These fran­chises have split eight post­sea­son games, and the Rams are the most fre­quent play­off op­po­nent for Dal­las. The Cow­boys last won a road play­off game in 1993 on their way to a Su­per Bowl ti­tle, but their next play­off vic­tory will be their 36th, ty­ing Pitts­burgh for the most in NFL his­tory.

Rams All-Pro de­fen­sive tackle Aaron Don­ald topped the NFL with 201⁄2 sacks, nearly twice as many as Cow­boys leader De­mar­cus Lawrence’s 101⁄2. Un­der for­mer Dal­las coach Wade Phillips, LA’s de­fense had 41 sacks to the Cow­boys’ 39, yet the Rams had 97 more sack yards.

Worth fo­cus­ing on:

This game could be de­cided on the ground, which means All-Pro Todd Gur­ley for the Rams and second-teamer Ezekiel El­liott for the Cow­boys. El­liott won the rush­ing ti­tle for the second time in three years, but Gur­ley was side­lined late in the sched­ule by a knee in­jury. Gur­ley led the league in touch­downs with 21, 17 rush­ing.
