RAMS (2-1) AT COWBOYS (2-1)
No one could have predicted that after two seasons as the NFL’s worst offense the Rams would enter this game as the league’s highest-scoring team. Quarterback Jared Goff is at the controls of a unit that scored 41 points in last week’s victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Goff began the week ranked behind Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer, Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Eli Manning with 817 yards passing. Goff has completed 70% of his passes, five for touchdowns, with only one interception. Robert Woods had a team-best 108 yards receiving against the 49ers. Receivers Sammy Watkins and Tavon Austin suffered concussions against the 49ers but are cleared to play against the Cowboys. Running back Todd Gurley was named the NFL offensive player of the month after scoring six touchdowns and amassing 241 yards rushing and 140 yards receiving. The offensive line, anchored by left tackle Andrew Whitworth, has given up only three sacks and cleared the way for Gurley. The Cowboys rank 11th in the NFL in total defense, giving up 315 yards per game. End Demarcus Lawrence has an NFL-best 61/2 sacks. Linebacker Sean Lee did not practice this week because of a hamstring injury. He is listed as questionable.
