FRISCO, Texas — An opportunity for the Dallas Cowboys to bounce back from a demoralizing loss to the San Francisco 49ers awaits back out in the state of California when they take on the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football at SoFi Stadium.
The matchup with the Chargers will give the defensive unit for the Cowboys specific issues in the passing game where Justin Herbert has been exceptional so far this season.
On the offensive side, the Chargers are giving up the most passing yards of any team in the NFL at 299.8 yards per game, which gives Dak Prescott and the offense an opportunity to finally break out of its early season slump.
Here are the three key matchups to watch on Monday night.
CeeDee Lamb vs. Asante Samuel Jr.
CeeDee Lamb was noticeably frustrated on the sideline during the loss to San Francisco as he was largely a non-factor as the game got away at Levi's Stadium. This week, there will be an expected increase in importance on getting him the ball against a Chargers defense that has largely struggled so far this season.
Matched up with him will be Asante Samuel Jr. for most of his routes, as the 2021 second-round pick continues to flourish despite his short time in the league. While the defensive options in the secondary behind Samuel are shaky, his opportunity to limit Lamb will be available.
Don't expect to see this matchup on every snap, but when lined up against each other, it'll be an opportunity for each to take advantage of a lack in production around their respective matchup's side of the ball. The question will be which one can hold court for most of the night.
Terence Steele vs. Joey Bosa/Khalil Mack
When Terence Steele was thrown into the fire as a rookie against the Chargers right back at SoFi Stadium, he came out on the other side unscathed after lining up against Joey Bosa and finding success.
This time around, it might be a little different with Bosa questionable to go as he deals with a foot injury. Whether he goes or not, Steele will still have a challenge to face in Khalil Mack who typically combines with various fellow pass rushers off each edge to throw stunts at opposing tackles.
Fresh off a six-sack effort a couple of weeks back, Steele will need to settle in to hold Mack in check. If Bosa is healthy, that challenge only doubles.
Keenan Allen vs. Jourdan Lewis
With Mike Williams out for the year due to injury, it's been the Keenan Allen show once again in Los Angeles as he enters Monday night as the Chargers' leading receiver.
Out of the slot, Allen is a physical weapon that won't blow you away with his speed, but will win an opposing matchup with death by a thousand cuts in being physical off the line in his release, fluid in route running, and a unique body control ability that gives him the advantage almost every time down the field in jump ball situations.
Jourdan Lewis will draw the task of trying to limit Allen, but it won't be easy with the disadvantage in strength. If Lewis can have his best game of the season defending Allen, the Cowboys defense will be put in a much better position to come out with the win.

The most frustrating task in the 2023 postseason has become getting through the D-backs' lineup.
The other teams remaining might have more star power -- the Rangers, the Astros, and Arizona's opponents in the National League Championship Series, the Phillies. But so did the Dodgers. And that didn't stop the D-backs from outbattling them.
That's what this D-backs team does. It battles. Arizona's hitters outwork opposing pitchers, at-bat after at-bat, and whether it's sooner or later, they eventually get to everyone.
"I think this team is capable of doing anything," manager Torey Lovullo said after the D-backs upset Los Angeles. "We're a very dynamic team. It's about having mature at-bats and handing it off to the next guy, not doing too much."
Here's how the D-backs' top-to-bottom approach is pushing them through the postseason.
The D-backs, first of all, are seeing the most pitches of any team in the playoffs. They're the only offense averaging over four pitches per plate appearance, with hitters like Alek Thomas (4.52 pitches/PA), Christian Walker (4.52) and Tommy Pham (4.48) leading the way.
Most pitches/PA by team offense, 2023 postseason
This is actually a pretty big difference from the regular season, when Arizona was a slightly below-average team when it came to seeing pitches. The D-backs ranked 18th among the 30 teams with 3.89 pitches seen per plate appearance; the MLB average for 2023 was 3.91. They've stepped up their game for the playoffs.
And that number is even stronger when the starting pitcher is still in the game. Arizona hitters are seeing 4.33 pitches per plate appearance against opposing starters this postseason, and that patient approach has let the D-backs outlast every single starting pitcher they've faced so far.
The D-backs have scored at least three runs against each starter (Corbin Burnes, Freddy Peralta, Clayton Kershaw, Bobby Miller and Lance Lynn), and homered against four of the five -- three times against Burnes, once against Peralta and Kershaw, four times against Lynn. No starter has lasted more than five innings against Arizona.
D-backs star Corbin Carroll explained the team's mentality after they knocked out Burnes in their first game of the playoffs: "We wanted to get him out of there. I thought we took really patient at-bats and got rewarded with that patience by getting some balls in the middle of the plate that we were able to put good swings on."
That was a sign of things to come.
Starting pitchers vs. the D-backs in the playoffs Corbin Burnes: 4+ IP, 4 R, 3 HR Freddy Peralta: 5+ IP, 4 R, 1 HR Clayton Kershaw: 1/3 IP, 6 R, 1 HR Bobby Miller: 1 2/3 IP, 3 R Lance Lynn: 2 2/3 IP, 4 R, 4 HR
That's 21 runs the D-backs have scored against opposing starters in just 13 2/3 innings across five games. If they don't get to the starter early, like they did to Kershaw and Miller, they'll get to him later on, like they did to Burnes, Peralta and Lynn.
The D-backs' hitters can do that because they grind out deep at-bats with the confidence that the pitcher won't be able to beat them. Arizona's offense leads all postseason teams with 20 two-strike hits, nine two-strike extra-base hits and six two-strike home runs.
Pham has six of those two-strike hits, tied with the Phillies' Trea Turner for the postseason lead. Gabriel Moreno has three two-strike home runs, more than anyone else in the playoffs (Austin Riley and Royce Lewis had two each for their now-eliminated teams).
"He doesn't give away at-bats," Lovullo said of Moreno. "He's engaged. He's not afraid to have two strikes. Every good Major Leaguer is not afraid to hit with two strikes on him."
So many of Arizona's key hits through their sweeps of the Brewers and Dodgers came with two strikes. They had 10 two-strike RBI hits between the two series:
The average pitch count for those hitters in those 10 at-bats was 6.3 pitches. These D-backs are working deep counts, and coming through at the end of those long at-bats with clutch hits.
They have been disciplined, as Arizona has only chased 23.3 percent of pitches out of the strike zone this postseason, lowest of any team. And they have been resilient -- the putaway rate against Arizona hitters (the percent of two-strike pitches that get a strikeout) is just 18 percent, second best for any team offense, after the Orioles. D-backs hitters have fouled off or put in play 77.8 percent of the pitches they've swung at with two strikes, also second best after Baltimore.
They were good at those things in the regular season -- the D-backs had the eighth-lowest chase rate of any team (26.6 percent), and the eighth-lowest putaway rate (18.3 percent) -- but they weren't this good.
Arizona has turned into the most patient, best-battling team in the playoffs. That's the underdogs' formula for their deep postseason run.

Hollywood star Luke Evans said he was "ecstatic" to win an award at the Bafta Cymru film and TV awards ceremony.
The Pontypool-born actor won an entertainment programme honour for Luke Evans: Showtime!, his BBC 2 musical special which aired last Christmas Day.
Taron Egerton, from Aberystwyth, won best actor and Rakie Ayola from Cardiff took the Siân Phillips Special Award.
The event at International Convention Centre Wales was hosted by BBC One Show presenter Alex Jones.
Evans, 44, said: "This is an award that goes to all of us.
"You don't just do this on your own, even though it was my name on that title.
"It took an army to put it on that stage and everybody invested so much time and energy and passion - we knew what we wanted to do and we knew that we could bring that together."
Taron Egerton's accolade was for the Apple TV+ true-crime drama Black Bird.
Y Sŵn, which was up for seven nominations, picked up the first prize of the night with best feature/television film.
Set in the 1980s, it tells the tale of the campaign for a Welsh language TV channel and Gwynfor Evans, whose threat to go on hunger strike ultimately led to the foundation of S4C.
The Siân Phillips Special Award, one of BAFTA Cymru's highest accolades, went to Rakie Ayola, who has been in shows like Black Mirror and Doctor Who.
She joins a list of recipients which includes Ruth Jones, Michael Sheen and Russell T Davies.
She is also the first person of colour to receive the award and described it as "a massive thing for me, it's wonderful.
"To have your work recognised is enormous and I know it shouldn't be important and you go on regardless - thousands of actors, producers do.
"But when someone says 'We've kind of liked what you've done', you sort of melt.
"Now I can relax a little bit - until next week at least."
Also picking up best actress for The Pact, she added that she felt "Wales has kind of wrapped its arms around me lately, and I'm loving it".
Dame Siân Phillips said she was delighted to be part of the evening.
Asked if she had any tips for aspiring actors, she laughed: "No, they could probably give me advice at this point - I think they are much more savvy than I was when I was young."
She described being Welsh as "indelible… the language and everything is a part of you".
Russell T Davies won in the best writer category for ITVX's Nolly - a mini-series about the life of Crossroads star Noele Gordon - but he wasn't present to pick up his award.
BBC Radio Cymru presenter Hywel Gwynfryn described receiving his outstanding contribution award as a "great honour".
He described the favourite moment of his career: "In 1966 I opened the door of a dressing room and sitting in the corner was Muhammad Ali.
"I spent about four to five minutes in his company and there are shots of me and him talking.
"I've got those at home now and I really cherish them."
Other BBC winners included Mared Jarman, How This Blind Girl... BBC 2 (breakthrough Cymru); Sam Jordan-Richardson, Our Lives - Born Deaf Raised Hearing, BBC 1 (photography factual); Heart Valley, BBC 2 Wales (short film); Brothers in Dance: Anthony and Kel Matsena, BBC 2 Wales (single documentary).

CORVALLIS, Ore. —
The education of Dante Moore has resembled a painful lesson written over and over on a blackboard.
It’s hard to win when you throw a pick-six.
It’s hard to win when you throw a pick-six.
It’s hard to win when you throw a pick-six.
For a third consecutive game, the UCLA freshman quarterback had an interception returned for a touchdown.
For the second time in those three games, his team was unable to overcome that critical blunder.
Oct. 14, 2023
This pick-six was one of three passes Moore had intercepted Saturday night at Reser Stadium during the No. 18 Bruins’ dreary 36-24 loss to No. 15 Oregon State that raised more questions about Moore’s decision-making.
In three Pac-12 games, Moore has tallied twice as many interceptions (six) as touchdown passes (three). Even with UCLA’s running game piling up 284 yards and backup quarterback Collin Schlee mixing in effectively as a change-of-pace option before leaving with an injury, the Bruins could not overcome those interceptions.
“They all hurt,” UCLA coach Chip Kelly said, “and we have to clean it up.”
In a fitting end to the Bruins’ comeback hopes, Moore limped off the field after a sequence in which he was sacked on back-to-back plays and his fourth-down pass to Logan Loya was well short of a first down with 15 seconds left.
A shaky showing in which Moore completed 15 of 34 passes for 168 yards with one touchdown to go with those interceptions likely eliminated the Bruins (4-2 overall, 1-2 Pac-12) from conference title contention before Halloween.
“A lot of mistakes on my side,” Moore said. “As a quarterback, can’t turn over the ball. I know just in football in general it happens, mistakes happen, but just gotta keep bettering myself every week.”
Some blame also belonged to UCLA’s defense and perhaps Kelly for his refusal to rely more heavily on his running game in the first half. Running back Carson Steele ran for 82 of his 110 yards after halftime, getting 16 of his 22 carries in the second half.
Kelly wasn’t fully pleased with a run game that averaged 5.7 yards even with Moore getting sacked five times.
“I don’t think it was consistent, that was my point,” Kelly said. “There were a lot of big runs in there but there were some runs where I think we left some meat on the bone.”
For the first time this season, the Bruins’ defense bent a bit, giving up multiple touchdowns to an opposing offense. Twice, UCLA blew coverages on Oregon State tight end Jack Velling that resulted in touchdowns, including a 32-yard score that gave the Beavers a 36-17 lead late in the third quarter.
“Busted coverage,” Bruins linebacker Oluwafemi Oladejo said.
Kelly’s weeklong warnings about play-action passes couldn’t prevent the Bruins from getting burned on a 43-yard connection from D.J. Uiagalelei to Silas Bolden that gave Oregon State a 29-10 lead early in the third quarter.
But Moore’s mistakes were the primary culprit in UCLA’s second loss in its last three games.
The backbreaker came in the final minute before halftime, after Moore had run 16 yards to move UCLA into Oregon State territory. The Bruins were down by only six points. A touchdown could have given them the lead even after Moore had ended two previous drives with interceptions.
Moore took the snap and immediately locked on to his favorite receiver, J.Michael Sturdivant, near the sideline. Beavers defensive back Ryan Cooper Jr. read the play and got a jump on the pass, snagging it on his way to a 67-yard interception return for a touchdown.
Oregon State’s lead was 23-10 and the pats on Moore’s helmet as he walked back to the sideline could not console him.
Moore continued another bad habit of throwing the ball up for grabs while being hit, leading to an interception late in the first quarter.
There were moments of promise as well. Moore converted several fourth-down plays and fired a nifty 10-yard touchdown pass to Loya while under heavy pressure in the second quarter.
Schlee was an effective alternative, especially on a five-play, 69-yard drive in the third quarter that exclusively featured runs. Schlee contributed a 28-yard carry to the Beavers’ nine-yard line. Running back T.J. Harden ran into the end zone on the next play, pulling UCLA within 29-17.
But Schlee sustained an unspecified injury and did not play in the fourth quarter, leaving his status uncertain for next weekend at Stanford.
“The way Collin is, he’s a playmaker, he does a wonderful job with the football in his hand, he makes a lot of people miss, he can throw the ball,” Moore said, “and really just having him run the ball and having me throw the ball, I feel like that’s a great duo to have.”
Moore’s growing pains continued practically from the opening kickoff. For the third consecutive game, he had a pass intercepted on the first drive. This time Moore made the mistake of throwing across his body while rolling out on consecutive plays.
On the first play, Moore’s pass nearly was intercepted by Oregon State safety Akili Arnold. On the next play, Arnold made the interception and returned it 13 yards to UCLA’s 33-yard line.
It was the start of a dreadful evening that didn’t get much better for the Bruins. The pain will follow them into the film room for repeated viewings in which Kelly will seek ways to coax more consistency from his quarterback.
“He’s a resilient kid and that’s one thing that’s a great quality of his,” Kelly said. “We’re going to sit down and watch the film with him and go over what his decisions were when he had the ball and how those things happened and we’ll continue to grow as a football team.”

As the Dodgers’ front office quickly swivels to offseason planning, it has one obvious problem: a dozen more 40-man roster players than a 40-man roster can hold.
Not only will the Dodgers need to make fast decisions about their surplus parts, they will need to make room for any additional 40-man roster promotions, and players they intend to acquire this offseason.
Here’s a closer look at the decisions the Dodgers must (and must not) make about each player in the days and weeks to come:
Mookie Betts: Signed through 2032. Nothing to see here, other than how high he finishes in the National League MVP voting.
Freddie Freeman: Signed through 2027. See above.
Chris Taylor: The only other Dodger with a guaranteed contract beyond 2024, Taylor’s utility job is safe.
Miguel Rojas: After the Dodgers extended his contract through 2024 upon acquiring him from the Marlins, Rojas will get another chance to fill the backup infielder job projected for him before Gavin Lux tore two knee ligaments in February.
Austin Barnes: Poised to back up Will Smith in 2024 after a subpar season at the plate in 2023.
Tony Gonsolin: Will make $3.4 million next season while he rehabs from Tommy John surgery.
Max Muncy: His 175 home runs since 2017 rank 21st among active players. Throw in his plate discipline, credible baserunning and defensive versatility, and Muncy’s $10 million option is a bargain.
Lance Lynn: The Dodgers’ greatest offseason need is starting pitching. Few healthy and reliable options exist in free agency beyond a handful of established names (Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Aaron Nola, Blake Snell, Eduardo Rodriguez, Sonny Gray, Jordan Montgomery). Lynn, who turns 37 next year, would slot into the second tier if his $18 million option is declined. The right-hander went 7-2 with a 4.36 ERA in 11 regular-season starts as a Dodger. His home-run rate – especially in Game 3 of the NLDS – left much to be desired. The choice between exercising Lynn’s option or his $1 million buyout could depend on the status of Clayton Kershaw, the front office’s desire for a top-tier starter, and how they price the market for a steady-if-unspectacular veteran.
Joe Kelly: As they did with Lynn, the White Sox threw in a 2024 club option on Kelly ($9.5 million) that the Dodgers must now reckon with. Kelly’s stuff is still electric, but he’s made fewer appearances in every non-pandemic year since 2018 because of injuries. If the Dodgers’ offseason game plan does not include stockpiling rubber-armed starters, Kelly remains a good fit.
Daniel Hudson: A pitcher who’s made only 28 appearances the past two years, and ended each season grappling with a knee injury, rarely gets a $6.5 million guaranteed contract (the value of Hudson’s option). If Hudson wants to keep pitching at age 36, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Dodgers try to bring back the right-hander for less money.
Alex Reyes: Did not pitch in 2023 because of injuries. His option will be bought out.
Blake Treinen: Is unlikely to have his option exercised after missing most of the year recovering from a shoulder injury, then struggling to re-establish himself in the minors.
Walker Buehler: 2024 will be a pivotal year for Buehler, who is eligible for free agency after the season. He figures to be healthy, motivated, and paid about $8 million, according to MLB Trade Rumors’ estimate.
Will Smith: His bat faded down the stretch before reappearing in the NLDS, but his steady work behind the plate was a frequent reminder of Smith’s status as one of the best catchers in MLB.
Dustin May: After re-injuring his elbow, May won’t pitch much in 2024, but he’ll get a slight raise from his first-year arbitration salary.
Evan Phillips: Established himself as one of the game’s top closers (24 saves), a role he’s likely to reprise in 2024.
Brusdar Graterol: Ended the regular season with 25 consecutive scoreless innings, then took a “hidden perfect game” into the postseason. Will enter next season as the Dodgers’ top set-up man.
Caleb Ferguson: A 3.43 ERA across 68 appearances established Ferguson as one of the most durable relievers in the bullpen.
Alex Vesia: Struggled to adapt to the pitch clock early in the season, finishing with a 4.35 ERA in 56 appearances.
Yency Almonte: A down year (5.06 ERA) ended early because of a knee injury. That raises the possibility that Almonte will be non-tendered, but the prediction here is he gets another chance.
Gavin Lux: It will be interesting to see how Lux’s first-year arbitration salary is affected by the major knee injury that wiped out his entire 2023 season.
Victor Gonzalez: Two lefties (Ferguson and Vesia) were usually enough for Dave Roberts in 2023, and Gonzalez didn’t have the punchout stuff to force his way into more than 34 games. In his first year of arbitration eligibility, a non-tender would be a surprise.
Ryan Yarbrough: Went 4-2 with a 4.89 ERA after the Dodgers acquired him from Kansas City, then was left off their NLDS roster. Next season, Yarbrough could be a valuable piece in a rotation that figures to be short on left-handers or a bullpen lacking multi-inning relievers.
Wander Suero: Had his contract selected from Triple-A in September and got into five games, posting a 7.88 ERA. Likely to be non-tendered.
James Outman: Will collect Rookie of the Year votes after establishing himself as the team’s everyday center fielder.
Michael Grove: Fared better in six games as a reliever (4.24 ERA, .219 opponents’ batting average) than 12 games as a starter (6.75 ERA, .319 batting average).
Bobby Miller: His start in Game 2 of the NLDS notwithstanding, Miller was the most dependable rookie starting pitcher (11-4, 3.76 ERA) of the five the Dodgers relied on in 2023.
Ryan Pepiot: Only five pitchers in either league had a lower ERA (min. 40 IP) from the day Pepiot debuted (Aug. 19) until the end of the regular season.
Emmet Sheehan: The 23-year-old was inconsistent after making the leap from Double-A, but held opponents to a .210 average while striking out more than a batter per inning.
Miguel Vargas: Never hit enough (.195/.305/.367) to justify his playing time, earning a ticket to Triple-A at midseason, then was outplayed by Michael Busch with a promotion at stake.
Gavin Stone: Although he showed flashes of potential, inconsistency and ineffectiveness limited Stone to 31 innings at the major-league level.
Michael Busch: The Pacific Coast League MVP did little (.167/.247/.292) in 27 major-league games. If the Dodgers opt to sign (or re-sign) a veteran DH, Busch is an ideal trade candidate. If they don’t, he’s an adequate fall-back option.
Kyle Hurt: The 25-year-old right-hander appeared in only one game out of the bullpen late in the season, but could be competing for a big-league rotation spot in spring training next season.
Jonny DeLuca: A 24-game cameo showcased DeLuca’s ability to hit, run and field, establishing him as a depth outfielder for 2024.
Bryan Hudson: The 6-foot-8 lefty made six appearances and logged a 7.27 ERA.
Clayton Kershaw: His offseason is effectively an exploration of a two-part question: Will his balky left shoulder allow him to pitch to the level he desires in 2024 and, if so, where does he want to pitch? The Dodgers and Texas Rangers were Kershaw’s only considerations last winter. Before anyone can debate whether that’s the case again, Kershaw must resolve the question about his health.
Julio Urías: Will not be re-signed after ending the season on administrative leave while MLB investigates a domestic violence incident.
Jason Heyward: Considering how his season ended (.813 OPS in 124 games), it’s hard to believe it began with a minor-league contract. Heyward will command a major-league contract somewhere this offseason. Considering how the Dodgers successfully rebuilt his swing and maximized his talent in a platoon arrangement, they can’t be ruled out.
J.D. Martinez: His one-year, $10 million contract looks like a bargain in hindsight. His 33-homer, 103-RBI season was a key ingredient of the Dodgers’ 100-win campaign. Shohei Ohtani represents the only way the Dodgers upgrade their DH position via free agency. Busch offers an intriguing in-house alternative. There’s a chance the Dodgers prefer re-signing Martinez to either of those alternatives, but it seems relatively small.
David Peralta: The veteran left fielder gave the Dodgers perhaps all they could ask from him (.259, seven homers, 55 RBIs) on a one-year, $6.5 million contract. Peralta turns 37 next season, a tough age to be a part-time corner outfielder in free agency. The Dodgers might consider him redundant if they re-sign Heyward. The emergence of DeLuca, and possibly corner outfield prospect Andy Pages, could have the same effect. In any case, Peralta seems unlikely to be back.
Shelby Miller: Was quietly excellent (36 games, 1.71 ERA, .905 WHIP) in a season interrupted by injury. The Dodgers would love him to repeat that effort in 2024, but he’ll have plenty of suitors eager to give him a raise on his $1.5 million base salary.
Kiké Hernandez: Gave the Dodgers an average bat and versatile defense – exactly what was expected – after arriving in a midseason trade with Boston. He fits on any roster, even more on a team locked into one DH who doesn’t play the field. Bringing back Martinez, or signing Shohei Ohtani, only makes a reunion with Hernandez more possible.
Ryan Brasier: Revived his career and stabilized the bullpen with a 0.70 ERA and sub-1 WHIP after joining the Dodgers in June. Will get a hefty raise above the major-league minimum wherever he signs.
Amed Rosario: Did well to learn second base on the fly and provide a right-handed bat off the bench after being acquired from Cleveland for Noah Syndergaard in July. It wouldn’t take much to make his roster spot redundant – a bounceback season by Miguel Vargas, a return to health by Gavin Lux, re-signing Hernandez – making it unlikely Rosario returns to the Dodgers.
Jimmy Nelson: After finally returning to health, Nelson did not pitch well enough in the minor leagues to earn a big-league roster spot – an anticlimactic ending to a Dodger career marred by injuries.

The Rams struggled offensively for much of the first half, scoring only six points.
But Los Angeles was dominant in the last 30 minutes on Sunday, coming away with a 26-9 victory over division-rival Arizona.
The Cardinals held the ball for 20:58 in the first half, running 42 plays to the Rams’ 20. Los Angeles was also 0-5 on third down in the first 30 minutes.
But L.A. started to get a little rhythm offensively just before the break. Quarterback Matthew Stafford hit receiver Cooper Kupp with a 49-yard deep pass down the right side to get the Rams into scoring position. Brett Maher connected on a 35-yard field goal, making the score 9-6, Cardinals, at halftime.
But then it was all Rams in the second half, with the club scoring 20 unanswered points in the third and fourth quarters.
After running it just three times in the first half, Los Angeles started the third period with nine straight run plays before Stafford hit Kupp with a 13-yard touchdown on the right side.
Then Maher’s 25-yard field goal made it 16-9 with 2:44 left in the third quarter.
The Cardinals had a chance to score at the beginning of the fourth quarter, with the ball on the L.A. 12. But quarterback Joshua Dobbs threw a pass behind Zach Ertz over the middle that was tipped and intercepted by linebacker Christian Rozeboom.
The Rams went down the field and scored with Kyren Williams’ 5-yard touchdown, making it 23-9 and largely putting the game out of reach.
Maher connected on a 43-yard field goal with 4:37 left to cap the scoring.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford finished 15-of-24 passing for 226 yards with a touchdown and no picks.
Williams enjoyed the best day of his young career, taking 20 carries for 158 yards with a touchdown. His longest run of the day was 31 yards. But he was dealing with an ankle issue late in the game that may affect his availability going forward.
In his second game back from a hamstring injury, Kupp caught seven passes for 148 yards. Puka Nacua caught four passes for 26 yards.
Dobbs was 21-of-41 for 235 yards with an interception and a lost fumble. He also led the team with 47 yards rushing.
Now at 3-3, the Rams will stay at home next week to play the Steelers.
The 1-5 Cardinals will be on the road to face the Seahawks.

NFL Week 6 is upon us, and we're diving into Colin Cowherd's favorite picks from this week's slate of games.
Let's get to it.
Colin's pick, score prediction: Ravens -4 (Ravens win 27-21)
Colin's thoughts: "I love the Ravens -4. You know I love favorites when the number is 4. They're 3-2 this season, both losses were by one possession, and is anybody watching Lamar Jackson? He was the highest-graded quarterback last week against the Steelers this season, according to PFF. By the way, their offense ranks third in big plays. Lamar Jackson is having a hell of a season."
Colin's pick, score prediction: Bengals -2.5 (Bengals win 26-20)
Colin's thoughts: "I love this one. I'm taking the Bengals -2.5. Joe Burrow is finally healthy — season-high completion percentage last week. Burrow, in the last two seasons, has been awful in September. If you look at the rest of the season's numbers, he's the second-best quarterback in the league to Patrick Mahomes."
Colin's pick, score prediction: Bears +3 (Bears win 24-21)
Colin's thoughts: "Bears +3 — lousy, rainy, windy weather favors the run team and no NFL team is more pass-dependent than Minnesota, and Justin Jefferson is out. Justin Fields' last two games looked pretty spicy, with a 67% completion percentage, connecting with DJ Moore. In the last two weeks, Justin Fields — passing yards a game, passer rating, and big plays. He's been truly terrific."
Colin's pick, score prediction: Saints -1.5 (Saints win 24-20)
Colin's thoughts: "I don't get this line. I'm taking the Saints -1.5. In his last three games, Derek Carr has a 100 passer rating and no picks. But the defense is the story here. Dennis Allen is an excellent defensive coach — top five in scoring defense, total defense and pass defense. By the way, the passer rating allowed by the Saints this year is 66, which is the best in the NFL."
Colin's pick, score prediction: Chargers +2.5 (Chargers win 28-24)
Colin's thoughts: "I'll take the Chargers +2.5. They're getting healthy. Here comes Austin Ekeler — he's back. Where the Chargers have struggled is on fourth-and-1, third-and 3; that's Austin Ekeler. The offensive line is fine, Herbert is great, and Keenan Allen is going to be a Hall of Famer potentially. They're not good at short yardage, and now they will be. By the way, the Cowboys' three wins are against the Giants, Jets, and Patriots."
