Texas Rangers

Only 10 games remain in the Texas Ranger’s 2013 regular season. These last 10 games decide if they make the playoffs or go home early. The division is lost – that much is sure but a Wild Card spot remains. It’s not ideal but at least it’s a way in. If you feel like just giving up now please take a moment to check out this article explaining why you SHOULDN’T give up.

This weekend the Rangers travel to Kansas City to face the Royals. This Royals team is no joke. They are not the same pathetic squad from seasons before. They will fight. And if the Rangers don’t play their absolute best they will lose. The Rangers must win this series to keep pace for the Wild Card.

FC Dallas

This weekend FC Dallas travels to face the New York Red Bulls. After a brutal 1-win summer the club hopes to close out the season on the upward trend. FC Dallas is playing .500 ball in the month of September and have a good chance at posting a winning month with only 2 games remaining this month.

Dallas Cowboys

On Sunday the perpetually disappointing and often confusing Dallas Cowboys face the St. Louis Rams in Dallas. As we still try to ascertain what the expectations are for this club, the equally confusing Rams offer to act as a measuring stick.

The Rams are similar to the Cowboys in many respects as they also have a building defense with fairly solid potential.

They have an offense with excellent firepower but questionable pass protection and overall execution. They have a running game in shambles.

Sadly the result of this game probably won’t prove anything to anyone on either team when all is said and done. That doesn’t make it unwatchable though.

This is the exact reason this game should be so darn entertaining! We really have no idea what we’re going to get from either club. Will the Cowboy defense become the turnover producing juggernaut we saw in week one but was absent in week two? Will the offense continue to abandon the run game? Will the pass game dink and dunk or will they go deep? Who are the Rams?

This should be very entertaining to say the least.
