The Rams are being the Cowboys so far this season; in that every week I keep coming up with reasons why they're going to pull their heads out of their asses and play like they can and every week (other than Cooper Kupp) they don't do it. I'm not giving them the benefit of the doubt this week. Cowboys win, 26-20.

Its not all that hard to figure out. The Rams are just not that good. I didn't think they were all that great last year either, they could have easily lost any of their postseason games, incl the Super Bowl.

They invested everything into getting a few star players, and for the most part the rest of their roster stinks. Their OL sux and their defense is basically 3 or 4 players and nothing else.

I don't think the game is a gimmee for us or anything but I also kind of expect us to win unless we have a slew of turnovers.

Amazing what an average QB with a noodle arm can do to energize the fan base. No more talk of poor coaching for Dak; no more talk about a lack of talent on offense; no more talking about the OL not giving Dak time. We actually have folks predicting a victory against the SB champs. I gotta laugh......

They were the Super Bowl champs last yr, they are a different team this year and I don't care how much people want to gawk over them, they have not played well in any of their games this year. They are that not that far off from being 0-4 and their two wins are against bad teams. They are certainly beatable by us, but I think like I said above we have to avoid turnovers (which we have done so far) to have a good chance. Our defense is capable of shutting them down and our special teams are good (qualifier on that, this new deep snapper thing is a big question mark until we see otherwise) A bad deep snapper can have a huge impact on games.

Cooper Rush doesn't do anything to energize me but he has played better for the most part than Prescott did in week one vs Tampa. Doesn't mean it will continue, but so far he has been adequate.

Correct.

Rams are also coming in off short week in a game they were physically beaten up by the Niners.

I like our chances this week, barring turnovers and bad snaps from new long snapper.

Could be, though I was thinking that was more likely at Philly next week.

BB is probably right, after struggling for a month and not playing well in a bad loss Monday, they might be pretty desperate. That said, I still don't think they are all that good and are very beatable.

I think they're beatable but they have great coaching and 3 weeks of film and book on our C+ backup quarterback. It happens all the time, a backup wins three or four games then reality bites.

Our D and the myriad of problems they have with their O right now give me some doubt and might make the game close regardless. But they need a "get right" game at home and we're it. LA 17 Dallas 13.

I don’t have a good feeling about this game. We will lose by 3 points

24-21 Rams

I hope I’m wrong

If we get down by two scores and Rush is forced to throw throw throw, we'll be in deep shit. Gotta get the run game going and play keepaway.
