ST. LOUIS, Mo. --The Rams were hoping for some answers when they boarded a Texas-bound plane before Week 3.
Yes, this offense could fire all cylinders before a double-digit lead was hanging over its head. Yes, this defense could present a decent pass defense. And yes, there was still so much reason for optimism when it came to Jeff Fisher's team.
As Fisher and his squad headed home following an embarrassing 31-7 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, the baggage they towed was a whole lot heavier. Those issues mentioned above remain while a bigger, grimmer question looms.
Was all this preseason chatter about the Rams just that -- hollow hyperbole bound to make everyone who bought in to it seem foolish?
Maybe that's a bit strong. And if the Rams (1-2) simply lost to the Cowboys, it would be uncalled for. But it wasn't that they lost. It was how.
"I can't explain it," Fisher told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch after the game.

After a week of discussion about how the Cowboys needed to commit to the run the team, and their Quarterback who took some heat from Cowboys defenders this week for audibling away from rush calls too frequently, kept the ball on the ground and controlled the tempo against the St. Louis Rams. Romo did his part, too, with three touchdowns and a 70.8 completion percentage but Murray’s...
According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys would like running back DeMarco Murray to gain a little weight.
Murray currently weighs 206 pounds and Dallas would like to see him up at 216 pounds.
Murray needs to get up over 220 if you ask me. He’s way to injury prone to weight less than that.

The Cowboys are winning the battle against the St. Louis Rams in Dallas, but Rams special teams player T.J. McDonald definitely wins his war with the Cowboys Kyle Wilber after he delivering this vicious block.
DeMarcus Ware has become the Dallas Cowboys' career sacks leader.
Ware matched Harvey Martin's 30-year-old franchise record with his 114th in the first half Sunday against St. Louis, and got his second of the game to surpass Martin in the third quarter.
Sacks became an official NFL statistic in 1982. Based on that, Ware had surpassed Jim Jeffcoat's 94 1/2 two seasons...
This weekend's game against the Dallas Cowboys presents another big road test for the up and coming St Louis Rams. The Cowboys look like an improved team compared to previous Jason Garrett teams, but are still a fragile unit that is vulnerable at home. No team in the Garrett era has finished better than 5-3 at home, nor 8-8 overall, one of the many factors that makes his seat...

St. Louis Rams at Dallas CowboysSunday September 22nd 1:00 PM (EST)Line: Cowboys by 3In years past I would've told people to not even bother watching this matchup. The Dallas Cowboys have been the epitome of mediocrity the past couple of years, and the St. Louis Rams have been, how do I say it nicely? The Rams have just been a bad football team. However, since Jeff Fisher has...
Before DeMarco Murray ran through St. Louis just like he did when he set a franchise record two years ago, the Dallas defense stopped the Rams twice.
The Cowboys had to get a pair of three-and-outs because Dwayne Harris muffed the game's first punt, but that just gave Dallas a chance to get the first of six sacks on Sam Bradford.

The list now appears as follows:
Harvey Martin, 114.0

Too Tall Jones, 106.0
George Andrie, 97.0
Of course, the numbers for the last four are unofficial stats kept by the team, given that the NFL did not count sacks as an official statistic...
