LOS ANGELES – So much for Ezekiel Elliott running roughshod over the Rams.
L.A. had two running backs to run over Dallas. Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson both rushed for more than 100 yards, while the Rams defense bottled up the Cowboys’ star running back en route to a 30-22 victory on Saturday night that sends them to the NFC title game.
Gurley rushed for 115 yards, including a splendid, 35-yard TD jaunt. Anderson ran for 123 yards with two TDs.
Elliott? He finished with 47 yards on 20 carries.
The Rams will meet the winner of Sunday’s Saints-Eagles divisional matchup in the NFC Championship Game, marking the first time the franchise has reached that stage since the 2001 season.
Dallas laments another failed opportunity to reach its first NFC title game since the 1995 season, having lost six times in the divisional round since the franchise’s Super Bowl XXX crown.
