Aloha Stadium in Hawaii was the Yearly host of the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl. That is no longer the case since the game is going to be found at the less desirable location of Orlando for the fourth straight season come January prior to the Super Bowl.
But fans in Hawaii will have to find yet another kind of meaningless football when the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams confront in Week 2 of the preseason out of Aloha Stadium. It is the very first NFL exhibition game at Hawaiis largest outdoor arena since 1976. Playing throughout the preseason unique locations is nothing new for Dallas under owner Jerry Jones as the Cowboys also have played exhibition matches in London, Toronto, Tokyo, Mexico City and Monterrey. They are Americas Team.
For Id say nothing, and what it is worth, the Rams beat the visiting Cowboys in the Divisional Round of past seasons play. CJ Anderson rushed for 123 yards and 2 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 guys on Saturday. Anderson is now with the Detroit Lions. Rams coach Sean McVay certainly does not provide a s**t on the preseason as he likes to break his key men to guarantee health for the normal season. So, no Goff or Gurley (not traveling to Hawaii to save wear and tear in his knee) or two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald or possibly a single starter will perform . The Rams have been 4-5 straight up and ATS under McVay in exhibition games after losing last week 14-3 in Oakland (which you probably saw highlights off Hard Knocks).
Although not play much, blake Bortles started that game for the Rams and was and is forecast to start again. The Rams should give the majority of the quarterback slips again to youthful players John Wolford and Brandon Allen. These two are fighting for the No. 3 job. Weekly, backup running back Malcolm Brown also didnt play or is anticipated to all this preseason. Simply assume of will perform when it comes to the Rams.
Dallas coach Jason Garrett clearly does not care about the preseason according to his 12-22 career straight-up record. The Cowboys subsequently lost 17-9 at San Francisco last Saturday and were winless. Quarterback Dak Prescott led the team into a field goal, completing 4-for-4 for 23 yards and did play a series. Id guess Saturday, he only plays with a series. Cooper Rush and Mike White will see the majority of the time as they battle to win at against the No. 2 job. Rush, an undrafted free agent, has been with the Cowboys since 2017. A fifth-round choice in 2018, white, was about the 53-man roster last season but has been inactive for each game.
Elliott, of course, stays away from the club requiring a contract expansion. There. Among a few other Cowboys who wont play make the trip and the trip: Zack Martin, Tyrone Crawford, DeMarcus Lawrence and Byron Jones.
With the Rams holding basically everyone back, cant help but slender Dallas here.
