A.J. Feeley has beaten the Cowboys
By Calvin Watkins
Before you go crazy, we don't think the St. Louis Rams will beat the Cowboys on Sunday afternoon at Cowboys Stadium.
With Sam Bradford not available because of a high-ankle sprain, A.J. Feeley takes over at quarterback the Rams.
And Feeley has a victory over the Cowboys.
In 2002, Feeley led the Philadelphia Eagles to a 27-3 victory at Texas Stadium. He completed 19 of 33 passes for 253 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions that day.
Feeley hasn't started a game since 2007, but Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan had some thoughts.
"Feeley has been around forever," Ryan said after Friday's practice. "He had a great preseason. Either way, I know they've added some great weapons in [Mark] Clayton and [Brandon] Lloyd. Two excellent receivers. This is an excellent-looking team. They just hung about 450 yards up on Green Bay. When [Steven] Jackson is playing, I believe they're averaging over 40 yards a game. Whatever the stats say on the overall deal, we know we're getting a hell of an offense here."
Clayton will not play on Sunday despite coming off the physically unable to perform list this week.
