Everyone is waiting to see if quarterback Tony Romo will play with a broken finger and as of now, he’s expected to be under center. If Romo can’t go, the ageless one Brad Johnson will step in and command the offense. The Cowboys will be quite a different team if Johnson has to play, although he’ll have plenty of weapons at his disposal with T.O., Marion Barber, Jason Witten and the newly acquired Roy Williams. The Rams meanwhile, are coming off their first win of the season after replacing head coach Scott Linehan. In Jim Haslett’s first game as interim head coach, St. Louis played inspired in a road win over the Redskins. Even though the Rams looked brutal before last week, you have to like the home team getting that many points coming off a big win. And with the injuries and turmoil going on in Dallas, we think St. Louis can at least pull off a cover. We predict the Cowboys over the Rams 20-17.
