Los Angeles Rams at Dallas Cowboys - 10/1/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Rams gave up an average of 232 rushing yards per game in the last two weeks.

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.

In 2016, the Rams averaged 14.0 points per game.

As impressive as the LA offense has been, their defense has been equally as concerning. The Rams have notched 10 sacks in three games but also sprung a few leaks while giving up 19 fourth-quarter points in a 41-39 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on September 21. They hung big numbers on two weak opponents, scoring 46 against the Colts and 41 against the 49ers. It will be easy for the Dallas team to score, taking advantage of this fact. The key to it all, finally having an offensive line that can keep a clean pocket. Romo completed 18 of 23 passes for 217 yards and one interception.

BENGALS 31, BROWNS 7: Andy Dalton threw three of his four touchdown passes in the first half and Cincinnati's offense found the ideal opponent to work out some early season struggles.

The win was Arizona's second overtime triumph this season - it's the first time they've had two extra-time wins in the same season since 2011, when they went 4-0 in such contests.

Other parts of the offense have undergone a rebirth as well.

The Cowboys meanwhile look to continue their success in October as they covered all four games a season ago, but in their last 10 overall they have covered in only three and in this spot where the line is flirting around the touchdown mark it might be tough for them to improve on that mark.

Jameis Winston threw for 332 and three touchdowns without an interception, and Nick Folk kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give Tampa Bay a victory at home. In his entire first two seasons in the NFL, Gurley had zero catching touchdowns.

Anthony Zettel led a ferocious performance by Detroit's defense with two sacks, four hurries and a fumble recovery as the visiting Lions forced three turnovers while holding Minnesota scoreless in the second half. Jared Goff on executing on crucial fourth quarter drives against Dallas:"You try not to make them any bigger than they are". And if you can't watch, you can certainly listen on Sirius XM Radio.

The Rams, newly relocated from St. Louis to their old home turf in Los Angeles, got a pass on last Sunday's protests. This will allow Dallas to control time of possession and get Elliott back on track, making him a valuable asset in all fantasy formats this week. LA (+6) will most likely be the popular bet on this spread, but I actually like Dallas here.

The Cowboys led for the majority of this game and early on it seemed as though they had the game under control.

Elliott had 85 yards on 21 carries for his third straight sub-100-yard game, matching the longest such streak from last season.

If they can come into Dallas and leave with a victory, it could solidify their legitimacy.

Ezekiel Elliott pretended to wipe his face with a towel following his signature "feed me" gesture to celebrate his first touchdown. I think we helped our team win.

Los Angeles wide receivers Tavon Austin and Sammy Watkins both went through the National Football League concussion protocol following the Rams' win at San Francisco in Week 3.
