Yes, the Dallas Cowboys and the Los Angeles Rams are rivals in the NFL. While they are not in the same division, and only play each other every three seasons, the Rams and the Cowboys are two of the oldest and most successful franchises in the league’s history and have a rivalry that dates back more than 60 years. Part of the fuel of the rivalry is that the Rams and the Cowboys have met nine times in the postseason, with the winner often competing for a Super Bowl that season.
The Dallas Cowboys are commonly referred to as “America’s Team” because their fanbase stretches across the country. As one of the most popular franchises in U.S. sports, they’ve also experienced long runs of sustained success that resulted in Super Bowl championships, Hall-of-Fame careers and many accumulated rivals along the way. The Cowboys’ main rivals are within the NFC East: the Philadelphia Eagles, the Washington Commanders and the New York Giants. The Cowboys also have a longstanding rivalry with the Los Angeles Rams that dates back to the 1960s. Other historic rivalries include the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers. Additionally, they have a geographical rivalry with the Houston Texans as the two NFL teams in the state of Texas.
The Los Angeles Rams are not only one of the oldest franchises in the NFL, but are also known for having been located in several different cities, including St. Louis and Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Rams’ main rivals are the Arizona Cardinals, the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers. The Rams also have a historic rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys due to their fierce games in the playoffs in a win-or-go-home elimination scenario. Finally, the Rams also have a geographic rivalry with fellow Los Angeles franchise the Chargers, with whom they share both the same city and the same home field.
The rivalry between the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams dates back to the 1960s, when both teams were located in the NFC West division. The two teams have played each other many times over the years, including several playoff matchups. The rivalry has been marked by intense competition and high-stakes games, as both teams have been among the most successful franchises in the NFL. While the rivalry has cooled down somewhat in recent years due to changes in division alignments, it remains an important part of the history of both franchises.

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.
The Cowboys and Rams play in two of the most expensive stadiums in United States history. SoFi Stadium, located in Inglewood, Calif., is the home of the Los Angeles Rams. SoFi Stadium cost between $5-6 billion to develop and construct and has been the home of both the Rams and Chargers since 2020. The stadium also plays host to the annual LA Bowl in College Football. In 2022, SoFi Stadium was the host of Super Bowl LVI, where the hometown Rams beat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20.
The Dallas Cowboys have called AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas home since 2009. AT&T Stadium cost roughly $1.3 billion to develop and construct and has a capacity of 80,000 seats. 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. AT&T Stadium has also hosted events outside of the NFL such as the 2010 NBA All-Star Game, the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship, and the 2009 and 2010 Big XII Championship Games.
