Rams Offense Stifled in 22-10 Loss to Cowboys: Live Game Log – Sports Illustrated

  • October 10, 2022

The Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys meet for the 37th all-time meeting at SoFi Stadium on Sunday, as two teams headed into opposite directions look to emerge victorious in an interesting NFC bout. 
The all-time series is tied 18-18 after the Rams picked up a 20-17 win over Dallas in the 2020 season opener. The two teams have also met nine times in the postseason. 
The Cowboys (3-1) head into SoFi on the shoulders of backup quarterback Cooper Rush, who has rallied Dallas to three straight wins after Dak Prescott injured his thumb in the season opener. 
But the Cowboys have also been led by a dominate defense that hasn't allowed more than 20 points in a game this season. Star linebacker Micah Parsons and cornerback Trevon Diggs have led the pack while safety Donovan Wilson continues to make big plays.
Rams coach Sean McVay showered praises on Dallas ahead of Sunday's game, 
“A team that's riding a good streak," he said. "I think they've played really good, complementary football. Obviously when you look at them defensively, they've got excellent players coming off the edge. I think they're really aggressive on all three levels, they've got great speed."
