Aloha Stadium in Hawaii was the host of this AFC-NFC Pro Bowl. Thats no longer true as the game is going to be located in the far less desirable location of Orlando for its fourth straight season late January come before the Super Bowl.
But if the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams face off in Week 2 of the preseason from Aloha Stadium enthusiasts in Hawaii will have to see yet another type of football this Saturday. It is the first NFL exhibition game at Hawaiis largest outdoor arena since 1976. Since the Cowboys also have played exhibition games in London, Toronto, Tokyo, Mexico City and Monterrey playing during the preseason in unique locations is nothing new for Dallas beneath owner Jerry Jones. They are not simply Americas Team.
For what it is worth, and I would say , the Rams beat the Cowboys from the Divisional Round of previous seasons play. CJ Anderson rushed for 123 yards and two scores and Todd Gurley 115 yards and a touchdown. Jared Goff threw for 186 yards. Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 47 yards and a touchdown. You wont find any of these men. Anderson has become with the Detroit Lions. Rams coach Sean McVay certainly does not provide a s**t about the preseason as he likes to break his key guys to ensure health for the regular season. Therefore, no Goff or even Gurley (not even traveling to Hawaii to save wear and tear on his knee) or NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald or possibly one starter will perform with. The Rams will be 4-5 straight up and ATS below McVay in exhibition matches after dropping last week 14-3 in Oakland (that you likely watched highlights off onHard Knocks).
Although probably not play much blake Bortles was 3-for-8 for 50 yards and established that match for the Rams and is forecast to begin Saturday. The Rams must give Brandon Allen and John Wolford to the majority of the quarterback snaps to youthful players. These two are battling for the No. 3 job. Last week, backup running Malcolm Brown did not play or is anticipated to at all this preseason. Simply assume of will play If it comes to the Rams.
According to his own 12-22 career straight-up record, dallas coach Jason Garrett doesnt take care of the preseason, either. The Cowboys subsequently dropped and were winless at the 2018 preseason. Quarterback Dak Prescott did perform a series and directed the group completing 4-for-4 for 23 yards. Id guess he plays with a string Saturday. Cooper Rush along with Mike White will watch the majority of the time as they struggle to win against the No. 2 job. Hurry, an agent, has been with the Cowboys. A fifth-round choice in 2018, white, was about the roster last season but was inactive for each game.
Elliott, of course, stays away from the club demanding a contract extension. Theres no chance he is playing in the preseason. Among a few Cowboys who will not play make the trip: Zack DeMarcus Lawrence, Tyrone Crawford, Martin and Byron Jones.
With the Rams holding essentially everyone back, cant help but lean Dallas here.
