Los Angeles Rams: 4 who need to step up against the Cowboys
By Steve Rivera
If the season ends abruptly for the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday night, 2018 for Jared Goff will have more upside than not. But if he stumbles against the Cowboys the way he did in December against playoff caliber competition in the Bears and the Eagles, it’ll be noted that he was awfully good, but is still 0-2 in the postseason.
Hey, in the NFL you’re measured by wins and losses, and if your in the playoffs, your record ultimately defines you. That said, Goff will be the better quarterback on the field when he faces off against Dak Prescott and that solid Dallas defense.
If history is any indicator, fans will remember a passing attack in the Rams loss to the Atlanta Falcons, there lone playoff appearance last year, where Goff looked to be forcing his game and where Sean McVay perhaps shortchanged his running back Todd Gurley.
If that happens again, don’t be overly surprised as the Cowboys rank 16 in pass defense, perhaps giving Goff a chance to air it out. Best of all, if McVay can get his passing attack timing at a pretty good clip, expect both Gurley and especially Anderson to have big games and force the Dallas offense to have to keep up.
Bottom line, Goff needs a big Saturday throwing and avoiding turnovers for LA to have any chance.
