Meme makers are at their happiest when the Dallas Cowboys lose, especially in the playoffs. The Los Angeles Rams and their running game making them very happy.
The Cowboys extended their Super Bowl & NFC title game droughts with a 22-30 loss in L.A., dropping an early lead and mostly getting run over by the Rams running game, the one experts said the Cowboys have a very good shot of stopping.
So the Rams didn’t lean on Jared Goff, instead reducing the play action and simply going action. The Rams ran for 273 yards, with both C.J. Anderson and Todd Gurley going over 115 yards. Anderson also rushed for two touchdowns, leaving the best defensive unit the Cowboys have had under Jason Garrett in shambles.
Meanwhile the Cowboys running game, led by Ezekiel Elliott, didn’t get anywhere (47 yards on 20 carries) while Dak Prescott picked up yards, but not enough points on the boards. Yes, the Cowboys had a legit gripe with some officiating calls, but that wasn’t what lost them the game. Back to the drawing board, while the Rams move on to the conference championship game.
