NFL Preseason: San Diego Chargers Vs. Dallas Cowboys Recap
August 13, 2015
In a game that was heavy on defense, the Chargers came away with a win over Dallas Thursday night despite gaining just 199 yards on the ground. The Chargers have earned many more headlines for exploring a move to Los Angeles than for anything on the field, but Danny Woodhead's return from injury distracted fans from the relocation story for a moment. Woodhead, playing for the first time in nearly a year, found the end zone on his only touch of the game, an eight-yard run in the first quarter. Gus Johnson's five-yard run for Dallas tied the score before Brandon Oliver's ten-yard touchdown run earned the Chargers a 14-7 halftime lead. Nick Novak added a 52-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to clinch the game for San Diego.
