Such was not the case as the team only scored 17 points against the Rams, and only 3 in the entire second half. On top of that, his decision to go for it on 4th & 3 instead of going for a chip shot field goal ultimately would cost the team the game as they lost by 3.
After the loss, there was an alarming amount of Cowboys fans already calling for his firing after one game.

Taking three points earlier would have made it a different game at the end.
