As I mentioned earlier in the week in this article, everything suggests that the Cowboys should pummel the Rams this Sunday in Dallas, especially now that Sam Bradford has been confirmed as “out” for the game. For a Rams offense that hasn’t been good to begin with, the Cowboys should be able to get a head early and dominate the league’s worst run defense for the remainder of the game.
While DeMarco Murray is considered to be the de facto RB to benefit from both the Rams inability to stop the run, and Felix Jones not playing due to injury, Tashard Choice could also stand in line to benefit. Choice has been limited this year with only 26 carries through five games, but has shown in the past he can produce in these types of situations.
In 2008 in three starts due to injury he averaged 78 yards rushing, 37 receiving on four receptions per game while scoring two TDs. Sandwiched between his first two starts, Choice had 143 total yards and two TDs on 13 touches in a week 14 game vs. the Giants.
Though he hasn’t started a game since that stretch, the Cowboys have kept Choice around because though he isn’t an every down back, he can contribute in certain spots. Sunday versus St. Louis could be one of those spots.
