OUR PREDICTION: The Rams are starting to gain some national attention because the improvenent of Jared Goff under Sean McVay. The Rams look component on offense for the first time since Mike Martz left and they deserve praise for that. But they have yet to beat a team that won't be picking outside of the top 5 in next April's draft and Wade Phillips' defense remains a work in progress. The Cowboys haven't been able to establish their running game the last two weeks but they will today. The Rams have had all sorts of issues slowing down running backs to this point, so Ezekiel Elliott should have a field day as Dallas romps.
