The Dallas Cowboys will be a little shorthanded on the defensive side of the football when the heralded NFC East franchise takes on the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4. It will be broadcast on FOX at 1 p.m. EST.

Lee, who strained his hamstring in the final two minutes of Monday night's win at Arizona, is among the seven Cowboys players who are inactive for Sunday's game. However, the contest was not as competitive as most neutrals would have liked, and the Packers eased to a comfortable 35-14 victory.

Los Angeles averages 35.7 points per game so far this season. Meanwhile, the Rams beat the 49ers to improve to 2-1 straight up but fell to 1-2 against the spread following a two-point win over San Francisco.

When the Cowboys needed to make plays, they simply couldn't. "He's quick to the ball and plays with a lot of power". Building a better offense around Jared Goff was one of the top priorities for this team entering the offseason, and based off what he was able to accomplish in preseason along with the few games played in September, the Rams have to be pleased with Kupp's start overall.

Last preseason, this match up was the coming out party for Dak Prescott as he lit up the Gregg Williams version of the Rams defense.

The Cowboys are thin in the secondary, too, with cornerbacks Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring) and Nolan Carroll (concussion) and safety Kavon Frazier (knee) also questionable. Their absence has been forcing Dallas to dig deep down the depth chart to replace them. In the receiving end, Robert Woods posted 108 yards in six receptions while Sammy Watkins added 106 yards and two touchdowns in six catches.

Another question mark will be Sean Lee's availability.

Defensively, the Cowboys were flat-out bullied.

Todd Gurley had a slow start to the season, averaging just 3.9 yards per carry prior to this week. Instead, rookie Ryan Switzer fumbled a punt and Los Angeles recovered at the Dallas 18. It is imperative that the defensive line can get to Goff and keep him from finding a groove.

If the Cowboys defense isn't at full strength on Sunday, the Rams could be in the flawless position to pull off a huge upset. This means it is crucial for the Cowboys to establish the run game properly. Three games into '17, the club has totaled an NFL-high 107 points.

Linebacker Sean Lee didn't practice again Friday, and the Cowboys list him as questionable to play Sunday against the Rams. But the Cowboys will control the clock and the line of scrimmage.

The Rams then quickly moved the ball to the Dallas 30-yard line but stalled and had to settle for the first of three first-half field goals from Greg Zuerlein, this one from 49 yards, which tied the game 3-3. Defensively, the Rams are yielding 25.0 points and 343.7 total yards (204.7 in passing and 139.0 in rushing) per game.
