A bunch of random stats from Sunday vs. Dallas, many of which are not great. But some are!

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams fell to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 15 by a score of 44-21. It clearly wasn’t pretty. Here is a look at some of the numbers from Sunday:

1,031

The number of receiving yards Cooper Kupp has after Sunday. It marks the first time in his career he’s eclipsed 1,000 yards in a season.

111

The number of receiving yards Tyler Higbee had against the Cowboys. He becomes the first tight end in franchise history to record three consecutive games of 100+ receiving yards.

84.1

Jared Goff’s passer rating on Sunday, good for 22nd (out of 30 teams) with the Monday night game still to be played. Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott finished his day with a 123.8 passer rating, which currently ranks 4th in Week 15.

71

The number of yards after contact both Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard recorded. According to ESPN Stats & Info, this is the first time in 10 seasons that a team has had a pair of running backs eclipse 70 after contact yards in the same game.

68

The number of plays run by both teams. The Rams possessed the ball for 23:54, while the Cowboys had it for 36:06

56

The number of rushing touchdowns Todd Gurley has in his career. He is now tied for second most rushing touchdowns in franchise history with Steven Jackson and Eric Dickerson, trailing only Marshall Faulk (58)

45.5

Jared Goff’s Total QBR in Week 15. This ranks 19th out of 30 QB’s thus far. Dak Prescott earned a QBR of 84.1 (5th).

33(%)

The Rams’ offense went 4-12 on 3rd downs yesterday. With the exception of the Bears game (where they finished the game with a 30% conversion rate), the Rams have lost every game this season where they’ve converted less than 36%.

22

Net rushing yards for the Rams on Sunday.

15

The number of interceptions Jared Goff has thrown on the season. It’s now the highest number of his young career, having thrown only 12 INT’s all of last year. He’s now tied for fourth for most interceptions this season (and 5th in total turnovers, with 20)

11

The number of snaps Johnny Mundt saw on Sunday. Coincidentally, it’s also the personnel grouping they opted to use despite their success running it from 2-TE formations in recent weeks.

10.92

The number of yards per rush attempt for Cowboys’ running back Tony Pollard, which currently ranks 1st in the league for Week 15 among players with 10 or more attempts.

10

The number of tackles Taylor Rapp recorded on Sunday. He’s currently the only rookie in the NFL to have recorded three games with double-digit tackles.

5.8

The yards per rush attempt figure for the Cowboys on Sunday. Coming into the game, the Rams’ defense was only allowing 3.8 yards per attempt on the year; sixth best in the league. The 5.8 figure represents the second highest number on the year (Baltimore - 5.9).

4.25

That’s the yards per play figure for the Rams on Sunday, which ranks 28th out of 30 teams. It’s the second lowest per play number on the season (against Baltimore they were limited to 3.14)

1.82

Yards per rush attempt for Rams’ RB Todd Gurley on Sunday. It’s his third lowest yards per attempt figure since being drafted in 2015 (71 games) and ranks 27th (of 29) among rushers with 10+ carries this week.

1.57

The Rams team yards per rush attempt number. It’s currently the lowest among the 30 teams that have played. Duh.

0

Sacks. Since Week 7, no NFL team had amassed more sacks than the Los Angeles Rams (30). Dallas got it done.
