Everybody predicting a heavy dose of Ezekiel Elliot tonight and I agree. I think its an offensive ground and pound strategy by the Cowboys which will burn a lot of clock and limit Rams offensive possessions. I think this lends itself to a lower than expected total. I like Under 48 points.50%

They haven't budged on the numbers for this game and Gurley is starting but is he 100%? This is a game of Dallas D versus Roms O. I think we had this discussion when the Saints played Dallas. Dak wasn't perfect in that game and they won. This is an offense friendly league now but the old saying still goes "Defense wins championships"70%

I understand the stance I've been hearing where "this game will be filled with Cowboy fans because LA is the worst". While the Cowboys have been playing great it still comes down to Sean McVay vs Jason Garrett and I have to side with McVay. I can't get behind Dak and don't think he's an elite QB so I have to side with the favorites. The Rams are smart and should be prepared for Elliot's 30 touches today.

This is the face off of the two best running backs in the league. Gurley has had some knee trouble but looks probable today. If he's full steam ahead the Cowboys defense can't stop him. Rams!

Wade Phillips straight up said this is a "revenge game" for him so Rams defense is going to be clicking on all cylinders and Wade knowing how Jason thinks will make this very interesting. Todd Gurley said everyone he knows hates the Cowboys so he's going to do what he can to take care of business for them. I think Rams get the win but I'm not sure they get the cover. I took Cowboys. Fingers crossed!

If Dallas offense, or Dak Prescott was consistent I may have changed my pick however you can only lean on your defense for so long. Dallas has to be able to keep up with the Rams scoring machine and I don't think they can.

Rams -7 is my pick. People are forgetting how good this Rams team is because the slowed down a little towards the end. Cowboys barely beat Seahawks and I think Dak Prescott will have a tough time throwing against this Rams defense and at some point you can't always rely on the run game. I expect Rams to win by 10 points.

I locked Dallas +7.5. I liked Cowboys at +7 and think +7.5 is just ridiculous. Not sure how you would bet Rams -7.5 the way they have played at the end of regular season. Dallas still has one of the best offensive lines in the NFL and you can bet Zeke is going to get 30-35 carries and get is 125+ yards on the ground.

Star-Telegram: Take aim at the defense, Linehan and coaches as Cowboys don't show up in playoff loss to Rams
Midway through the second quarter, a Dallas Cowboys official asked anyone who had ears, "Think we maybe can play some defense tonight?"
No need to single out the defense. Save for the punter, no one else from the Cowboy showed up.
Or by the time they did, the night was too far gone.
On the day news broke from the NFL Network that Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was likely to be offered a contract extension, both he and his team collectively failed to show up on time for a playoff game.Digital Access For Only $0.

Fansided: Sean McVay faces most pressure in Rams needing to beat Cowboys
Back in the 2017 offseason, the Los Angeles Rams took a huge risk by hiring Sean McVay to make him the youngest head coach in NFL history at the time, which obviously turned out to be the best decision the team ever made.
Originally, McVay seemed like he would need at least a year or two of rebuilding before the Rams could even become part of the playoff conversation, but seeing how this team is coming off back-to-back NFC West titles shows just how great of a job he's done in such a short period of time.
