Dallas Cowboys Defense Outplayed by Rams in Playoff Loss

Los Angeles (13-3) enters Saturday's matchup as the No. 2 seed and is coming off a bye. "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". Jason Garrett, the Cowboys coach for the better part of a decade (since 2011) was understandably overpowered by a well-coached Rams team.

The Rams will face the victor of Sunday's Philadelphia Eagles-New Orleans Saints matchup in next weekend's NFC title game.

"That defense didn't play that way today", Elliott said.

Ezekiel Elliott rushed for a TD and Amari Cooper caught an early TD pass for the Cowboys (11-7), who still haven't won a playoff game on the road in 26 years.

The Los Angeles Lakers' star claims to be a big Dallas Cowboys fan. Making matters even worse, the Rams came out and attacked the Cowboys defense by flashing the misdirection plays that worked all night. The Cowboys would use Prescott's legs much too late on the ensuing drive, getting into the end zone but failing to get the ball back. 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.

They won't be happy with the result, but the Cowboys should be proud of their final outcome on this year.
