Rams turn to running game

Adjust Comment Print

The playoff victory Saturday was a first for the 32-year-old McVay, who in his second season as head coach has recently been in the spotlight as teams around the National Football League fill head-coaching vacancies in an obvious attempt to replicate the explosive offense, and overnight success, that McVay has produced in L.A. Running back Todd Gurley is expected to play after sitting out the last two games because of a left knee injury.

As insurance, Los Angeles made the decision to sign veteran C.J.

First, they both have third-year quarterbacks with Dak Prescott of the Cowboys and Jared Goff of the Rams both being selected in the 2015 NFL Draft, though Goff is a former No. 1 overall pick and Prescott was selected on Day 3 of that same draft.

Dallas allowed 273 rushing yards, a franchise. They were especially impressive in limiting the vaunted Cowboys running game to just 50 yards.

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. Elliott tallied 137 yards on 26 carries for the fourth-seeded Cowboys.

Elliott was held to 47 yards on 20 rushes for the Cowboys.

LeBron plays it safe tonight with a "There Is No Magic Pill" hat for tonight's game in Los Angeles for Rams-Cowboys.

The Rams, meanwhile, advance to the NFC Championship Game.
