After finishing last season with an 8-8 record, The Dallas Cowboys aim to reach their first Super Bowl in 25 years with new head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy replaced Jason Garrett who was fired after 9 full seasons as Dallas’ head coach. The Cowboys only made the playoffs in 3 of those years, failing to advance past the Divisional Round in each postseason. McCarthy may be new to Dallas but the veteran head coach led the Green Bay Packers from 2006-2018 making 9 playoff appearances in his 13 seasons with the team, including a Super Bowl title that came in the 2010 season.
The Los Angeles Rams open up the 2020 season with a new logo, new uniforms, and a new home—SoFi Stadium. However, on the field the Rams will have to find a way to replace RB Todd Gurley who was released in March and signed with the Falcons. Gurley racked up 58 rush TD in his five seasons with the team. QB Jared Goff will now rely on RB’s Malcolm Brown, Darrell Henderson Jr., and rookie Cam Akers who posted 1,144 yards and 14 rush TD last season at FSU.
The Cowboys and Rams met last year, with Dallas notching the victory. For this game, the Cowboys (under new coach Mike McCarthy) are favored again. Quarterback Dak Prescott is coming off his best season yet and has more wideout options now that CeeDee Lamb has joined Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper (though the latter is questionable to play). And with star running back Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys have a ground game to complement Prescott’s passing. Dallas’ defense is formidable, too, especially after adding former Pro Bowler Everson Griffin as a pass rusher.
As for the Rams, they parted ways with Todd Gurley and drafted running back Cam Akers to fill his shoes. Quarterback Jared Goff has a capable lineup of passing options, including Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Tyler Higbee. On defense, Los Angeles lost a few key linebackers but fields two strong cornerbacks in Jalen Ramsey and Troy Hill.
