Minutes later, he drilled a 57-yarder to win the game in overtime. Today, Zuerlein was listed with a left foot injury on the initial injury report for Super Bowl LIII against the New England Patriots: It should be noted, the injury report comes with the following disclaimer: The Rams had a players’ day off Wednesday.

Patriots vs Rams: New England lists nobody on hypothetical Wednesday practice report

After 18 games, New England’s health is looking good. The New England Patriots did not just exit their game against the Kansas City Chiefs as the champions of the AFC, they also exited it pretty healthy. No injuries were announced during the overtime contest and a look at the first practice report of the week further confirms that New England is at full strength heading towards the Super Bowl: the team did not list a single player on its first injury report leading up to the title game. Of course, neither the Patriots nor the Los Angeles Rams did practice today so the two lists are more...

Will the Rams run it down the Saints’ throat?

Sean McVay dominated his chess match against Jason Garrett. Sean Payton will be a lot tougher. The Dallas Cowboys had the league’s 5th best defense against the run this year. The Los Angeles Rams have a great passing offense, and they went into last week’s playoff game against Dallas with their best runner just back from injury, and a sub who was cut by two different teams this year, who had only 24 snaps total in Weeks 1 through 15. So of course the Rams ran, and ran, and ran some more — 48 times, against only 28 pass attempts (and 15 completions). That sub, C.J. Anderson, ran 23...

2018 NFL Playoff Divisional Round Rams vs. Cowboys open thread

Greetings, Raider Nation! After a disappointing game in Kansas City today, we now head to Los Angeles for a matchup between the NFC West winner Los Angeles Rams and the NFC East winner Dallas Cowboys. The Rams were unstoppable at one point on offense this year, racking up huge yardage and point totals against anyone and everyone.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Rams present a wide range of challenges for the Dallas Cowboys' defense, but the path to the NFC Championship game depends upon slowing down Jared Goff and his array of targets. The NFL's second-best offense thrives on its intricate passing attack, and depending on All-Pro running back Todd Gurley's sharpness in his return from injury -- and what the Cowboys' staunch run defense permits him -- that could be L.A.'s sole source for success. That could play most favorably for Dallas in Saturday night's NFC Divisional playoff at the Los Angeles Memorial...
