*Down by a touchdown at half, the Cowboys will begin engaging in psychological games with the Rams, loudly discussing among themselves how good Andrew Luck is going to be. “Oh, he’s the next Peyton Manning,” DeMarcus Ware will say in earshot of Rams’ coach Steve Spagnuolo. “Wouldn’t wanna miss a chance to draft that guy!”
*Dallas will come back to win convincingly in the second half. It’ll be hard to tell whether the Rams were convinced that they’d be better off “sucking for Luck”, or if they’re just really, really awful.
*In his first game as a member of the Rams--and with AJ Feeley replacing regular starter Sam Bradford--receiver Brandon Lloyd will have a minimal impact, catching three passes for 39 yards and no touchdowns. After the game, he’ll tell the media, “I’ve made a huge mistake.”
*Late Sunday night, dejected after yet another loss, Rams’ owner Stan Kroenke will call Kurt Warner on the phone. You know, to reminisce. About the good old days.
*Rams defensive backs will struggle to cover Dez Bryant on Sunday--and in the continuation of a developing trend, so will his pants.
