The Rams beat the Cowboys. Jeff Fisher's ghost is exorcised
Oct 02, 2017, 00:51
As for the 2017 season, Goff has shown improvement over his first National Football League campaign as the Rams enter the game 2-1 overall with the highest scoring offense at 35.7 points per game and the fifth-best passing offense with an average of 279 yards per game.
KEY STAT: The Cowboys have not had a turnover in nine quarters after not forcing one against the Rams. To put the scoring outburst in better perspective, two playoff teams from past year - Giants (37) and Bengals (33) have yet to reach 40 points in three combined games, while the Rams have hit that number in one game, twice already. The Rams turned that deficit into an 8-point lead.
I think there are a few more backs in the league, but I don't know how many teams will be completely able to utilize their abilities unless offensive line play improves across the league. The Rams are going to calm down when they play defenses that are capable of exploiting their flaws. After this week, the Cowboys aren't scheduled to play another game in the early time slot until their Week 17 finale at Philadelphia, which could get end up getting flexed to primetime.
The Rams ripped off 19 consecutive points and squeezed out the remaining minutes to win a game where they entered as underdogs. Goff has almost doubled his yard per attempt to 10.1, completed over 70 percent of his passes, and posted a passer rating of 118.2, all top-3 marks in the NFL. Are you the team that supposedly boasts the game's best offensive line and running back? Instead, rookie Ryan Switzer fumbled a punt and Los Angeles recovered at the Dallas 18. Gurley has taken advantage of this fact, and has rushed for 241 yards and four touchdowns. He had a 44-yarder on the final play of the first half, and the long was from 49.
If Goff can pull out a victory on Sunday against the Cowboys, he'll be a star quicker than many anticipated.
Conventional wisdom will tell you settling for field goals all afternoon is not a way to win a game.
It was a dramatic turnaround for the Rams' defense, which was terrible early on.
Dallas had the chance to tie it with a two-point conversion after a defensive lapse let the Cowboys score.
And while the offense as a whole has recorded a series of outstanding outings in the first three weeks of the season, Gurley recognized the challenge L.A. will face against the Cowboys. All they had against the Cardinals was one three-and-out possession totaling 3 yards as the defense struggled as well.
For the Cowboys offense, quarterback Dak Prescott was one of the guys who got passed over for Jared Goff. Elliott is only averaging 3.5 yards per carry thus far, while the offensive line hasn't been as dominant, but look for OC Scott Linehan to make a concerted effort to establish the run early and often. Even though they lost the game, the 49ers have plenty of positives to build on going into the game against the Cardinals. Dallas mustered only those six points in the second half.
