On Sunday, that that streak will be coming to an end.

On the one hand, this is a terrible assignment for Feeley. Remember that the Dallas defense just had a tremendous effort against the Patriots and their vast array of weapons. How are the winless Rams going to do anything against them?
But that very thinking will be the best thing to happen to Feeley. Expectations aren't exactly high for the Rams in this game. Their chances at beating the Cowboys in Dallas were slim anyway.
The St. Louis defensive secondary has been awful this year. Going against Miles Austin and Dez Bryant doesn't exactly indicate that a good game is likely.
But if Marcus Spears and DeMarcus Ware were going to give Bradford trouble, how are they going to do against a quarterback who hasn't started a game in four years?
That's really the prevailing logic here. The low expectations will be a good thing, just not anywhere near good enough.
The Rams will need to use Steven Jackson early and often. Dallas will have no problem keying on the run.
It's not like Feeley was ever an elite, top-of-the-line quarterback. There really is no past "magic" to revive here.
This was going to be one of the week's biggest blowouts, even with a healthy Bradford. Low expectations aren't a bad thing, but they won't help in this one. Feeley will have a tough day and the Cowboys will win in a blowout.
