The last time the Rams played in Dallas the outcome was a mostly forgettable one, unless you were Dallas. This week's game should be a little different, in no small part due to the fact that it's a preseason game. Romo, Murray, Bradford, Laurinaitis, Long and the other starters should be working through the first couple chapters of their playbooks through most of the first half of the game.
The second half, when most people turn off a preseason game, matters a little more this week. Roster cuts are due Monday, teams must go from 90 players to 75. That means 15 of the players on the field tonight will not be there next week, maybe. Some of the chronically injured players could get das boot or shipped off to IR as part of the roster trimming.
Alright, let's get to the game. Execute, execute, execute. That's the only key to the game that matters, that and staying injury free.
