The Cowboys are looking to redeem themselves following a disappointing loss to the Kansas City Chiefs this past Sunday.

Both Romo and Dez Bryant were on the same page, as they connected nine times for 141 yards one touchdown which ended up being a beautiful catch and throw at the very back of the end zone.

The difference in the game happened to be two fumbles that were lost by the Cowboys. Although they were ahead by a couple yards in total yards and passing first downs, it still wasn’t enough to squeeze by the Chiefs. Now this week could be an even tougher task for Tony Romo and this offense.

St. Louis has one of the best up and coming young defenses in the league but tend to find themselves struggling at times. They gave up 31 points against the Atlanta Falcons but the offense was able to bring them back within a touchdown near the end of the game.

Early on Bradford threw an interception to Osi Umenyiora who managed to return it 68 yards for a touchdown.

Starting quarterback Sam Bradford  was able to get things rolling late in the third and fourth quarter with multiple touchdown passes. He found rookie Tavon Austin for two and Austin Pettis early on in the fourth which brought them within a touchdown.

This week I expect Tony Romo and Dez Bryant to continue their terror on defenses. Since it’s a home game, Dallas should have an advantage over the young St. Louis Rams organization.

Tony Romo finished the game against Kansas City with 30 of 42 passes complete for 298 yards with one touchdown.

Sam Bradford finished with 32 of 55 passes completed with three touchdowns and one interception.

Both teams have had trouble with their running game in Week 2.

    I’m not sure the phrase “the Rams have one of the best up and coming defenses in the league” can be applied to the Rams this year (last year, maybe). When you’re 29th in pass defense in the NFL, they are clearly not “one of the best”.

      I agree. That zone scheme
      the CBs are playing sucks.
      They need to PRESS. JJ &
      Finnegan have been toasted.
      I’m disappointed in our new
      DC. DBryant will kill the Rams
      if they continue with the same
      coverage. I don’t even want
      to cover the ST penalty issues. The Rams need 6 sacks to beat the Boys.
