Hamstring Injury Limiting Lee; Return of Wade Phillips — Days to Sunday

Adjust Comment Print

He kicked the franchise-record seventh field goal with two minutes to play in the game, giving the Rams a five-point lead.

What time, channel are the Rams and Cowboys on?

The downside of the short week for the Cowboys is that starters like Nolan Carroll (concussion) and Anthony Hitchens (knee) - who both missed Monday's game against Arizona - won't have much time to heal before Week 4 kicks off.

Another question mark will be Sean Lee's availability. He did not practice Friday, and the Cowboys list him as questionable.

Here's what you need to know. Elliot has had a tough start to the season, averaging just 3.5 yards per carry so far this season, and he has had to endure an uncertain future with a six game suspension for a domestic violence incident. "They're physical athletes", coach Jason Garrett said. "Marinelli has those guys playing really hard".

However, this season, the Rams did away with their blue and gold helmets, replacing them with blue and white ones.

The seven inactive players for the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday: QB Brandon Allen, S Lamarcus Joyner, RB Justin Davis, CB Dominique Hatfield, OLB Ejuan Price, OT Andrew Donnal and OT Cornelius Lucas. The Rams should be able to put up points against the Cowboys defense.

The defense took a step back against the Rams. Zuerlein hit from 44 yards to pull the Rams within 10-6, but on the next play of the ensuing drive, Dallas' Alfred Morris ran 70 yards. It's not realistic to expect Goff to outplay Tom Brady for the rest of the season. Gurley has taken advantage of this fact, and has rushed for 241 yards and four touchdowns.

Well, just because the Rams fumigated the essence of Jeff Fisher out of the building, there was still the kicking game that would've made ol' Fish smile. Goff's prolific start may regress somewhat over the coming months, but he finally looks like a player worthy of his lofty draft status.

Fellaini added another goal and United's third of the day in the 49th minute with a close-range header from Rashford's free-kick. At left back, Ashley Young will likely retain his spot after putting in a brilliant performance against CSKA Moscow in midweek.

In the Rams' defense, their uniforms are a work in progress. Now, those two look like potential building blocks.

That happened to the Rams against running backs who did not finish top 10 in rushing a year ago. The team offensively seems more organized than before under McVay.

Check out Wagner-McGough's full breakdown of the Rams offense here.

In 2016, Dallas was one of the best teams in the league at controlling the time of possession, averaging 31:23 per game.

Despite their 2-1 start, the Rams have had a few problems this season and one of those problems is stopping the run.

On the ground, Todd Gurley rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns in 28 attempts while Tavon Austin added 14 yards in three carries. Handling Elliott, for example, is not something the Rams would be good at.

The Rams have been tested weekly, however head coach Sean McVay has not only made the environment better for Goff but has simplified the offense, which has paid dividends. "If I had a vendetta against ... any team that fired me, I'd have a quarter of the league".

Don't worry Cowboys fans, that "sign" Witten's talking about has nothing to do with retirement. "It's all about production and play".
