Most signs would have pointed to the St, Louis Rams having a lost season by now, but despite numerous injuries (the biggest ones to their top two quarterbacks) they’re sitting at a decent 1-1 through two games. Heading into Week 3, they have their sights set on shocking the world some more and getting by the Dallas Cowboys for a 2-1 start.
While Dallas has shockingly been better than advertised on defense through two weeks, it’s hard to label them as anything more than average on that side of the ball. Needless to say, with a less than imposing defense coming into town, St. Louis has to feel fairly good about their chances of earning a week three win.
That doesn’t mean it will be a cakewalk, but the possibility of a win has Rams vs Dallas Cowboys tickets returning fantastic value this week. Not only are St Louis Rams tickets just have an average price of $124.65 the secondary market (only 4% higher than their season average of $119), but fans can also get in for just $20. That’s right, for the price of an oil change, Rams fans can get in to see St. Louis try to topple Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray.
That’s the key, too. Dallas obviously brings the most heat on offense, but through two weeks, their normally gaudy offensive show has offered up a less than impressive 43 total points. Considering the Rams have an elite pass rush and a suffocating run defense, Rams fans have to like the odds that St. Louis can buckle down on defense at home.
That’s exactly what happened last week in a tight win over the Buccaneers, and the Rams will aim to do it again. Romo continues to struggle with velocity and timing thanks to a bad back, which could have Murray be the Rams’ top task to conquer. If they can keep him under wraps, they might give Austin Davis (who might get a second straight start under center) enough wiggle room to squeak out another upset win.
