Aloha Stadium in Hawaii was the Yearly host of the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl. Thats no longer true as the game is going to be found in the much less desirable place of Orlando for the fourth straight season come the week before the Super Bowl.
However, if Los Angeles Rams and the Dallas Cowboys face off in Week two of the preseason in Aloha Stadium, enthusiasts in Hawaii will have to see yet another type of meaningless football this Saturday. Its the first NFL exhibition game in Hawaiis largest outdoor arena since 1976. Playing throughout the preseason in unique locations is not anything new for Dallas beneath owner Jerry Jones as the Cowboys have played exhibition games. Guess they are not simply Americas Team.
For Id say , and what it is worth, the Rams beat the Cowboys in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, 30-22 of last season. 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 see any of those men. Anderson is now with the Detroit Lions. Rams coach Sean McVay clearly does not give a **t all about the preseason because he likes to rest his key guys to ensure health for the normal season. So, no Goff or Gurley (not even traveling to Hawaii to save wear and tear on his knee) or two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald or maybe one starter will play. The Rams will be 4-5 straight up and ATS below McVay in exhibition games after dropping last week 14-3 at Oakland (which you likely watched highlights off onHard Knocks).
Although not play a lot, blake Bortles established that match and has been and is forecast to start again. The Rams should give most of the quarterback snaps to players Brandon Allen and John Wolford. These two are fighting for the No. 3 job. Backup running Malcolm Brown didnt play or is expected to this preseason. Simply assume no one you have heard of would perform If it comes to the Rams.
Dallas coach Jason Garrett doesnt care about the preseason according to his own 12-22 career straight-up record. The Cowboys were winless in the 2018 preseason and subsequently dropped 17-9 in San Francisco last Saturday. Quarterback Dak Prescott and a series did play with and directed the team into a field goal, finishing 4-for-4 for 23 yards. Id guess Saturday, he plays with a string. Cooper Rush along with Mike White will see the majority of the time since they battle to win the No. 2 job. An agent, rush, was with the Cowboys since 2017. A fifth-round pick in 2018, white, was on the roster last season but was inactive for every game.
Elliott, obviously, remains away from the club demanding a contract extension. There. One of other Cowboys who make or wont play the trip: Zack Byron Jones, Tyrone Crawford, DeMarcus Lawrence and Martin.
Together with the holding essentially everybody back, can not help but slim Dallas here.
