Former Badger: Tackle Rob Havenstein

Reason to Cheer: Havenstein has developed into one of the league’s best tackles in four seasons, something tailback Todd Gurley can attest to.  The Rams’ 5.53 adjusted line yards leads second-best New Orleans by a substantial margin in Football Outsiders’ metric.

ESPN Todd Archer’s pick: The stat that sticks out the most, however, is 5.1 yards per carry. Los Angeles allowed that during the regular season, and the Cowboys clearly want to build their game around Elliott. That’s the best way to keep a high-scoring team off the field. And that’s the best way for the Cowboys to advance to the NFC title game. Cowboys 23, Rams 20

ESPN Lindsey Thiry’s pick: The Rams’ run defense is certainly a concern facing the NFL’s leading rusher in Elliott. However, it can’t be overlooked that the Rams’ defense has made late-game stops throughout the season when it has needed to in crunch time. As for their own running game, teammates said Gurley appeared strong and fresh in his first practices back from a knee issue that had kept him sidelined since Week 16. Rams 32, Cowboys 28
