Avant-match Rams-Cowboys

ARLINGTON, Texas – Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys are set to play five of their next seven games in their home stronghold of AT&T Stadium, a place where they have won their last 10 games.

Matthew Stafford will face the team from the city where he spent part of his youth for the first time since joining the Los Angeles Rams – and since becoming a Super Bowl champion in his first campaign with the Rams, in 2021.

However, more important details will occupy all their thoughts on Sunday.

The Cowboys (4-2) are still trying to forget the severe thaw they suffered at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers on October 8.

The Rams (3-4) have been trying to take advantage of the 49ers’ setbacks since then and gain ground in the National Association West Division standings.

“I have a lot of friends in town who I know still live in the area,” Stafford remarked.

“My family still lives in the area, and they will be at the game, which will be nice. It’s always fun to get back out there, but after the opening kickoff, the goal is to get out there and try to beat the Cowboys. »

Now the 35-year-old Stafford is trying to keep the Rams in the playoff conversation as Cal lost some of the stars who helped lead them to the Super League. Bowl.

“I don’t know,” Stafford said when asked if facing the Cowboys, who he watched win three Super Bowls in four years as a young fan, gave him any different sensations at this stage of his career.

“Every time I go there, I feel like it’s a really unique challenge. »

Although they are coming off two defeats during a three-game stretch in front of their fans, the Rams still have the 49ers in their field of vision. The 49ers have lost two straight games since the 42-10 thaw they inflicted on the Cowboys.

The Cowboys are back on track after taking advantage of their bye week, which followed a difficult 20-17 victory against the Los Angeles Chargers, on the Rams’ home field.

A week earlier, the Cowboys were no match for the 49ers, in a defeat that caused turmoil within an organization trying to end a 28-year drought without even reaching the finals of the National Association.

The Cowboys’ current home streak is their longest since their 11-game winning streak at Texas Stadium during the 1991-92 seasons.

At the time, the Cowboys were about to begin their reign atop the National Association.

However, the loss at the hands of the 49ers left doubts about the abilities of Prescott and company to rise to the elite level.

“What’s important is running our own race,” Prescott said.

“Right now, we’re not looking at anyone else. We know everything about this league. We know how difficult it is. We will run our own race and focus on who we are. »

Additionally, the Cowboys will honor DeMarcus Ware by inducting him into the team’s Ring of Honor at halftime of Sunday’s game.

Ware leads the Cowboys in sacks with 117.
