There’s a large number of speak about “Cooper” this week because the Cowboys get in a position for the Rams.
Can Cooper Rush win 4 immediately video games this yr instead of Dak Prescott? Can the Cowboys work out easy methods to prevent Rams receiver Cooper Kupp?
Either manner, the ones two “Coopers” must play an enormous position within the consequence of Sunday’s sport at SoFi Stadium.
The DallasCowboys.com body of workers provides their ‘intestine feeling’ for this Week 4 matchup.
Kyle Youmans: This is a real instance of a “gut feeling” this week. My thoughts is telling me that the reigning Super Bowl champions are at house and are disenchanted after dropping a contention sport towards San Francisco. They’re going to discover a rhythm on offense as a result of Sean McVay does not move very lengthy with no need any luck. However, this isn’t that week. The self assurance stage within the defensive unit is at an all-time top and there is a momentum on that aspect of the ball that are supposed to disrupt any Rams try to get again not off course. Dallas has to begin rapid, just like they did towards Cincinnati, and I feel they’ll. Give me the Cowboys 27-17 at the street.
Rob Phillips: Fun reality from my colleague Kyle Youmans: The Rams’ 0-1 get started this season was once the primary time Sean McVay has ever been below .500 with L.A. The protecting champs don’t seem to be used to that. You know they’re going to be motivated to steer clear of 2-3 Sunday. And one day, the Rams offense gets not off course. (They had 3 purple zone journeys towards the 49ers that ended in simply 9 issues.) All that stated, I’m driving with the Cowboys protection as soon as once more and taking Dallas in some other slightly low-scoring sport, one thing like 23-20. The Rams offensive line is coping with a couple of accidents, and the Dallas protection is getting more healthy with Jayron Kearse on his as far back as the lineup. The key for me is discovering a solution to re-establish the run sport with Jason Peters in doubt to play Sunday. The Cowboys need to get out of second- and third-and-long. If they may be able to steer clear of the ones pitfalls towards Aaron Donald, they’re going to have an excellent likelihood to get to 4-1.
Mickey Spagnola: Well, let’s get started right here. “We’re nobody’s underdog,” because of Cowboys head trainer Mike McCarthy. Let’s move. And why would any trainer in his proper thoughts give any credence to a making a bet line. But you understand what, earlier than McCarthy even stated that, had the primary line of my Friday column already written: “Why not the Cowboys,” as in, why cannot they beat the Rams. Yeah, they are the Rams, however they are not the similar Rams Super Bowl successful workforce. Just really feel just like the Cowboys protection will dangle a suffering offense to a cheap collection of issues. Maybe even give a contribution some issues to the reason. Give me the Cowboys, 24-21, putting in subsequent Sunday night time’s combat for first position within the NFC East with the Eagles.
Patrik Walker: The Cowboys have 99 issues going into their Week 5 bout with the Los Angeles Rams, however they are hoping Aaron Donald is not one. The perennial game-wrecker won’t most effective wish to be situated and accounted for on each and every unmarried offensive snap for Cooper Rush and Co., however that is most effective part the combat. The different part is preventing him, and that shall be a long way from simple, particularly with fellow long run Hall of Famer Bobby Wagner in the back of him and All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey stalking the secondary. That stated, it is also a Rams workforce this is in shambles at the offensive line – most likely opening the flood gates for Neville Gallimore, Chauncey Golston, Trysten Hill and Quinton Bohanna. If the Cowboys can dominate there and stay Matthew Stafford not able to head thru his reads, there shall be takeaway alternatives for all – from the secondary ahead – and the Rams will have to themselves account for a game-wrecker in Micah Parsons (together with DeMarcus Lawrence and others) for a Cowboys protection that leads the league in pressures. It will really feel like a little of a house sport for the Cowboys as neatly, so give me Dallas in a detailed one. 24-20, Cowboys
Nick Eatman: I’m seeking to block out all of the further stuff when thiking about this sport – however in the long run it’s not relevant. Does it topic the Rams are protecting Super Bowl champs? Not in reality as a result of they are now not taking part in that manner, however even though they are nonetheless a excellent workforce with nice avid gamers, ultimate yr does not topic right here in October. Ok, what about taking part in at the street? Yeah, we have now been to SoFi earlier than and plenty of video games in LA. The Cowboys fanatics do not simply “travel well,” they reside there. Not an element. What concerning the reality the Cowboys have gained 3 immediately in the back of Cooper Rush. When is it going to finish? Who is aware of, however all of us concept it would be over via now. They should not have to win 4 immediately, only one in a row this week. And what concerning the level unfold being 5 issues for the Rams? Well, Vegas hasn’t picked the Cowboys sport proper all season. They’ve been no less than 10 issues off in each and every consequence. So, that being stated, I’ll take the Cowboys’ protection to keep an eye on the Rams once more and win this one 20-14.
