Watkins is looking to be a good fit with 13 receptions for 194 yards and two touchdowns after being acquired from the Buffalo Bills and he and Woods (10 for 169) have combined for nine receptions of 20 or more yards. Goff took over as the Rams' starter with seven games remaining and didn't win any of them.
The Rams sealed the win after forcing three straight incompletions from Prescott to force a turnover on downs with 27 seconds left in the game.
The disappointment so far with this Rams squad is its defense, specifically the run defense. The Chargers' struggles past year were largely due to injuries and close losses - they lost 8 games by 8 points or fewer. For a young QB coming off a disastrous year, that's impressive. It will be easy for the Dallas team to score, taking advantage of this fact. This was an area of concern for the Cowboys going into the season, but has seemingly been solved by Lawrence's performance thus far. The key to it all, finally having an offensive line that can keep a clean pocket.
Dallas managed to drive the ball down the field, but on a key fourth down pass, Elliott was dropped one yard short of a first down. This ranked 3rd overall, and more importantly allowed their offense to cover up for many of their defense's flaws.
He's has done absolutely everything his team has needed of him, and more - and in the process, he's set himself up to have a season for the record books.
Gurley is the first Rams running back with 200-plus yards from scrimmage in a single game since Jackson posted 215 yards from scrimmage against the Atlanta Falcons in 2008. There was the what-if about the new rookie head coach, the what-if about Todd Gurley returning to form or not, and then the what-if as to how Jared Goff would handle the weapons around him. One could probably credit this to a coaching change, and Gurley looks like one of the premier RBs in the National Football League, rushing for 241 yards and four TDs on the ground through three weeks. In his entire first two seasons in the NFL, Gurley had zero catching touchdowns. Defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence leads the National Football League with 6.5 sacks - his career high is eight in 2015 - and was named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for September - a nice start to his campaign, considering he will become an unrestricted free agent after the season.
The Dallas defense was also unable to contain gadget player Tavon Austin out on the edge. This is certainly a matchup to watch.
The holes that Ezekiel Elliott had in the first half suddenly stop being there.
PREDICTION: The Rams are an improved team but their wins are against the Colts and 49ers and they are stepping up in class with the visit to the Cowboys. Dallas got another shot after a defensive holding call. Frankly, it's terrifying. The Ram offense, while not exactly efficient, chewed up the field and kept scoring points. LA (+6) will most likely be the popular bet on this spread, but I actually like Dallas here. LA only manage to move 4 yards on the drive and took only 1:19 off the clock, but Zuerlein hit his sixth field goal from 43 yards out with 9:41 left in the game, and the Rams led 32-24. It was one of those plays that you were like "are you going to score in practice, or will you actually score it in a game?' Those don't happen very often".
This will be Goff's first experience playing at AT&T Cowboys Stadium, known as Jerry's World, on Sunday.
