Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams History

The Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams played for the first time on November 6, 1960 when the Rams throttled the Cowboys 38-13 in the Cotton Bowl. As it was the Cowboys’ inaugural season, they finished that year 0-11. The Rams would go on to win three out of the first four matchups against the Cowboys. But Dallas began to turn the tide in the 1970s, winning six out of 10 matchups against the Rams, including wins in the 1973, 1975 and 1979 playoffs.

Bad blood began to brew between the two franchises in 1985, when the Rams blanked the Cowboys in the 1985 playoffs in what was Cowboys’ coach (and Hall-of-Famer) Tom Landry’s final playoff game. It marked the eighth playoff matchup between the two franchises in 13 years. In 1986, when the Rams and Cowboys met in the regular season, Landry was momentarily taken out of commission. He returned later in the game, but his absence left a void the Cowboys could not fill as the Rams went on to win 29-10. A year later the Cowboys got revenge in a 29-21 victory over the Rams.

Since 2010, the Cowboys have won four out of the last six matchups, including a 44-21 shootout in AT&T stadium in 2019. Overall, Dallas leads the all-time series (19-18) head-to-head while the Rams lead the postseason (5-4) head-to-head.

AT&T Stadium is an architectural marvel, known for its retractable roof, a pair of 300-foot arches that span the length of the dome, and a center-hung video display board that was, at the time of completion, the largest HDTV screen in the world.
