Rams' Greatest Show 2.0 outshines America's Team 35-30

The Los Angeles Rams will head to Dallas seeking their third win of the season.

Too bad it only lasted a half. In a game where the Dallas dominated the first half, 30 points weren't enough as the Cowboys fell to the Rams 35-30 Sunday. In addition to Goff playing well, Todd Gurley is back to his 2015 form and the offensive line is much improved. That's when things changed. The computer is taking the Cowboys to cover the spread, and the under on the point total. He will face a stiff test this week, going up against the unheralded leader of the Dallas defense, LB Sean Lee. Goff took over as the Rams' starter with seven games remaining and didn't win any of them.

"It's frustrating. We come out, we're on fire and we're feeling good".

-PASSING OFFENSE: A - Once again, second-year quarterback Jared Goff was effective and consistent while completing 21 of 36 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns for a 98.7 passer rating. He had six carries of 10 yards or more through the first four games in 2016.

After lighting up the scoreboard for a second straight week and defeating the Dallas Cowboys, the Rams have given notice to the National Football League that they are a force to reckon with. His 53 yard touchdown catch and run was a flawless example of the Cowboys having no clue what hit them. This time it was Alfred Morris doing the heavy lifting.

Los Angeles will host the Seahawks in Week 5 and then the Cardinals in Week 7 with a date in Jacksonville in-between. "What's important is the team wins", Elliott said. Dallas gained a lot of yards and scored a lot of points, but LA was better, and that's why our grades are high marks all around following the Rams' big win.

But Prescott wasn't ready to give in. Bryant had five catches for a season-high 98 yards. He got an opportunity Sunday night because of injuries to running backs Thomas Rawls, C.J. Prosise and Chris Carson, and took full advantage.

But he was also sacked four times as pass protection broke down under the pressure of Khalil Mack and Mario Edwards . If he is out all five games and the Raiders win three of the five, they will be 5-4 and still in the wild card mix.

But Elliott had just nine touches and 42 total yards after halftime the day before a federal appeals court heard arguments over the NFL's emergency request to lift an injunction that blocked the league's six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations in Ohio. The offense was rolling.

Prescott earlier had a 10-yard scoring run that ended with a flip at the goal line as he tried to dive past three defenders.

Dallas forced a punt on the next LA possession, but uncharacteristically, Ryan Switzer muffed the return and the Rams recovered at the Dallas 18. Anyone who watched the Rams probably shared the sentiment. Fans in Los Angeles aren't desperate for football and will only buy tickets if the teams are good. You really look at what that defense had done coming into this game against really good teams in Carolina and Seattle.

McVay's Rams attacked the middle of the field tirelessly against the Cowboys' defense, where not even Jaylon Smith was up for the challenge of running with the likes of Cooper Kupp and Todd Gurley. They lost their finale when Prescott played only briefly and Elliott sat with a first-round playoff bye clinched.

Dallas had the chance to tie it with a two-point conversion after a defensive lapse let the Cowboys score. That game saw the Rams jump out to an early lead, but saw an incredible comeback by the 49ers. Dallas also had an impressive Week 1 performance against the Giants. The running back has caught a receiving TD in three straight games. Ten plays later, it was over.

The Rams literally mugged San Francisco on the game's very first play from scrimmage.

There is little time for the Cowboys to dwell on the penalty and loss.
