Adam Jones' suspension weakens an already thin Dallas secondary heading into a suddenly interesting matchup between the revived Rams and the limping Cowboys.

The Rams are finally getting some breaks. Their defense won't have to worry about injured Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Dallas will also be without cornerback Terence Newman, running back Felix Jones, receiver Sam Hurd and punter Mat McBriar.

After surprising the Redskins in Week 6, the Rams have to feel better about their chances for a rare winning streak. The team hasn't won consecutive games since the 10th and 11th weeks last season.
