The game is a battle between second-year quarterbacks with the Los Angeles Rams having Jared Goff and the Dallas Cowboys with Dak Prescott, as both were drafted to their teams in 2016 with Goff being the No. 1 overall pick and Prescott being selected in the fourth round. McVay has also found ways of getting running back Todd Gurley involved in the offense.
The disappointment so far with this Rams squad is its defense, specifically the run defense.
Lee, who strained his hamstring in the final two minutes of Monday night's win at Arizona, is among the seven Cowboys players who are inactive for Sunday's game. The home team would quickly advance down the field with a five-play, 75-yard drive, capped by a Prescott 28-yard touchdown pass to tight end James Hanna. Dallas remains one of the most talented teams in the league and has only dropped one game at home over the past 12 months.
Then Goff connected with Gurley down the seam on the right side, which the running back took in for a 53-yard touchdown.
Donald is an elite lineman still working into football shape after his training camp holdout and a breakout game looms on the horizon.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant said Friday that the team will no longer demonstrate with regard to the national anthem, according to Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Everyone else should be healthy enough in what has become one of the most prolific offenses in the league. Woods, who has five such catches, good be the main target against the Cowboys depending on how well Watkins bounces back from a concussion suffered against the 49ers.
Demarcus Lawrence has suddenly emerged as one of the best pass rushers in the league and last Monday night he nearly single handedly dominated the Arizona Cardinals offensive front, recording three sacks.
As impressive as that was, had the Rams scored a touchdown instead of kicking a field goal, it would've put the game well out of reach for Dallas. "I know these guys over the weekend there were a lot of different decisions".
Despite his sentimental ties to his former team, Phillips must still have his defense ready to play at a high level. Lawrence said. "I want to be here forever". Goff has almost doubled his yard per attempt to 10.1, completed over 70 percent of his passes, and posted a passer rating of 118.2, all top-3 marks in the NFL.
The Rams are now 3-1 on the season in their first year under head coach Sean McVay. DT Maliek Collins had two sacks against Arizona for second career multi-sack game. That unit has to be missing Sean Lee.
"I made my mind up on this issue, that I wasn't going to comment other than I am very proud of the fact that the Dallas Cowboys and our players have always stood for the flag and the recognition for the flag always".
