Rams turn to running game

Rams turn to running game

"That defense didn't play that way today", Elliott said.

For most of the team's drive to the postseason, the Cowboy linebacker corps paced the unit, making dozens of stops per game and provided the entire defense with its personality and passion.

Dallas wide receiver Amari Cooper hauled in the game's first touchdown on a 29-yard pass from quarterback Dak Prescott to give the Cowboys a 7-3 lead in the first quarter.

The Rams totaled 273 yards on the ground, a franchise record for a playoff game. When normally both would be making plays and howling, they were silent for the majority of the game, notching just nine solo tackles combined. "They controlled the pace and tempo of the game really because of that". Running back Todd Gurley is expected to play after sitting out the last two games because of a left knee injury.

With that being said, we look ahead to the coming offseason with five potential offensive coordinator hires to consider. Prescott added the Cowboys' final TD on a 1-yard run with 2:11 remaining. The NFL's leading rusher Ezekiel Elliott was held to just 47 yards on 20 carries. Even veteran backup CJ Anderson was able to run at will, and now we have a better understanding of why that was the case.

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay accomplished an important milestone in his young career as an National Football League coach.
