The first Sunday Night Football game of the year brings fans a matchup of two of the NFL's most explosive offenses, as the Dallas Cowboys take on the Los Angeles Rams.

Here are three bold predictions about how the first-ever game in SoFi Stadium will play out.

3. Amari Cooper Held Below 30 Yards, Dallas Still Wins

Amari Cooper has one of the toughest matchups possible this week, as he gears up to face Jalen Ramsey. There's no need for Dallas to force feed its No. 1 receiver in this one, as Dak Prescott has plenty of other weapons he can target instead. Notably, Cooper was held under 30 receiving yards four times last season.

2. CeeDee Lamb Has 100+ Yards in His Debut

Most reports seem to suggest that CeeDee Lamb has been as advertised during training camp. The first-round pick is reportedly tearing it up. If Cooper's season gets off to a slow start thanks to the matchup with Ramsey, as we expect it to, Lamb could be called on to pick up the slack in Week 1.

1. Dallas Sacks Jared Goff 4+Times

The Cowboys' defensive front is really underrated. Though the loss of Gerald McCoy will hurt, this is still a group that features pass rushers DeMarcus Lawrence, Everson Griffen and a potential wild card in Aldon Smith. Los Angeles' offensive line was a real problem last year, and the team didn't do a whole lot to address it in the offseason. Look for Jared Goff to be under duress on Sunday night.
