The Los Angeles Rams just shocked the NFL by beating the Dallas Cowboys on the road. This wasn’t how the game was supposed to go. A rookie quarterback wasn’t supposed to be able to beat the Cowboys. At least that’s what the analysts at CBS Sports and ESPN were saying about the Week 4 contest. Apparently, Jared Goff and Todd Gurley didn’t get that memo in time. Maybe it was sent to St. Louis by mistake.

Scoring in each of the four quarters, the LA Rams beat the Cowboys 35-30 on Sunday (Oct. 1). It wasn’t a one-sided game by any means, but there were certainly some critical plays that led to the Rams getting an important victory.

Primary among them was a nine-yard pass from Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott to Ezekiel Elliott late in the fourth quarter. The problem was that the Cowboys needed 10 yards to extend the game and instead, it brought an end to a possible game-winning drive for the home team.

Jared Goff a hero for Rams fans?

Goff completed 21-of-36 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns. Maybe the most important stat, though, was that he didn’t throw any interceptions. Goff took care of the ball and helped his team stay in the game. Running back Todd Gurley added another 121 yards on the ground and the Rams finished with 412 total yards.

The defense still has some problems, as the Dallas Cowboys posted 440 total yards in the game.

If not for the two turnovers by the Cowboys, this game result could have looked a little different. That’s how it goes sometimes and now Rams fans can continually play the highlight of Jared Goff connecting on a 53-yard touchdown pass to Todd Gurley to give the LA Rams the lead for good.

Are the LA Rams for real?

The Los Angeles Rams have moved to 3-1 on the season and remain the first place team in the NFC West.

No other team even has two wins (yet) in the division, showing that the Rams are starting to make a statement to their rivals. In four games, the Rams have already scored 142 points, showing off a 37 point differential in the scoring as well.

A big test for the Rams comes next week when the team heads out on the road to play the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks are already banged up and have gone just 1-2 in their first three games. Jared Goff will still have to be careful with the Seahawks’ defense, as they have the weapons to completely shut down a team. With the momentum that the Los Angeles Rams have built up over the last few weeks, it should make for a really interesting game on October 8.
