Los Angeles Rams vs. Dallas Cowboys: Prediction, preview, pick to win

WR Ryan Switzer

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

Dallas had an eight-point lead at the half. It also helps that GM Les Snead made sure to surround him with quality weapons on offense, which is something he didn't have last season.

The Rams' offensive renaissance extends beyond mere statistics, however. 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 1-yard plunge came after a review overturned a touchdown. Goff's prolific start may regress somewhat over the coming months, but he finally looks like a player worthy of his lofty draft status. Dallas has done much better going 2-1 against the spread.

The Rams and Cowboys traded punts to being the second half, but then L.A. scored 10 straight points to take the lead.

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

The Cowboys, with a final chance to win the game, got the ball to midfield but turned it over on downs. It's about time for Ezekiel Elliott to look more like last season's version and prove to be more than Los Angeles can handle.

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

Warner, Finch power Australia to 334/5 in 4th ODI
I think the wicket was really good to bat on and from that point of view you have to give them a bit of advantage there. Interestingly, all the four wickets came off deliveries that kept low after being bowled short or slow.

There's a huge difference between 3-1 and 2-2 in the NFL.

And while receiver Dez Bryant had five catches for 98 yards in what was his best outing of the season, something was still off on the Prescott-Bryant connection. During his 15 years with the Cowboys, he has often been a team captain making decisions for the team.

Though giving up 42 points to Denver in Week 1 wasn't pretty, the Dallas defense has taking meaningful steps since a year ago. Still, it's hard to match DeMarcus Lawrence, who had three sacks and three tackles for loss.

It is the first game Lee has missed because of injury since the 2015 season finale. Dallas got another shot after a defensive holding call.

The Los Angeles Rams are a team with a lot of promise. The excitement will be palpable if the Rams prove their signs of improvement have been more than a mere fluke.

Defensively, the Rams need Aaron Donald to take over the trenches. And while the Rams began the next possession on their own 12-yard line, they were able to use an 11-play drive to burn 4:26 off the clock and capped it with a 30-yard field goal.

Before taking the head coaching job with the Rams back in January, Sean McVay spent six seasons as an assistant coach with the Redskins, which means he's highly familiar with the Cowboys and their defensive personnel.
