Dak Prescott’s money making season begins in primetime Sunday night against the Rams.
Still without a long-term contract, the Cowboys’ quarterback can ensure he’s one of the best paid passers in the NFL with a strong 2020 campaign. He has all of the weapons he could want, from the receiving trio of Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Ceedee Lamb to the ever-reliable Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield.
Los Angeles, which debuts its $5 billion SoFi Stadium on Sunday night, has already given its own signal-caller a mega contract. While Jared Goff hasn’t been a dud, the team still would like better production than the 22 touchdowns to 16 interceptions he delivered in 2019. After all, Goff is making $25.5 million this year.
The Cowboys and Rams are expected to be NFC playoff contenders this year after missing the postseason last season.

Cowboys vs. Rams score
Cowboys vs. Rams live updates, highlights from Sunday Night Football
9:12 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, Rams. Man, the Rams are wasting their scoring opportunities. They settle for three points after easily driving into the red zone. They should have far more points considering they’re already over 200 yards. 10-7, Rams.
9:11 p.m.: Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch has been ruled out with a collarbone injury.
9:08 p.m.: The Cowboys are completely lost on defense right now. They aren’t stopping the run or pass. Los Angeles is inside the Dallas 25.
9:01 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, Cowboys (confirmed by review). Elliott catches a screen pass and pushes his way into the end zone. This game seems like it might become high-scoring in a hurry. 7-7.
8:59 p.m.: CeeDee Lamb reels in his first career reception, and it’s for a big gain. Dallas is now in the red zone.
End of first quarter: Rams 7, Cowboys 0
8:50 p.m.: No good. Rams kicker Samuel Sloman misses a 29-yard chip shot after another long Los Angeles drive. Cowboys should feel fortunate to only be down one score right now.
8:44 p.m.: Brown converts a fourth-and-1 run up the gut.
8:43 p.m.: Malcolm Brown takes the ball past midfield. He’s been a more effective running back than Cam Akers in the first quarter.
