Rams vs Cowboys: Game Pick - Can Boys' rein in Rams?

CB Jourdan Lewis

After this week, the Cowboys aren't scheduled to play another game in the early time slot until their Week 17 finale at Philadelphia, which could get end up getting flexed to primetime. They also stand 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings with the Cowboys.

What the Cowboys did once the game against Arizona started could reverberate for them on and off the field. He will face a stiff test this week, going up against the unheralded leader of the Dallas defense, LB Sean Lee. Their starting linebacker, who injured his hamstring against Arizona, didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday. He's had issues with fumbling on punt returns and has seen limited offensive snaps.

As has been discussed ad nauseam, the Rams' offensive line struggled all season to provide protection for then rookie quarterback Jared Goff, and the second year stud running back Todd Gurley.

Even some of the best teams in the league have a terrible offensive line. I think this L.A. defense is aggressive, and Ezekiel Elliott should be able to use that against them, working his way into open space. "Just being in that division the last couple of years, a lot of respect for them". This is a major contributing factor in the 25 points-per-game Los Angeles allows.

The Los Angeles Rams' All-Pro running back hasn't looked this good running the football since 2015, when he put up 1,106 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.

STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Rams 13-12 in series against Cowboys while previously in LA (1960-92). In just three games, the Rams have crossed the 40-point threshold as many times as they did during the entirety of the Jeff Fisher era. It's not realistic to expect Goff to outplay Tom Brady for the rest of the season. With better competition on the horizon, DC Wade Phillips must find a way to improve the performance this talent-laced unit. Goff's prolific start may regress somewhat over the coming months, but he finally looks like a player worthy of his lofty draft status.

But the Rams should already be pleased at their progress. "The Cowboys have the personnel to make them pay if they continue this trend".

Last season he started seven games, lost all seven and threw five interceptions under former head coach Jeff Fisher. Now, those two look like potential building blocks. The Rams, shockingly, are the NFL's highest-scoring team entering the fourth week. Sean McVay, who addressed the situation with his team Monday, said the Rams would have "standard operating procedures with the way that we'll handle the anthem".

Rams RB Todd Gurley has quickly made everyone forget about his woeful sophomore season.

One of the wrinkles the Rams like to use is the jet sweep motion. This ranked 3rd overall, and more importantly allowed their offense to cover up for many of their defense's flaws.

The Cowboys offense will physically wear down the Rams defense throughout the game, controlling the clock and keeping the Dallas defense fresh.

A very impressive team early in the season, but every year there are several teams you point to in the first 3 to 4 weeks and say "Wow, that team's really surprising". "If I had a vendetta against ... any team that fired me, I'd have a quarter of the league".

Don't worry Cowboys fans, that "sign" Witten's talking about has nothing to do with retirement.

"I know Dak, he's tremendous", Goff said. "It's all about production and play".
