Week 8 ended up being a very good one for the Dallas Cowboys.
Dallas scored 17 points in the first quarter and went into the half with a 33-9 lead. Matthew Stafford and the Rams scored to kick off the third quarter but Dallas just kept pouring it on and Stafford even had to leave with a thumb injury.
The end result was a 43-20 win for Dallas. Now at 5-2 on the year, let's see who stood out as both studs and duds in this win.
Cowboys Stud: Jake Ferguson, Tight End
Earlier this season, Dak Prescott was telling everyone just how good Jake Ferguson could be. Replacing Dalton Schultz as the starter, the second-year player has put together several good games but has yet to truly break out.
On Sunday, he again showed off why the Cowboys were willing to make him the starter and why Prescott was such a believer in him.
Ferguson capped off the opening drive with a finger-tip grab for an 18-yard touchdown to put his team up 7-0.
He followed that up with two 12-yard receptions in the second quarter, the second of which set Dallas up at the L.A. nine-yard line. They were unable to score with Jordan Fuller picking off a tipped pass but Ferguson still set his team up nicely on that drive.
Ferguson ended up with 47 yards on four receptions which is the kind of stat line this offense would love to see from him every week.
