Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Dak Prescott Has AC Joint Injury

They must defeat the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium next Sunday, and the Arizona Cardinals in the season finale at the Coliseum - and the Vikings would have to lose at home against the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears. The Cowboys demolished the Rams by a 44-21 score in their week 15 action, and the Eagles came through with a 37-27 road win over the Redskins last week.

The Los Angeles Rams' playoff chances weren't exactly great entering Week 15, but they were just one game behind the Vikings for the sixth seed in the NFC. The Cowboys snapped their 3 game losing streak in the win over the Rams. But when you have two backs go for over 100 yards each, it's a nice little measure of revenge for the way Los Angeles lit up the Cowboys in the divisional playoff round past year. But looking at the win over the Rams, these were the studs and duds from Dallas (heavy on the studs, as you'd expect).

The Rams went all the way to the start of the second half thinking they were going to get the ball before finding out Dallas would receive. Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee intercepted Goff on the Rams' next drive, giving Dallas the ball at the Los Angeles 9-yard line.

When Dallas' offense is able to run the ball like this, they are a hard team to beat.

Ezekiel Elliott scored on a 1-yard touchdown run later in the second quarter for Dallas.

But they bounced back to defeat the Bears, and then rebounded again after getting run over by the Ravens. He's been the driving force on offense throughout this season. Jared Goff is the Rams' quarterback and he's been awful this year, regressing to the point where the Rams' future is in jeopardy. He also rushed for 12 yards on seven carries. Rush, 26, has not thrown a pass in a game since 2017. Two passes traveled farther than 20 yards and three passes were thrown between 10-20 yards. The veteran tight end brought in 61 receiving yards against the Redskins, and he leads the team with 888 receiving yards on the year. Goff completed 33-of-51 passes for 284 yards two touchdowns and one interception.

While betting lines are back up across the sports betting industry and all signs point toward Prescott starting, the injury is worth monitoring for not only NFL betting purposes, but also for those in season-long fantasy football championships and for those playing the NFL Week 16 DFS slate. Thankfully, the Rams were just as futile on offense in the early stages of the first quarter, so they couldn't take advantage of the unforced errors.
