Rams top Cowboys to advance to NFC championship game

The Chiefs saw off the Colts meanwhile.

THE LOS ANGELES Rams are now only one step away from their first NFL Super Bowl since 2002 after beating the Dallas Cowboys 30-22.

Running backs Todd Gurley and CJ Anderson each rushed for more than 100 yards as the Rams reached the NFC championship game on Saturday.

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James was in attendance at the LA Memorial Coliseum, where the Rams won a playoff game for the first time in 14 years.

The Rams will play the winner of Sunday’s New Orleans Saints-Philadelphia Eagles game next week – hosting the clash if the Eagles win or travelling to New Orleans if the Saints prevail.
