3 Non-Vikings Games to Watch in Week 15

Los Angeles Rams (8-5) at Dallas (6-7)

3:25 p.m. (CT) Sunday | AT&T Bank Stadium | FOX

Outlook: This matchup features a Wild Card hopeful team with a winning record against a sub-.500 team that currently leads its division. The Rams are coming off an impressive 28-12 win over Seattle, and now get set for three straight NFC games to close out the regular season, including a road game in San Francisco in Week 16. Dallas and Philadelphia both sit at 6-7, but the Cowboys are in first place in the NFC East due to a head-to-head win in Week 7. The teams will meet again in Philadelphia in Week 16.

The Rams have racked up 1,004 yards of total offense in back-to-back wins over Arizona and Seattle. That is their highest two-game output of the season.

Running back Todd Gurley II has a team-high 721 rushing yards and nine scores on 177 carries. He has yet to record a 100-yard game in 2019.

Los Angeles’ defense has allowed 17 points or less in six of its past seven games. The Rams are 5-2 in those games.

Dallas’ offense ranks first in yards per game (430.8), passing yards per game (306.8), fewest sacks allowed per pass (3.62 percent) and third-down conversions (56.5 percent).

Including the Cowboys loss to the Vikings on Nov. 10, Dallas has lost four of five games, yet has remained in first place in the NFC East each week.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott has 1,071 rushing yards in 2019, marking his third career 1,000-yard season in four tries.
