Will Cooper Kupp bounce back for Rams in Week 4 against Cowboys?

Cowboys DC Rod Marinelli: All Rams star RB Todd Gurley needs is 2 seconds to burn us Will Cooper Kupp bounce back for Rams in Week 4 against Cowboys?

That happened to the Rams against running backs who did not finish top 10 in rushing previous year. Scandrick is playing with a broken left hand and provides the Dallas secondary with a veteran awareness of how a young quarterback like Jared Goff might attack.

On offense, center John Sullivan was banged up last week, but he practiced and should play. "Just being in that division the last couple of years, a lot of respect for them". TE Jason Witten fourth all-time with 1,107 catches, but had just one against Cardinals.

The Cowboys haven't said what they plan to do in their first home game since Trump's comments after kneeling as a team before and standing during the anthem - both times locked arm in arm - prior to a 28-17 win at Arizona on Monday.

Goff finally looks comfortable dropping back to pass, although he does have the tendency to back up into pressure when pass rushers break into the backfield. Zuerlein hit from 44 yards to pull the Rams within 10-6, but on the next play of the ensuing drive, Dallas' Alfred Morris ran 70 yards.

Goff got a big boost with the offseason addition of Sammy Watkins in a trade. The Rams turned that deficit into an 8-point lead. The defense struggled as the game went on and some late miscues by LA allowed San Fran to crawl back into it, but it wasn't enough, as Sean McVay and the Rams moved to 2-1. Receiver Tavon Austin will speed across the formation right before the snap. There is something wrong with what was the league's top-ranked running game. His yards-per-game has improved dramatically from a year ago, jumping from 55.3 to 80.3. Zuerlein's fifth field goal of the day gave Los Angeles a 29-24 lead. "I think he makes everybody around him better but injuries are a part of the game and if he's able to play, obviously we'd love to have him but if he's not, put somebody else in there and we'll keep rolling". It's about time for Ezekiel Elliott to look more like last season's version and prove to be more than Los Angeles can handle.

Against the run is a completely different story.

FAST FACTS: Rams QB Jared Goff ranks third in the National Football League with a 118.2 rating, behind only Kansas City's Alex Smith (132.7) and New England's Tom Brady (121.5). The game started slow for both sides, but Dallas QB Dak Prescott took over the game after his 2nd quarter TD run that sparked the Cowboys team.

Star defensive tackle Aaron Donald is still getting into his groove after sitting out of training camp in the hopes of receiving a contract extension. The Rams' current defensive coordinator is in his first season with LA and has already revitalized the defense, especially in their pass rush. The bad news is safety Lamarcus Joyner is out and his back up, Cody Davis, will likely also be out.

Which is one of the reasons the Cowboys have an edge in this game. They'll be back in action next week at the Coliseum, taking on the division-rival Seahawks.

For their troubles, they face the defenses of the Seahawks and the Jaguars the following two weeks, so Los Angeles will have a chance to prove their mettle early in the season.
