This could definitely be seen as a hint of extra motivation for the Rams, knowing that the city's most famous team and their players are cheering them on.

Dallas finished the season 11-7. Dallas entered with the fifth-best rushing defense in the National Football League, allowing 94.6 yards per game. "They were able to run consistently throughout the game".

The fallout from this loss won't be fully realized until the sting is gone, but sweeping changes aren't expected in Dallas after a resurrection from 3-5 saw the Cowboys within a few plays of the NFC Championship Game. "They controlled the pace and tempo of the game really because of that".

The Rams had won only one postseason game since their last trip to the Super Bowl in February 2002, but 32-year-old coach Sean McVay has added his first playoff victory to his spectacular two-season franchise turnaround.

Towards the end of the regular season, the Los Angeles Rams found themselves in a somewhat hard situation with Todd Gurley at running back, as last year's MVP runner up was dealing with knee inflammation.

After a third-quarter field goal from the Rams' Greg Zuerlein, the Cowboys cut the deficit to 23-15 on a 1-yard TD run from Ezekiel Elliott and a 2-point conversion catch from Amari Cooper.

LeBron James is taking some heat for what he was spotted doing after Saturday's Cowboys-Rams game.

"We played against a really good front", Elliott said.
