NFL Week Four Match Up: Rams at Cowboys

The Los Angeles Rams are a team with a lot of promise. "If I had a vendetta against ... any team that fired me, I'd have a quarter of the league".

This Sunday's game against the Rams marks one of only two games that the Cowboys are scheduled to play this season in the 1 p.m. ET slot.

However, it still seems hard when you try to imagine a better defense on the Rams and their decent offense being at play against their match with the Cowboys. Also, cornerbacks Nolan Carroll (concussion) and Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring), quarterback Cooper Rush, running back Darren McFadden, linebacker Anthony Hitchens and defensive end Charles Tapper are inactive. The Rams defense is 20th in the league in time of possession per teamrankings.com.

Although Lee's absence will sting, it's not all bad news when it comes to players who were considered questionable for this matchup with the Rams.

Dallas had the chance to tie it with a two-point conversion after a defensive lapse let the Cowboys score. Those four turnovers directly led to 21 of the Packers' points, which shows how costly each was. Finishing was the problem in their 35-30 loss. The defeat snapped Dallas' eight-game home winning streak. The most obvious is the jet sweep itself, but these next few examples will involve running back Todd Gurley. After a calamitous rookie season, former No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff looks transformed under McVay's tutelage.

Lee, who was named an All Pro last season and has played in the last two Pro Bowls, is the Cowboys' second-leading tackler with the coaches crediting him with 29 stops in the first three games. Sullivan was not a starter in 2016 with the Redskins, but in 2015, he allowed just 2.5 sacks with the Vikings.

Police said up to 40,000 people gathered outside the devolved government's economy ministry in the city, which was searched. A pro-independence group says that about 2,500 supporters were attending the protest in Hospitalet.

Gurley had a 12-yard catch on third-and-5 to help the Rams get to the two-minute warning before Zuerlein's seventh field goal, a 33-yarder with 1:55 remaining.

Los Angeles averages 35.7 points per game so far this season. Dak Prescott was being Dak Prescott, and the defense was holding up better than most had anticipated.

What time, channel are the Rams and Cowboys on?

In the Rams' defense, their uniforms are a work in progress. Phillips had a 34-22 record with the Cowboys. Forcing them to do so more frequently could open up Watkins for some backbreaking deep shots later in the game.

Still down two, the Cowboys tried yet again and Prescott's pass was intercepted, only the Rams were then hit with a defensive holding penalty, giving Dallas another try.

When asked on Wednesday what makes the offense run so efficiently, Woods said, "everything" - alluding to the team's ability to combine the passing game with the ground game along with their consistency in first-down situations. The Cowboys scored three plays later, on Elliott's 1-yard run, to take a 17-6 lead.
