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.
The Cowboys have won and covered their last three after losing the opener against the Buccaneers.. The defense has played well, but to be fair, the last two wins were against the Giants and Washington. The Rams looked awful on Monday night, but they bounce back Sunday. I’m looking for a Rams' double-digit win. Take them to cover.
The Rams are a hot mess, a consequence of widespread injuries and a possible Super Bowl hangover. Matthew Stafford leads all NFL QBs in one dubious category with six interceptions and is tied for second in another with 16 sacks. He has hit the dirt seven times in two of his four games, so Dallas - which is tied for second with 15 sacks - is licking its chops. Rams C Coleman Shelton (ankle) is out, so Stafford will line up behind the team’s fifth set of linemen in as many games. A straight-up Cowboys win with QB Cooper Rush again at the helm would come as no surprise.
