    Not sure how they know exactly that it lived before the T-rex, but if they didn't then it could've just been a baby T-rex :p

    radio carbon dating, also you can tell an animal's approximate age by features in the bones (like in humans, if the sutures in the skull are fused or not determines if it was adult/child)

    radio carbon dating can't be used that far back its a measure of thousands of years, not millions. Besides, there isnt any carbon in a fossil anyhow, it's all calcium.
