Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips had a good day against one of his many former teams last year in the divisional round of the postseason. His defense is having a terrible, no good, very bad day Sunday against the Cowboys.

The Cowboys have 285 yards of offense, scoring on their final four of five first-half possessions, to take a 28-7 lead into the locker room at halftime.

The Cowboys’ next-to-last drive of the half covered 14 plays and 97 yards and ate up 7:57. Ezekiel Elliott scored on a 1-yard run with 1:57 remaining in the half.

The Cowboys added another Elliott touchdown on a 3-yard run with 16 seconds remaining in the half after Sean Lee intercepted Jared Goff. It was Lee’s first interception since 2017 and his 23-yard interception return set the offense up at the 9-yard line.

Dak Prescott has completed 9 of 15 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns. Tavon Austin has a 59-yard touchdown catch, getting as open as you will ever see an NFL receiver get, and Jason Witten scored on a 19-yard catch.

Elliott has run for 78 yards on 17 carries.

The Rams have put together one drive, going 75 yards in nine plays, with Todd Gurley scoring on a 2-yard run with 12:58 remaining in the half. Otherwise, it’s been all Cowboys.

Gurley, who had 16 carries for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Rams’ divisional round victory over the Cowboys in January, has six carries for only 1 yard.

Goff has completed 11 of 19 passes for 117 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

  1. Garretts message with the video highlight reel seemed to work. I also questioned if it was ALL on Garrett or the players THEMSELVES getting their coin and bellies full and not caring about the game to much, Let s face it, 90 percent of this team is locked up for a long time…. when you dont have a fat contract to play for in todays nfl then you no longer have THAT need will or drive. Cowboys do have some good coaches so the PLAYERS need to be held accountability at some dam point. Look at BArry Switzer, he sucked yet the TALANT of the team alone was enough to win a championship.
