The Dallas Cowboys are halfway through with the preseason after playing the Los Angeles Rams in Hawaii on Saturday. Here were three standouts from that game.
It was an unusually late night game as the Dallas Cowboys kicked off their Preseason Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Rams at 10:00 p.m. EST. The late start was due to the game being played in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Just as they did in the first preseason game, the Dallas starters came out and moved the ball down the field quickly before calling it a night. Unlike their first game against San Francisco which saw them settle for a field goal, the Boys ended up in the end zone on the opening drive.
From there, the starters went to the bench and the reserves got to work as they all fought to fight for their position on the team. There were plenty of impressive plays throughout the game and here, we look at three standouts who made their presence felt in Preseason Week 2.
Honorable Mention: Michael Gallup
With Amari Cooper yet to make his debut in 2019, second-year receiver Michael Gallup has been filling the role of the Cowboys No. 1 receiver in the first two weeks of the preseason. With the starters only playing one series in each game, we haven’t seen a lot of Gallup, but what he has shown has been impressive.
A third-round pick out of Colorado State, Gallup has pulled in all three of his targets so far but the one he had against L.A. was easily the most impressive. Facing their first third-down of the night, Dak Prescott went deep and Gallup was who he was looking for.
The pass was a little underthrown but Gallup made quite the adjustment and pulled ina leaping catch for the first down. It was the only play he made on the night, but it was enough to get him mentioned here.
