Los Angeles Rams at Dallas Cowboys - 10/1/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Which Cowboys Rookies Should Receive More Playing Time

While Elliott searches for his 2016 form, second-year quarterback Dak Prescott accounted for three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing) in Monday's win over the Arizona Cardinals and has thrown just two interceptions in 107 attempts. To put the scoring outburst in better perspective, two playoff teams from past year - Giants (37) and Bengals (33) have yet to reach 40 points in three combined games, while the Rams have hit that number in one game, twice already.

The Rams are now 24th in yards and 26th in points.

The Rams' offensive renaissance extends beyond mere statistics, however. He's fourth in National Football League with 118.2 rating. The 1-yard plunge came after a review overturned a touchdown. A regression is coming. The offensive line has considerably improved in pass protection with the additions of left tackle Andrew Whitworth and center John Sullivan, yielding just three sacks on the year. And with another tough matchup against Dallas scheduled for Sunday afternoon, Goff will heavily rely on his group of wide receivers once again since this has the potential to be quite the high-scoring contest, especially with Kupp.

Gurley exploited the Cowboys linebackers all day, rushing for 121 yards and recording seven catches for 94 yards, including a 53-yard touchdown.

Yet despite those positive developments, the Rams still lack a statement win under McVay.

On the bright side, the Rams now sit about five deep at wide receiver and, if Jared Goff can get decent protection, they should still be able to put up some points against Dallas.

The Cowboys entered 2017 with Super Bowl aspirations, and their 2-1 start has done little to change their trajectory.

Watkins is looking to be a good fit with 13 receptions for 194 yards and two touchdowns after being acquired from the Buffalo Bills and he and Woods (10 for 169) have combined for nine receptions of 20 or more yards. The Cowboys are 18th in defending the pass (227.7 yards per game) and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence is running rampant with a league-best 6.5 sacks. Now, the Cowboys must beat a quality Green Bay team to avoid dipping under.500 for the first time this season. The Cowboys scored three plays later, on Elliott's 1-yard run, to take a 17-6 lead. Lee has been nursing a hamstring injury and hasn't practiced all week - not a good sign. All Rams players were also standing. Dallas got another shot after a defensive holding call.

"The Cowboys will be without linebacker Sean Lee today against the Los Angeles Rams, according to a source", writes Archer.

In an epic Thursday night showdown, the LA Rams were able to defeat divisional counterpart San Francisco 41-39 in a nail biter.

Defensively, the Rams need Aaron Donald to take over the trenches. But Johnny Hekker boomed a 62-yard punt and pinned the Cowboys back at their 14-yard line, and they were forced to punt for the first time in the game.
