I was going to reference my post from the 2008 predictions thread where I said something along the lines of "the Rams will be better than currently advertised".
Then I realised the full quote was "The Texans and Rams will be better than currently advertised" - and thought better of it.
Dallas might be in a bit of bother. They could easily drop 2-3 games to divisional rivals, and Pittsburgh and Tampa are both tough games. 9-7 probably won't get it done as far as making the playoffs goes.
Alternatively they could wake the phuck up and run the board the rest of the way. It's been that sort of wacky season all over so far.
Very obliging of them to sort the commentators' nightmare of having two Roy Williams' on one team out so quickly though. How they'll cope without his regular supply of blown coverages and dumb-ass penalties is anybody's guess.
Even if you were to have a 4 team playoff at the end of the season, these lesser games would still have an impact, as strength of schedule would have to be an element in deciding who is #4 and who would be left out at #5.
