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 taken over as head coach, the Rams have made strides in the right direction. Last year they were an overtime field goal away from their first non-losing season since 2006. The Rams have looked good so far this season, beating the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1 and hanging tough in a 31-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Now if only they didn't play in arguably the toughest division in football and they brought back those beautiful throwback uniforms, then they'd be in serious business.The Cowboys fell to 1-1 last week after losing 17-16 to the other team from Missouri, the Kansas City Chiefs. If the 'Boys are going to bounce back in Week 3, their defense will have to bring their A-game against an improved Rams offense featuring the likes of quarterback Sam Bradford, wide receivers Tayvon Austin, and Chris Givens, and tight end Jared Cook. St. Louis' offensive line has been an area of weakness in recent years but Bradford has not been sacked yet this season.This matchup could end up being the most closely matched game of Week 3. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will exploit the weaknesses in the Rams secondary, but Bradford will answer right back with one of the first 'signature games' of his young career. A last long range second field goal off the leg of Greg Zuerlin sneaks the Rams out of Dallas with a win, as my upset special of the week.Final Score: Rams 27 Cowboys 26Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?Follow Chris Hecker on Twitter: @HeckDynasty

Entering their Week 3 match up with the St. Louis Rams, the Dallas Cowboys were engulfed, both in and by criticism.

Last year it was the Seattle Seahawks; this year the Kansas City Chiefs. So what were the primary...

Rams running back Daryl Richardson had his injured foot stepped on early in Sunday's game and never came back into the game.Fantasy Spin:Neirther Isaiah Pead (6-for-20 yards) on Benny Cunningham (4-for-20) did much against the Dallas defense, although Pead did catch seven balls for 43 yards. A healthy Richardson should still be the No. 1 in the Rams offense.
Rams running back Daryl Richardson (foot) did very little in practice Friday and could be limited Sunday, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.Fantasy Spin:Thomas says to "keep an eye" on Richardson's workload. Fantasy owners should only consider him as a flex option Sunday at Dallas.
