The Dallas Cowboys and the Los Angeles Rams are not meeting expectations early on this season;
however, they are doing so in opposite directions. One team is exceeding all the low expectations and the other has been shockingly bad coming off a Super Bowl victory.
The Cowboys have been underdogs in three of their four games so far, nevertheless,
they have a 3-1 record even while missing Dak Prescott, Tyron Smith, Conner McGovern, Michael Gallup,
Dalton Schultz, and Jayron Kearse. They are currently on a three-game winning streak with unheralded Cooper Rush under center.
The defense is a top five unit and leading the team to wins just two years removed from being historically bad.
This is a credit to Dan Quinn, but his toughest test thus far will be against the Rams on Sunday.
Los Angeles will have to wake up from their Super Bowl hangover though because they aren’t playing anywhere close to that level from just eight months ago.
In four games the Rams have scored over 20 points just once and put up ten points or less twice.
Compared that to last season where the Rams scored ten or less once all year and scored more than 30 seven times.
This Sunday, these two teams will be a part of one of the bigger non division matchups of the year.
to another level. Here are what the Cowboys and Rams need to do to get a conference victory Sunday.
