Bonsignore Jared Goff faces his latest moment of truth in showdown with Cowboys

The two teams have had strong offensive line play at times this season as both the Rams and Cowboys have blocked for 1,200-plus yard rushers.
As for who the Rams will face, well they will either host the Philadelphia Eagles or travel down south to take on the New Orleans Saints, depending on what the results are of Sunday's game between the two NFC teams. And backup running back Anderson joined in the fun, too, posting 78 yards and a rushing score on 12 carries in a performance that was essentially equal to Gurley's in the first half.
Dallas allowed 273 rushing yards, a franchise. "They controlled the pace and tempo of the game really because of that".
Los Angeles is a seven-point favorite in this game on Saturday night, but that doesn't mean the Rams are set in stone to win this game.
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 Cowboys started a potential game-tying drive late in the third quarter, but Elliott was stopped on fourth down from the Rams' 35-yard line on the first play of the fourth quarter.
Ahead 23-15 in the fourth quarter, Rams head coach Sean McVay chose to go for it on a fourth-and-goal from the Dallas 1-yard line, and the gamble paid off. Anderson's second touchdown run made it 30-15 with 7:16 remaining. "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".
