NFL office intervenes after coin toss error in Dallas

The NFL officiating department stepped in Sunday to reverse the team set for the second-half kickoff in Sunday's Rams-Cowboys game, an unusual move that corrected a mistake during the pregame coin toss.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee caught 12 passes for 111 yards in a 44-21 loss to the Cowboys. Higbee has 334 receiving yards over the last three games, which accounts for more yards than he had in each of the last two season (295 yards in 2017 and 292 yards in 2018).

Todd Gurley, on the Cowboys stopping the run, "I'm not really sure what they did, but they did a damn good job."

Sean McVay, on how the Rams will remain motivated for remainder of season, if playoffs are out of reach: "It's all about character. Whether we have a chance to get in or not, or what kind of things have to occur, I think you've got a lot of prideful guys in that locker room."

The Rams entered Sunday with a 25.2% chance of making the playoffs, but after a loss to the Cowboys, those chances have dropped to 5.1% per ESPN's Football Power Index. "We went out there and played horrible," DT Aaron Donald said. "When you play horrible, you get beat, you get beat pretty bad and we got embarrassed today."

The Rams came out flat against the Cowboys, and find themselves in a massive hole trailing 28-7 at halftime. Todd Gurley was unable to get moving, and Jared Goff threw an interception with under two minutes to play in the first half that the Cowboys converted into a touchdown. The defense has appeared discombobulated, as two defensive backs collided on a 59-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin, and Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns.

Rams inactives vs. Cowboys: DB Donte Deayon, CB David Long, S Jake Gervase, OL Jamil Demby, RT Rob Havenstein, TE Gerald Everett, TE Kendall Blanton

Rams (-1) vs. Cowboys (0:48)

Mike Clay ESPN Writer 

The average NFL defense has 5+ defensive backs on the field (essentially nickel and dime) 72% of the time. The Seahawks sit at a league-low 30% in the category this season. That may explain why Rams slot WR Cooper Kupp played a career-low 28% of the snaps against Seattle in Week 14. Expect more playing time - and likely better output - for Kupp today against a Dallas defense allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to the slot over the past eight weeks (second most over the past month).
