The Dallas Cowboys got the win they needed last week versus the Arizona Cardinals. After losing badly to the Denver Broncos, the Cowboys needed a win, no matter how and where. This week, the Cowboys welcome a rejuvenated Los Angeles Rams squad that sits at 2-1 and has dreams of making the playoffs.
The Cowboys would like to get their running game going in a big way on Sunday. They have had success in spurts, but they haven’t dominated a game with it like they did in 2016. Once that happens, then the rest of flows, including Dak Prescott’s passing game. Prescott and the read-option along with planned roll-outs could help things open up.
On defense, the Cowboys will need to handle a Rams’ offense that is much better than in previous years. Jared Goff is getting better protection, and has an array of weapons in the passing game to utilize. He has a safety net in running back Todd Gurley who is performing at a high level. The Cowboys, even if they are missing Sean Lee, will need to play a well-rounded game on the defensive side of the ball. Justin Durant will be a key figure if Lee can’t go.
The Cowboys will be at home and need to defend their own turf, as well as keep building some momentum with a win.
