I was expecting them to beat Dallas, but I wasn't expecting them to be able to just run it down their throat.
Are we back to running game and defense wins in the playoffs all of a sudden? (ok Rams D was not fantastic)
KC did a thing like that too...
They're just taking what the defense gives them. You still have to have a legit pass game that the opposing team respects and game plans for
Of, for sure, and all of the home teams have that, my comment was more about how 'playoff football' is different from 'regular season football'. (according to some people anyway) Of course that was one of the reasons a lot of people thought the Bears had a chance, and why some people were talking up Dallas after they got past Seattle.
I've always felt that having good balance was the most important, as with that you could lean on which ever scheme was working better. My question about the Rams though is that before CJ, they really only used Gurley, but with CJ they seem to have a real two headed rushing monster, something they didn't have in the first NO game (or Eagles game I think).
