  • Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams: 5 Bold predictions for Divisional Round

The Rams had won only one postseason game since their last trip to the Super Bowl in February 2002, but 32-year-old coach Sean McVay has added his first playoff victory to his spectacular two-season franchise turnaround. "Todd started it and C.J. finished it off".

The Cowboys scored on a Prescott 1-yard touchdown run to make it a one-score game, but Rams quarterback Jared Goff scrambled for 11 yards on a third-and-7 to seal the win. Los Angeles racked up a franchise playoff-record 273 yards on the ground - also the most ever allowed in the postseason by the Cowboys, who were playing in their NFL-record 63rd postseason game. And backup running back Anderson joined in the fun, too, posting 78 yards and a rushing score on 12 carries in a performance that was essentially equal to Gurley's in the first half.

This season, Gurley has been an absolute stud, roasting defenses for almost 90 rushing yards per game and about five yards per pop.

The case is also being played out in local media, with another string of allegations leaking out in the Japanese press on Friday. Ghosn's lawyer, Motonari Otsuru, expects his client to be held until trial, which he said could begin in about six months.


"We just didn't do a good enough job of controlling the line of scrimmage, winning our gaps and tackling", Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said. "They controlled the pace and tempo of the game really because of that".

Gurley, who was playing in his first game since December 16 against Philadelphia because of knee soreness, added a 35-yard TD run with 3:27 remaining in the opening half to give the Rams a 20-7 lead.

Los Angeles is a seven-point favorite in this game on Saturday night, but that doesn't mean the Rams are set in stone to win this game. He was unbelievable in the last two weeks of the regular season starting for Gurley, blasting the rival Arizona Cardinals for 167 yards in Week 16 before pouring 154 yards from scrimmage on the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17.
