Dallas got the job done in a hard-fought game against the Seahawks last week and now have a chance to make their first NFC Championship since 1994. It’s on Dak and Zeke if they want to outscore the high-powered Rams.
LA lost their first playoff game under Sean McVay last season, and now they try to bounce back. After a 13-3 regular season, there is an expectation to at least reach the NFC Championship for them.
They beat Seattle 24-22 last week and ended up sealing their win after one of the worst onside kicks you will ever see. Elliott ran for 137 yards on 26 attempts and was truly a beast who was not going to be stopped. Dak threw for 226 yards and a TD, with a pick, but both guys played very well when they had to. Dak led a huge TD drive late in the game to make it a two-touchdown lead. Now, they are both ready for some more. The Amari Cooper trade proved beneficial even further after we saw him put up seven catches and 108 more yards.
Maliek Collins recorded the team’s only sack, as DeMarcus Lawrence was held impressively in check. He had a terrific regular season, and that Seattle O-Line shut him down. That cannot be the case this week, as they need him to be putting a lot of pressure on Goff. He struggled in the second half of the season, and if they can get to him early, watch out.
The #2 scoring offense in the league gets one of their stars back today. Todd Gurley missed the last few games of the regular season with a knee injury, but his return should give them a boost. In the two games he missed though, free-agent signee CJ Anderson ran for 299 yards and a pair of touchdowns. TGIII had 1800 all-purpose yards with 21 TD’s, but Anderson replaced him as well as he possibly could have. Goff finished the year with 4,688 yards, 32 TD’s, and just 12 picks. This is a dominant offense, the big reason for their sensational record.
Aaron Donald, fresh off signing a big-fat contract, recorded 20.5 sacks this season, not far off the record Michael Strahan set earlier this century. He had half of the team’s 41 QB takedowns and was truly a force. They have four players with multiple picks on the year, and if they can get their hands on the ball, and limit Amari Cooper’s damage, they will win with a blowout.
Rams get it done at home, move within a win of the Super Bowl
Yep. Here they are! The LA Rams are just going to now have to beat the winner of the Eagles/Saints game to get to the big dance.
300 yards and a pair of TD passes Jared Goff, aided from 2.5 sacks from Aaron Donald will get them moving onward!
