Rams turn to running game

Bonsignore Jared Goff faces his latest moment of truth in showdown with Cowboys

Bonsignore Jared Goff faces his latest moment of truth in showdown with Cowboys

Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott never got his wheels going against the Rams, rushing for a playoff career-low 47 yards during the Cowboys 30-22 loss in the divisional round on Saturday night. Despite producing back-to-back division titles for the first time in almost four decades, both coach and quarterback knew the results that mattered most, were those posted in the playoffs. For these Dallas Cowboys, a season that began with hope turned into despair after a 3-5 start.

The Cowboys issues at linebacker were a result of their front four getting blown off the ball all game by LA's offensive line. However, it wasn't the passing attack from Los Angeles that gave them fits.

James showed up to Saturday's Cowboys-Rams game at the LA Memorial Coliseum, but he wasn't rocking any Dallas gear.

The Rams are one win away from another Super Bowl trip after McVay's high-flying, inventive offense largely kept it on the ground, methodically punishing the Cowboys' run defense. Cowboy fans: do you agree with Owens in his assessment? Motto and logo on side is for @weareladder, a supplement company in which he owns a significant stake. Jason Garrett, the Cowboys coach for the better part of a decade (since 2011) was understandably overpowered by a well-coached Rams team.

He said the scientist's awareness of his surroundings were "very minimal" and rejected the notion he was a "bigot". Watson, Crick and another British scientist, Maurice Wilkins, won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1962.

Peters was overheard shouting some taunting words at the direction of the Cowboys on the way to the locker room.

The Rams now await the victor of a divisional-round matchup Sunday between the NFC's top-seeded New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles, before they make their first appearance in an NFC Championship game since 2001.

Los Angeles will take on either New Orleans or Philadelphia in the NFC Championship Game next Sunday.
