The Los Angeles Rams got a very impressive win when they battled back to beat the Dallas Cowboys 35-30. The Cowboys were actually winning at halftime in this match up but Todd Gurley would go on to will the Rams to victory. Gurley finished the day with 121 rushing yards, 94 receiving yards, and 1 touchdown reception. It’s offensive production like that which leads to Pro Bowl caliber seasons and Gurley has been absolutely sensational in 2017. Jared Goff has also made significant strides in his own development. Goff threw for 2 touchdowns, 255 passing yards, and 0 interceptions against a tough Cowboys defensive front. The fact that Goff is putting up multiple touchdown passes and not turning over the football says a lot about the young quarterback’s growth. Jared Goff is a big reason the Rams are 3-1 on the year so far. Rookie Rams Receiver Cooper Kupp caught a touchdown pass to continue his impressive first season as pro. Kupp has been one of Goff’s favorite receivers and he is a great role player for this team. On the opposite sidelines Dak Prescott had a pretty good day throwing for 3 touchdowns, 252 passing yards, and 1 interception. Ezekiel Elliott ran the ball pretty well too rushing for 85 yards and 1 touchdown. Elliott also caught a touchdown pass as well so he got it done threw the air and on the ground. James Hanna and Brice Butler each hauled in a touchdown reception apiece for the Cowboys passing game. However Dallas couldn’t muster up any points on their final drive of the game and that was it for the Cowboys. On the defensive side of the ball Mark Barron was pretty good for the Rams recording 7 tackles and 1 interception. Alec Ogletree was pretty impressive for Los Angeles too he had 7 total tackles. Jaylon Smith is completely healed for the Cowboys and led the team with 10 tackles. Demarcus Lawrence was his usual self registering 4 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 forced fumble. Los Angeles is officially the real deal and should be the frontrunner to win the NFC West.
