The Los Angeles Rams relied nearly exclusively on their running game in their playoff win over the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, and Todd Gurley wasn't even their leading rusher.

Elliott was held to 47 yards on 20 rushes for the Cowboys.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff appeared to return to form during season-ending victories over the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers.

When the dust settled, the Cowboys were a physically dominated team, dropping the game to Los Angeles, 30-22. Dallas entered with the fifth-best rushing defense in the National Football League, allowing 94.6 yards per game.

Dallas wide receiver Amari Cooper hauled in the game's first touchdown on a 29-yard pass from quarterback Dak Prescott to give the Cowboys a 7-3 lead in the first quarter. Though Dallas picked up a narrow Wild Card round win over the Seattle Seahawks to begin the playoffs, they were unable to progress any further, running into the brick wall that is the Los Angeles Rams backfield of Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson. He was supposed to run all over the Rams, but that didn't happen.

When the Rams beat the Cowboys Week 4 in Dallas last season, it was absolutely a watershed event. Even veteran backup CJ Anderson was able to run at will, and now we have a better understanding of why that was the case.

With that being said, we look ahead to the coming offseason with five potential offensive coordinator hires to consider.
