Cowboys vs Rams Expert Picks & Predictions for Week 5 NFL Game
The 2022 NFL season is underway and the Week 5 schedule is full of exciting showdowns. One of the more interesting matchups is an NFC clash between the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams.
With Dak Prescott injured, Cooper Rush continues to lead the Cowboys to victory, scoring a 25-10 win against the Washington Commanders in Week 4. Meanwhile, the Rams hope to see more offense than last week after being unable to get things going in a 24-9 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Can Dallas win their fourth straight game of the year with Rush under center? Or will the defending Super Bowl champs get back on track with a win at home?
