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

WR Ryan Switzer

This isn't necessarily a must-win game for either team, but being 3-1 by the time the game comes to a close and having a two-game cushion above the.500 mark one month into the season would be a nice goal achieved for either one of these teams. Dallas has won the past three meetings, including a 34-31 victory in the most recent meeting in 2014.

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

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.


Rams running back Todd Gurley finished with 121 rushing yards on 23 carries and also caught seven passes for 94 yards and one touchdown. To put the scoring outburst in better perspective, two playoff teams from previous 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. Although Elliott has struggled in his past two games with just 88 total rushing yards, the Cowboys aren't going to give up on him, especially when you consider the past two games were played against two teams that both have a top-10 rushing defense in Denver and Arizona. And it's not realistic to expect Gurley to score touchdowns at this rate.

Donald is an elite lineman still working into football shape after his training camp holdout and a breakout game looms on the horizon. If these teams perform offensively as they did a week ago, then this figures to be a down-to-the-wire affair in Big D on Sunday afternoon. He has the league's third-best rating while Prescott languishes in the middle of the pack (88.9) a year after setting an NFL rookie record at 104.9. 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. Other times, the quarterback misses open receivers. Still, it's hard to match DeMarcus Lawrence, who had three sacks and three tackles for loss. In the receiving end, Brice Butler posted 90 yards and a touchdown in two receptions while Terrance Williams added 47 yards in three receptions. Dallas also had an impressive Week 1 performance against the Giants. "I know these guys over the weekend there were a lot of different decisions".

Last week, all 30 NFL teams that played Sunday and Monday showed some form of protest or solidarity during the national anthem. After this week, the Cowboys aren't scheduled to play another game in the early time slot until their Week 17 finale at Philadelphia, which could get end up getting flexed to primetime. DT Maliek Collins had two sacks against Arizona for second career multi-sack game. TE Jason Witten has a scoring reception in three of his past four home games. That unit has to be missing Sean Lee. The defeat snapped Dallas' eight-game home winning streak.
