Taco Charlton had another productive game as a pass-rusher against reserve offensive linemen. Linebacker Justin Phillips also made a highlight-reel interception in the third quarter on a post route from Brandon Allen intended for Kendall Blanton.
Swing tackle Cameron Fleming was fantastic in pass protection against Los Angeles' defensive front. While he didn't have a banner day in the run game, his efforts as a pass-blocker were far above average.
Darrell Henderson caught a wheel route against Jaylon Smith on third down for a 26-yard gain on the Rams' first drive. He showed great burst all throughout and made several strong plays in the passing game.
Rookie Texas Tech product Dakota Allen laid the boom on a big defensive stop in the backfield late in the contest. He also several other tackles in the contested, including multiple defensive stops in addition to his big hit in the backfield.
Cornerback CJ Goodwin, an undrafted free agent from the 2014 class, missed a tackle and allowed multiple receptions into his coverage on his way to an underwhelming performance Saturday night.
Edge defender John Franklin-Myers didn't have a great night against Dallas' offensive line. He failed to create pressure in the passing game and finished the contest with zero defensive stops.
Backup guard Jamil Demby, a 2016 sixth-rounder out of the University of Maine, was an absolute liability in this one. He turned in ugly performances in pass protection and in the run game.
