but had enough points banked to take the game anyway.
It was another big night for Justin Herbert, who threw for 167 yards and a touchdown, and also punched in two touchdowns on the ground.
The Chargers’ defense stepped up as well, laying out the QB seven times. Leading the way was Khalil Mack and his six sacks.
Los Angeles’ win bumped their season record to 2-2 while Dallas’ loss dropped theirs to 3-2.
Some high-performance offense is likely on the agenda as the pair are some of the highest scoring teams in the league. The Cowboys don’t have any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 26.8 points per game. However, it’s not like the Chargers struggle in that department as they’ve been even better at 27.5 per game. With both teams so easily able to put up points, the only question left is who can run up the score up higher.
