The Cowboys earned their way into the second round of the playoffs following a remarkable mid-season turnaround. They will take on the Rams in Los Angeles in what should be a difficult challenge for the young Cowboys side.
The Rams’ offense was phenomenal in 2018 as they scored 32.9 points per game, the second-highest tally in the league. Their 6,738 total yards and 23 rushing touchdowns this season also ranked second across the NFL.
Their defense was solid as well, although preseason expectations were not met from the defensive unit. The Rams’ defense allowed 24.0 points per game, the 13th-highest mark in the league this season.
Dallas has made a name for itself this season through the inspired play of its defense as well as star running back Ezekiel Elliott, who led the league in rushing yards. Elliott picked up 1,434 yards on the ground this season and scored six rushing touchdowns in what may have been his best ever season in the league.
The Cowboys’ defense was superb, giving up just 20.3 points per game to their opponents. They ranked fifth in run defense, allowing just 94.6 yards per game on the ground. While they only generated nine interceptions on the season, they ranked seventh in the league with 11 recovered fumbles.
The game will be on FOX and can be streamed on FOX Sports Go. It’s accessible to those with a television provider, but can alternatively be seen via Reddit’s NFL streams.
The Cowboys have turned heads with their excellent second half of the season, but it won’t be enough for them to stop the Rams at home. While the Cowboys defense has been solid this season, the Rams offense is simply too strong. The Rams enter the week as seven-point favorites over America’s Team and it wouldn’t be surprising if they lived up to those standards.
Rams 27, Cowboys 16
