If the Dallas Cowboys can defeat the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night, the Los Angeles Rams will remain alone on top of the NFC West.
After finishing with just four wins all of last season, the Los Angeles Rams are finally beginning to receive the attention for being potential threat in the NFC, although they clearly have a ton of adjustments to make on the defensive side of the football. Still, the Rams have to be thrilled to finally be part of the conversation when it comes to their chances of winning the NFC West, and after receiving some help from the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Sean McVay‘s squad hopes to see the same happen on Monday night with the Dallas Cowboys.

While the Titans pulled off the big win on Sunday to drop the Seattle Seahawks to 1-2, the Cowboys find themselves in a similar situation to do the same against the Arizona Cardinals to top off what was an exciting Week 3. At the moment, both the Cowboys and Cardinals sit at a 1-1 record, which means a win by Arizona would make them tied with Los Angeles for first place in the NFC West.
But if Dallas comes through on the winning end, this means Los Angeles would be sitting on top of the NFC West all alone for the time being since they would be the only members of the division with a winning record. In other words, the Rams and their fans will be cheering hard for the Cowboys to come through on Monday night to give them a little breathing room in the standings over the Cardinals.
Coincidentally, Los Angeles will take on Dallas next weekend for their fourth game of 2017, which could mean trouble when seeing how the defense recently gave up 39 points to San Francisco. Even if the Rams will be cheering for their Week 4 opponent on Monday to defeat the Cardinals, here’s to hoping Wade Phillips can come up with a better game plan to stop the Cowboys on defense, or it’s going to turn into a long game.
