Dallas has a good chance to get its season back on track against the woeful Rams.
It is a testament to the Rams' special brand of awful that not one expert can imagine the Cowboys messing this up, like they always seem to do.
SB Nation's Andrew Sharp sided with Tony Romo and Dallas in his weekly NFL picks column, but then he wrote this:
It's not just that the Cowboys lose. I'm a Wizards fan, too. I'm used to losing. But it's how they lose that drives me completely insane every single week. They're clearly a pretty good team, too. But Jason Garrett just keeps finding new ways to overthink everything and stab fans in the heart.
Remember that shovel pass in the red zone last week? Because that's when I knew that they were going to lose the game. This is what the 2011 Cowboys season has come to.
All eight experts on the ESPN.com mega-panel are going with the Cowboys as their prediction. CBSSports.com is also unanimously choosing Dallas.
Sports Illustrated's Peter King added, "I'm not sure why. But I think the Cowboys will enter the last two weeks of the season -- Philly at home, then at the Giants -- with their playoff fate in their hands. They've looked too good too often this year to think they'll be 7-9." The Cowboys need if they are going to pick themselves up from their 2-3 start and make a playoff push.
