STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Rams QB Sam Bradford is off to fastest start of four-year career with 651 yards through two games. He had 352 yards last week against Atlanta, second-best total of career. But he has bad memories from first appearance at Cowboys' $1.2 billion stadium: Bradford sprained right (throwing) shoulder in first college game at new facility in 2009, when Oklahoma was upset by BYU 14-13. ... Both teams haven't done much in running game so far this year. While Cowboys got solid 86 yards on 20 carries from DeMarco Murray in opener, they're averaging just 3.2 yards in 39 attempts. Rams averaging 3.2 yards in 42 tries. ... Both kickers are off to fast starts. Rams' Greg Zuerlein is 5 for 5, including 48-yarder with 40 seconds left to beat Arizona on opening weekend. Cowboys' Dan Bailey is 6 for 6 and hit pair from 50-plus yards against Chiefs. 53-yarder was career best. ... Rams tied for league lead in sacks last year with 52 and are off to similar start in 2013. They have six, led by third-year DE Robert Quinn with three sacks in opener and four overall. ... Cowboys QB Tony Romo has completed more than 70 percent of passes in both games, but average per attempt is 6.2 yards, significantly lower than career mark of 7.9. ... Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware snapped three-game streak without sack dating to last year by dropping Chiefs QB Alex Smith twice last week. He needs one sack to tie Harvey Martin's 30-year-old franchise record of 114. ... Murray faced Rams in first career start two years ago and set franchise record with 253 yards rushing. His first carry was 91-yard touchdown, longest first career TD since merger in 1970.
