After an embarrassing 45-6 home defeat to Baltimore two weeks ago, the Rams have clicked on both offense and defense, beating Arizona and Seattle by a combined score of 62-19 to keep their playoff hopes alive. Dallas, meanwhile, is in the playoff race only because someone has to win the NFC East. The Cowboys are riding a three-game losing streak and sit tied with the Eagles at 6-7. Dallas’ 431 yards per game on offense leads the league, Dak Prescott is the NFL’s leading passer, and Ezekiel Elliott is fifth in the league in rushing yards with 1,071. The Rams are in the top 10 in total yards, but they sit 55 yards behind Dallas, which is a significant number. Both teams are nearly identical on defense, allowing 346 yards per game and 20 points. The difference is that the Rams have held opponents to 17 points or fewer in four out of their last five games, while Dallas has given up 26 or more in four out of their last five. The Cowboys are loaded with talent, especially on offense, but they have continually come up short against teams with winning records, going 0-6 against teams that are currently over .500. The Rams have also been more than solid on the road in this recent run of success, going 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games away from home. LA’s 9-4 ATS record this year is also the best in the NFL.
