Todd Gurley believes Cowboys are in a ‘better position’ than Rams
Todd Gurley knows the score. The Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams enter their Sunday tilt in different positions. The Cowboys, after losing to the Chicago Bears, sit at 6-7. The Rams, who are on a two-game win-streak, are 8-5. Which team is currently slated to go to the playoffs?
The losing one.
The Cowboys, despite their 6-7 record, sit-on-top of the NFC East, meaning they get one of the NFC’s top-four seeds and a home playoff game. The Rams are outside of the wild card race, as the 10-3 Seattle Seahawks and 9-4 Minnesota Vikings have the edge over the 8-5 Rams.
The Cowboys are in the driver’s seat. They need to win two out of the next three to get in. The Rams need to win out and see some results go their way. Los Angeles running back Todd Gurley will say it straight: Dallas is in a better position.
“Everyone’s better than their record,” Gurley said on Thursday, via Cameron DaSilva of The Rams Wire. “They’re just not in a good place right now, but (expletive), they’re in a better place than us because they’re going to make the playoffs, so I don’t know why everyone’s concerned about them. As long as they take care of what they need to take care of, they’ll still be playing in January.”
As Gurley alludes to, the Cowboys have gotten their fair share of flak for their record. However, they are still a playoff team. The Rams, as it currently stands, are not. Dallas is in a better position, despite a losing record.
