We just held the #1 rushing offense to 73 yards and 1 TD. I like our chances. 

Yes you did. This is a whole new deal. Two pro bowl type of backs are going to test your defense this time arround. Anderson found a new life in our system.

Which was right after the #24 rushing offense put up 143 and 5.7 ypc while you needed a last minute TD and 2pt conversion to win by 1. Nobody, aside from a few fans on each side, is saying this will be easy either way. But for every stat like the one you cited in your advantage one can be cited to counter or diminish it. Same goes for us.

Well, it's hard to diminish our 7-1 record at home vs. the Cowboys' 3-5 record on the road. ;)

I could’ve sworn we don’t have a home field advantage. That and we play a soft schedule anyways.

Youre right. Two probowl backs is different. Last time we played a team with 2 probowl backs they ran for 65 yards total with 3.5 YPC.

So were the Rams who have been criticized for not playing better in weeks 16 and 17. Were you playing backups week 16 when you lost 23-0 to the Colts and their 180 yards rushing? Point still stands we fans will point to those things that make our teams look better and gloss over what doesn't.

Nope. Failed to show up, shot ourselves in the foot repeatedly, had some questionable officiating. Anything that could go wrong did against the Colts. 

You ever have a game like that?

Yeah but the fun part is only Rams fans remember that, other fans look at the box score and ignore what happened during the game, kind of like what I did citing your teams bad games. Similar to our games vs the Bears we just didn't show up. Similar to our game vs the Saints where royally screwed multiple times by the Saints just like many teams have this year. Again it comes back to what I said, Cowboys fans will point out the things that make their team look better and not acknowledge the negative, just like Rams fans will. Granted we have like you guys I'm sure a few fans where it's all positive no negatives and well one fan where it's all negative :)

I’m from Vegas and bought tickets to the game the second Parker’s FG hit the uprights.  Obviously the rams are favored for a reason... dynamic offense and good pass rush.  But just on the outside chance the cowboys win the game, I want to be there for it.

Most people wonder why Nick Foles is so successful and after seeing numerous games and hearing from his coaches and teammates, they say the most significant things about him is that he’s very even-keeled and he doesn’t let anything phase him. He is almost never in panic mode and he has a short memory. 

That remind you of someone?

If Dallas is playing with the edge especially their front 7 then the it will be up to Goff to make plays deep against our secondary which can be our weak link I expect Dallas to be in a lot of man to man which is hit and miss with Dallas can be real good but has struggled it late.   It might also come down to how well your TE play in the passing game      Against Dallas blitzing on third down is usually effective but mostly we struggle when teams can get penetration on early downs with out blitzing  and if late our running game has been better off tackle then off guard It was noted that Dak rarely steps up in the pocket but we have increased the frequency of play action and Daks passing numbers have greatly improved sence Cooper arrived     

The indy game was a weird one - only loss in the last 9 games we just did tackle at all seemed unfocused and on O did everything we could not to score all our offensive possessions for the game entered Indy territory at one time   Blocked FG and dropped wide open TD helped keep us off score board 

to be honest if the Rams  don’t get a lot of YAC  and the game is relatively penalty free and the Rams don’t get more then 1 or 2 sacks or turnovers then Dallas most likely wins 

On the other hand if Dallas has trouble tackling.  Leading to A lot of 2-3 or 3-2  and Dallas has a lot of less then 3 min drives then the Rams win

Considering most games have "questionable officiating" these days and the score was that definitive, you can probably leave that out of the equation for that game.

Did you read the first 2 points? And if you didnt watch the game, you wouldnt realize the game was alot more close than the score. In the first half alone we were inside their redzone like 2-3 times alone.
