The Rams now await the victor of a divisional-round matchup Sunday between the NFC's top-seeded New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles, before they make their first appearance in an NFC Championship game since 2001.
The Rams had won only one postseason game since their last trip to the Super Bowl in February 2002, but 32-year-old coach Sean McVay has added his first playoff victory to his spectacular two-season franchise turnaround. And backup running back Anderson joined in the fun, too, posting 78 yards and a rushing score on 12 carries in a performance that was essentially equal to Gurley's in the first half. "They controlled the pace and tempo of the game really because of that".
Thanks to their performances on the ground, the Rams jumped out to a dominating 20-7 lead despite a slow 11-21 first-half from young quarterback Jared Goff.
After a third-quarter field goal from the Rams' Greg Zuerlein, the Cowboys cut the deficit to 23-15 on a 1-yard TD run from Ezekiel Elliott and a 2-point conversion catch from Amari Cooper. The Rams last played during Week 17, where they beat the 49ers 48-32.
Elliott was held to 47 yards on 20 rushes for the Cowboys.
Ahead 23-15 in the fourth quarter, Rams head coach Sean McVay chose to go for it on a fourth-and-goal from the Dallas 1-yard line, and the gamble paid off. Anderson's second touchdown run made it 30-15 with 7:16 remaining.
"Even when we were in three-receiver sets they were in base, so they were committed to stopping our running game", Garrett said.
