Cowboys-Rams Betting Odds: Opening Spread, Trends for NFC Divisional Game

Eagles' win sends Cowboys to Los Angeles

Following those two losses to the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles found their stride again against cellar dwellers in the NFC West, specifically the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers.

The Rams won despite quarterback Dieter Brock completing just six of 20 passes for 50 yards because of Dickerson and the Los Angeles defense, which intercepted Cowboys quarterback Danny White three times and held Tony Dorsett to just 58 yards on 17 carries.

Sean Koerner, our Director of Predictive Analytics, made the following power ratings for this game in the immediate aftermath of Wild Card Weekend.

The Eagles topped the Bears in this afternoon's contest, thanks to a last-second missed field goal by Chicago's kicker.

The New Orleans Saints defeated the Philadelphia Eagles not that long ago - just 56 days separate their Week 11 meeting from the upcoming divisional round playoff game - but both teams are in vastly different spaces. Dallas has already beaten New Orleans this season, but that win came at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

It appears that the Cowboys' greatest strength matches up well with the Rams' biggest weakness, right?

Dallas and Los Angeles are set to kick off at 8:15 p.m. E.T. on Saturday night.
