    This was mentioned on the NFL network earlier today.
    Would be a viable tactic if we don't feel that LVE can run with Gurley.

    That was a much different Jaylon last year. Hell, Jaylon probably couldn't run with Eli Manning in 2017. He was unsure of himself and much to slow to read and react to plays.

    All of that has changed.

    I'm sure McVay realizes this as well. We won't get the same looks from the Rams that we got in 2017.

    I'm pretty sure that's what is going to happen. I expect one of the DBs to pick up Gurley on passing downs.

    As good as LVE and Jaylon Smith are, I don't want them trying to cover Gurley 20 yards down field. That's a mismatch in the Rams favor.

    Absolutely this. McVay exploited Jaylon's gimp. Let him try that this go around, and the Cowboys will roll the Rams.

    I expect this Defense to play it's fiercest game of the season tomorrow. I think they get after it and do not stop until the final gun sounds.

    It seems like Coop's best games have come at AT&T, but we have managed to win even when he hasn't had great games. I agree that tonight would be a perfect time for Coop to have one of those monster games. It seems like once he and Dak connect on a big play, another is sure to follow. We could use that tonight.

    You are 100% correct about Kupp. The guy is a beast.

    That was Damien Wilson that couldnt cover Gurley. Im sure the Cowboys will have Heath shadowing Gurley just like in the Giants game he was on Barkley.

    Thats interesting! If both RBs get shut down which QB would you want. Dak has a good short game and the team is built to throw short. Goff and the Rams are built for big plays and Goff wont have the time to throw deep if the Cowboys defense gets after him. But both QBs rely on the RB catching a lot of screen passes. Daks legs would be the deciding factor.

    Been screaming it from the rafters until someone will listen. Goff has committed 11 turnovers in the last 6 games. During that time his completion percentage is less than 60%. The Rams are second in the league in offensive drives that end in turnovers.

    They’re not a good team since they lost Kupp.

    So basically it boils down to we gained a Cooper and they lost a Cooper.

    Honestly people are forgetting about Kupp. All these analysts keep saying gurley wasn’t healthy but kupp being hurt as really put their offense out of rhythm. Well see today. Playoffs different story

    for the cowboys to win tonight they have to get turnovers on defense and the offense cannot make mistakes like untimely penalities or turnovers these things have to happen or they will lose

    Ya'll keep focusing on Gurley but the Rams have two 1200yd WRs, and the Cowboys secondary has started to get exposed.

    Kamara is a lot smaller than Gurley. Lewis will get run over trying to tackle him.

    I’d have Jaylon as a “spy” on Gurley. Key will be not biting on play action.

    The front 4 have to do a great job today

    Kirwin actually said last week that he is sick and tired of defending Dak to stupid cowboys fans that want anyone else but him
