INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) – Greg Zuerlein connected on a 56-yard field goal as time expired to give the Dallas Cowboys a 20-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.
After Tristan Vizcaino tied the game with a 29-yard field goal, Dallas went 49 yards in 11 plays to get just barely into Zuerlein’s range.
Tony Pollard ran for 109 yards on 13 carries for the third 100-yard game of his career.
Dak Prescott completed 23 of 27 passes for 237 yards as the Cowboys evened their record at 1-1 despite being without five players who started the opener.
Justin Herbert had the 10th 300-yard game of his young career but threw two interceptions.
