Gur­ley, Rams run through Cow­boys

The Modesto Bee (Sunday) - - Sports - BY GREG BEACHAM

C.J. An­der­son rushed for 123 yards and two touch­downs, and Todd Gur­ley rushed for 115 more and an­other TD in the Los An­ge­les Rams’ first play­off vic­tory in 14 years, 30-22 over the Dal­las Cow­boys in the di­vi­sional round on Satur­day night.

Gur­ley and An­der­son pun­ished the Cow­boys’ nor­mally sturdy run de­fense and sent the sec­ond­seeded Rams (14-3) to the NFC cham­pi­onship game for the first time in 17 years.

Ezekiel El­liott rushed for a TD and Amari Cooper caught an early TD pass for the Cow­boys (11-7), who still haven’t won a play­off game on the road in 26 years. After win­ning the NFC East and beat­ing Seat­tle last week, Dal­las lost in the di­vi­sional play­off round for the sixth con­sec­u­tive time.

THE LOS AN­GE­LES RAMS ARE HEADED TO THE NFC CHAM­PI­ONSHIP GAME FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 17 YEARS.
