They got behind early and couldn't rely as much on star running back Todd Gurley as they would have liked. Facing a 4th and 4 from their own 34, Los Angeles elected to fake the punt, with Hekker completing the pass to Mike Thomas for the conversion. First he said defense, then he said kick, then he said defer. Welcome to the team. Instead, he cut things off and said the Cowboys would kick.
The Cowboys scored first near the end of the first quarter when Prescott and tight end Jason Witten combined on several completions, including Witten's spectacular one-handed catch for a touchdown.
Of course, fans had seen this before. He set his feet and connected with wide-open former Rams receiver Tavon Austin for a 59-yard touchdown and a 14-7 lead.
Elliott carried the ball eight times and Pollard broke free for a 25-yard gain as the Cowboys used 13 plays to drive down the field.

Linebacker Sean Lee, who did not practice all week because of pectoral and thigh injuries, recorded his first interception since December 10, 2017, and his first full sack since December 7, 2015. The Cowboys received the 2nd half kickoff, after all. His 50-yard field goal to open the third quarter was his longest since 2017, when he played with the Minnesota Vikings. The score now 37-7 with 6:40 remaining, there wasn't much left to do but play out the clock.

Cowboys: Can clinch a second straight NFC East title and fourth in six seasons with a win over the Eagles.
The Rams looked nothing like a playoff team on Sunday anyway.
That win gave the Cowboys confidence that they could compete in the NFC.
But if today's team shows up again, playing close to ideal football, the Cowboys just might be ready to make some noise in the postseason. If not, they'll need some help in Week 17.
