Cowboys eliminated from playoffs as Rams advance to 2019 NFC Championship Game

Dallas Sucks.

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys’ season is over.

Dallas lost their 2019 Divisional Round game to the Rams in Los Angeles on Saturday evening, 30 to 22.

The Cowboys exceeded expectations in 2018 but ultimately came up short once again. The limitations of Jason Garret and Dak Prescott continue to hold Dallas back. Despite this, they’ll likely receive contract extensions this offseason. Excellent news.

If the Eagles upset the Saints in New Orleans on Sunday, they’ll have advanced further in the 2019 NFL Playoffs than the Cowboys did. At that point I think we very much need to put quotes around the Cowboys being “2018 NFC East champions.”

The Rams’ win means Los Angeles is headed to the 2019 NFC Championship Game. If the Eagles win in the Superdome, the reigning Super Bowl champions will be headed back to LA for a rematch with the Rams. If the Saints win, they’ll be hosting the Rams next Sunday.
