NFL | Dallas 22 @ L.A. Rams 10 | 10/09 | 8:25 PM UTC
ANALYSIS: It’s been a rough start to the season for the defending Super Bowl champions, and given their offensive line issues are not resolved, it should be another tough one Sunday. The Rams will be tasked with keeping Matthew Stafford’s jersey clean one week after he barely stood upright taking seven sacks against the 49ers. The problem? They will be attempting to do so against Micah Parsons and Demarcus Lawrence. The Cowboys, meanwhile, continue to play with house money as Dak Prescott remains sidelined. Cooper Rush is winning because he’s not making mistakes, which will be key again in Los Angeles where it may well feel like a Dallas home game. L.A. has been outscored 55-19 in their two losses against good defenses (Bills, 49ers) and only won by a combined 12 points against two mediocre-at-best teams in the Falcons and Cardinals. The Cowboys could win outright, but even if the Rams come out on top, it should be close.
