Days to Sunday: Hamstring Injury Limiting Lee; Return of Wade Phillips

The two lead the Rams in receiving yards with 194 and 169 respectively. Running back Todd Gurley began the drive with a 16-yard run, then rushed for another seven.

The Los Angeles Rams look to pull off the upset as they take to the road to face off against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Quarterback Carson Palmer has been erratic at times this season, but offensive line struggled and he was under constant duress against the Cowboys. Elliot has had a tough start to the season, averaging just 3.5 yards per carry so far this season, and he has had to endure an uncertain future with a six game suspension for a domestic violence incident.

"I didn't sense a guy that was wanting to put any blame on anybody other than take the accountability himself and just look at it as I'm challenged in the right way to respond and return in Year 2", McVay said.

The Cowboys reached midfield in the final minute, but Elliott's catch inside the Rams 40 on fourth-and-10 was about a yard short of the first down, clinching LA's win. In that game, Kupp caught both passes thrown his way while finishing with 17 yards, but also the 49ers' defense deserves some credit for making it hard on the wideout to get open. This ranked 3rd overall, and more importantly allowed their offense to cover up for many of their defense's flaws.

It was a dramatic turnaround for the Rams' defense, which was very bad early on.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (21) and quarterback Dak Prescott (4) walk off the field after an unsuccessful two-point conversion attempt on a pass to wide receiver Terrance Williams in the second half of an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, in Arlington, Texas. Jared Goff shredded the back-seven of the Cowboys, mostly because of poor play at linebacker for Dallas.

As for Sunday, though - and for any game in the near future for which they're forced to wear their new helmets with their blue jerseys - the Rams will continue to get these kinds of reactions. With that win, it could set the tone for the rest of the Rams' season that may surprise many critics and fans alike.

Prescott has completed 62.6 percent of his passes with 67 completions for 689 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. Three games into '17, the club has totaled an NFL-high 107 points.

The Cowboys started their ensuing possession at their own 25-yard line, down five points with no timeouts.

However, for the Bears the season is quickly slipping away from them, and their third loss of the season sees them drop to 1-3, and it now seems a long way back for them to even get to a level record.

Once again, though, the Rams' defense couldn't make a stop. Gurley had 36 yards and a touchdown. Dallas mustered only those six points in the second half.
