When the St. Louis Rams and Dallas Cowboys meet for an NFL Week 3 matchup at the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday, they will do so as two clubs that feel a whole lot better about themselves than they did this same time last week.
Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.
The Dallas Cowboys enter the 2014 NFL season with one of the worst defenses in the NFL. This means that they have to keep their opponents off the field to win, making DeMarco Murray the most important player on the team.
Both clubs are 2-3 after five games, but now it’s the Texans who have lost three in a row.
Terrible grades for everyone is what the Rams are going to get, after their disappointing 31-7 loss in Dallas on Sunday.
Dallas scores early & often in blowout at home.
Both clubs are coming off Week 2 losses, and need to get back on the winning track or risk falling behind division foes that have already gotten off to hot starts.
Week 3 preseason matchup will have former Oklahoma teammates Sam Bradford and Demarco Murray playing on opposite sides.
Quarterback A.J. Feeley was mediocre in his first start since 2007 and Steven Jackson ran for 70 yards and a touchdown.
