    Main Storylines to Watch

    Will the Cowboys make any changes to how they run their offense after having the bye week to gameplan? The Cowboys have operated their offense as one of the slowest teams in the league this season. That is quite the change after their previous offensive coordinator, Kellen Moore, led a faster attack. The Cowboys are still winning games, but their offense has yet to find their rhythm. The whole offense has been Tony Pollard and Ceedee Lamb. It will be interesting to see if they can get more out of WR Brandin Cooks, WR Michael Gallup, or TE Jake Ferguson to further aide this offensive attack.

    Are the Rams legit playoff contenders? Many predicted the Rams to be in the running for the number one overall pick at the beginning of the season. Sean McVay looks reenergized in coaching this team with zero expectations coming in. The Rams are hanging around .500 but it’s hard to tell if they are legit playoff contenders. Beating the Cowboys can solidify their status as playoff contenders. Either way, the Rams have impressed many with their start to the season, despite having a roster of so many unknown names prior to the start of the season.
