The Dallas Cowboys’ next opponent is coming off a short week after losing to their rival the San Fransisco 49ers on Monday night, while Dallas coming off another win and will get an extra day of rest.
Now, the Los Angeles Rams head into Week 5 trying to figure out their offensive line situation along with other injuries in their secondary. The Cowboys, on the other hand, got good news about both wide receiver Noah Brown and Quinton Bohanna who exited last week’s game against the Washington Commanders, both having a chance to play next week.
The big cloud over this game that has kept Las Vegas from putting lines down on the game is the status of quarterback Dak Prescott who is chomping at the bit to get back on the football field. This week, his practice participation all depends on how his thumb responds to rehab and if the swelling goes down.
The Cowboys also have two other players who are looking to get back on the football field in safety Jayron Kearse and rookie linebacker Damone Clark who could be activated off PUP this week. The Cowboys will have 21 days to evaluate Clark and decide if he will play this season.
Things are looking better for the Cowboys going into this game compared to the Rams, but with the talent the reigning champs currently have, they are still a dangerous team that can stop the Cowboys’ momentum.
Let’s take a look at this Rams team and see what Dallas will be going up against this week in “Know Thy Enemy”.
