Rams rush past Cowboys, advance with 30-22 playoff victory

Garrett was the offensive coordinator for two of Owens' three seasons with the Cowboys.

The Cowboys did their fair share on offense to help Los Angeles reach the NFC title game, which included one horrendous play from one of their lineman.

As far as accolades go, Gurley was named the AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 2017, is a two-time First-Team All-Pro and won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.

Dak Prescott stepped up big-time and threw 22 of 33 attempts with 226 yards and two touchdowns. He is also running behind one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. The NFL's leading rusher Ezekiel Elliott was held to just 47 yards on 20 carries. "If they're committed to taking one thing away you have to be able to beat them in the other area, and at times we did a good job of that tonight". "That's when I knew we were going to win the game".

Three years to the day after the National Football League approved the Rams' return to Los Angeles, the franchise earned its first playoff victory since coming home from 21 years in St. Louis. When normally both would be making plays and howling, they were silent for the majority of the game, notching just nine solo tackles combined.

The "Hot Boyz" were anything but as the Rams trampled them for a horrific 273 rushing yards for the game.

The young wide receiver had his best day as a professional, grabbing 6 catches for 119 yards, including a pretty 44-yard reception that set up the team's second touchdown in the 3rd quarter.

Elliott scored on a 1-yard plunge and the Cowboys got a 2-point conversion to trim the Rams' lead to 23-15 in the third quarter, but the Rams made a decisive 12-play, 65-yard drive in the fourth capped by Anderson's bold 1-yard TD plunge on fourth down.

A sellout crowd assembled in the cavernous Coliseum, with a significant portion of those fans cheering on America's Team. The Rams signed him after Gurley suffered a knee injury in December, and they rode the former Broncos running back during the final two weeks of the regular season.
