(Nexstar) — The Dallas Cowboys lost their season opener to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night 20-17.
In the fourth quarter, the Cowboys had an opportunity to tie the game at 20 with a 32-yard field goal attempt. However, new head coach Mike McCarthy decided to go for the first down on fourth and three.
McCarthy’s gamble didn’t pay off and the Cowboys turned the ball over on downs and watched the rest of the game slip away.
Cowboys radio commentator and former quarterback Babe Laufenberg looks at that decision in our Tuesday Morning Quarterback segment for this week.
