Eagles' win sends Cowboys to Los Angeles

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he's rooting for Eagles over the Bears

Dak Prescott #4 of the Dallas Cowboys walks onto the field for pregame warm ups before taking on the Seattle Seahawks at AT&T Stadium on December 24, 2017 in Arlington, Texas.

Looking ahead to this big game, here are three matchups that will be critical to the outcome of the game as each franchise looks to move onto the Conference Championships.

Prior to that kick, tickets for the Rams were low as it seemed the Chicago Bears were on their way to play in Los Angeles. They ended up finally losing a game again in Week 15 but reeled off two more wins to finish the season with a record of 10-6. In the half-dozen road games Dallas has played in that same time frame against opponents averaging at least 24 points per game, the Cowboys have allowed an average of only 15.7 points per game. In games where their opponent gained at least 110 yards rushing, the Rams were 4-3. They failed to cover any of their five home games during that 11-game stretch, and they went 0-5-1 against the spread over the final six games they played against teams that reached the playoffs.

If Elliott gets going and the Rams' paltry run defense can't slow him down, the Cowboys are going to control the clock, likely sustain long drives and keep the ball away from Jared Goff and Todd Gurley.
