Suprising Rams take down Cowboys

Cole Beasley Keith Smith

WR Dez Bryant has TD catch in all three career meetings with Rams, looking for third straight game with TD grab. A major reason for Goff's success this season has been the offensive line. While the Rams line is a superior unit to last year's sieve, these are two elite pass rushers playing on their home turf.

Goff showed more poise in first-year coach Sean McVay's offense, throwing for 255 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. The Rams have allowed the fifth most rushing yards in the week as teams average 139 yards per game on them. It is also worth noting that Lee recorded a single-season career-high 93 solo tackles last season. The teams have split eight postseason meeting, all during a 13-season span from 1973-85 during the Rams' first tenure in Los Angeles.

Goff finally looks comfortable dropping back to pass, although he does have the tendency to back up into pressure when pass rushers break into the backfield. Durant played 32 snaps against the Cardinals after playing a combined three snaps the first two weeks of the season.

The Rams have benefited from new additions at wide receiver including Sammy Watkins and Cooper Kupp.

The Rams went on a 16-0 run to take a lead they would never relinquish. There is something wrong with what was the league's top-ranked running game.

Prescott was 20 of 36 for 252 yards with three touchdowns. His yards-per-game has improved dramatically from a year ago, jumping from 55.3 to 80.3. They hung big numbers on two weak opponents, scoring 46 against the Colts and 41 against the 49ers.

Offensively, the Rams are averaging 35.7 points and 374.3 total yards (279.0 in passing and 95.3 in rushing) per game.




The LA Rams have gotten off to an impressive start in their young season, and will have an opportunity this Sunday to prove to the rest of the doubters on exactly how good they are.

Against the run is a completely different story. 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.

This will be his first game in Dallas since the team fired him.

If the Cowboys defense isn't at full strength on Sunday, the Rams could be in the ideal position to pull off a huge upset.

There is a lot to like about this rendition of the Rams, but it is still too soon to celebrate. The closest team behind them is the Seahawks at 1-2.

Jared Goff watched fellow rookie Dak Prescott's remarkable debut for the Dallas Cowboys previous year while the top overall pick by the Los Angeles Rams sat more than half the season and struggled when he finally did play.
