Dallas Cowboys vs Los Angeles Rams: Preview and predictions

However, it still seems hard when you try to imagine a better defense on the Rams and their decent offense being at play against their match with the Cowboys. Gurley churned out over 100 yards in the game and added a 53-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in the third quarter. Going up against the Rams could be the tonic he needs with Los Angeles ranked 29th in rushing defense (139.0 yards per game) despite the presence of standout defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

A year ago, the Los Angeles Rams lost their final seven games and finished 4-12. I like the Cowboys at home. The two lead the Rams in receiving yards with 194 and 169 respectively. Davis was 30 of 42 for 327 yards, three touchdowns and two picks, one that was returned for a touchdown by Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter that gave Dallas the lead and the win with just six minutes to go in the game. The defeat snapped Dallas' eight-game home winning streak.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff has benefited significantly from having Sean McVay take over as head coach. They ran 16 plays on their first four possessions of the second half and picked up just two first downs. But the Cowboys will control the clock and the line of scrimmage. They will both be desperate to get to 3-1 as well as avoid a 2-2. Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein booted six field goals.

In case of an emergency, fullback Keith Smith is available to play at linebacker today against Los Angeles, as it was the position he held before being shifted to the offensive side of the ball. Dak Prescott was being Dak Prescott, and the defense was holding up better than most had anticipated.

The early time slot isn't the only schedule oddity for the Cowboys this week - they'll also be drawing the short-end of the stick when it comes to rest.

In addition to the electrical grid, road and bridges have been washed out and ports are operating at a limited capacity. There's so much happening in the world right now, and sometimes it's hard to know where to turn or how to even help.

In the Rams' defense, their uniforms are a work in progress.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (21) and quarterback Dak Prescott (4) walk off the field after an unsuccessful two-point conversion attempt on a pass to wide receiver Terrance Williams in the second half of an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, in Arlington, Texas. Phillips had a 34-22 record with the Cowboys.

While the Rams' offense had to punt on its ensuing drive, the unit got the ball back after returner Ryan Switzer muffed the return.

It's been widely reported that the Rams will overhaul their uniforms when they move into their new Inglewood stadium in 2020.

When asked on Wednesday what makes the offense run so efficiently, Woods said, "everything" - alluding to the team's ability to combine the passing game with the ground game along with their consistency in first-down situations. The computer is taking the Cowboys to cover the spread, and the under on the point total.
