The playoff victory Saturday was a first for the 32-year-old McVay, who in his second season as head coach has recently been in the spotlight as teams around the National Football League fill head-coaching vacancies in an obvious attempt to replicate the explosive offense, and overnight success, that McVay has produced in L.A.
They ended up surrendering 273 yards to Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson, which allowed L.A.to dominate the time of possession. For these Dallas Cowboys, a season that began with hope turned into despair after a 3-5 start. It remains to be seen whether a near one-month layoff will help or hinder him against a defense that limited the Seattle Seahawks, the NFL's top rushing team, to only 73 yards in last week's NFC wild-card victory. They were especially impressive in limiting the vaunted Cowboys running game to just 50 yards.
When seeing how Anderson combined for 299 yards with two scores, it's awesome to think about how much of a steal this ended up being for the Rams when considering he never saw more than seven carries in a single game earlier in the season during his time with the Carolina Panthers.

For a team that looked nothing like a postseason contender for much of the regular season, the Cowboys improbable run of close wins came to an end against the Rams - determined to not lose their first playoff game in consecutive seasons. Prescott added the Cowboys' final TD on a 1-yard run with 2:11 remaining. "If they're committed to taking one thing away you have to be able to beat them in the other area, and at times we did a good job of that tonight".
"We played against a really good front", Elliott said. In his first playoff win, the third-year quarterback completed 15 of 28 passes for 186 yards and xx touchdowns.
