Many people are expecting the 0-5 Rams to be blown out be the Cowboys, who are a talented 2-3 team desperate for a win. However, I think that the Rams are just as desperate, and will keep the game close, especially considering how similar these two teams have been this year. That may be a stretch for some, but think about it:
While St. Louis has one of the worst records in the league, I feel that they've had a chance to win many of their games, if it weren't for key mistakes at the wrong times. This is a team that is banged up, and is struggling with a lack of discipline, as their receivers have been dropping balls, and many of their players have been committing stupid penalties.
While they have been more successful, the story of Dallas has been similar, as they have could have easily been 5-0 or 4-1 if it weren't for a couple of blown leads in the fourth quarter.
They have even won in spite of their mistakes, most notably on Monday Night against the Redskins, where they couldn't get into the end zone, and had to settle for six field goals to get the win.
In that game, they struggled with horrible receiver and offensive line play, much like the problems that have plagued the Rams all year long.
While I do think the Cowboys will win this one, I think it will be a game filled with stupid mistakes and lack of discipline, which will, of course, concern Cowboys fans for the future of this team.
While I do think both teams are talented, they both are struggling with sloppy play, and I expect a sloppy win by the Cowboys, 17-13.
