The Los Angeles Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys 30-22 to advance to the NFC Championship Game. The individual match-up between Cowboys star receiver Amari Cooper and Rams cornerback Marcus Peters continues after the final whistle.
The two players got into it repeatedly during the game, including right before Cooper broke free for a long touchdown early in the game.
Cooper finished with six catches for 65 yards and that one touchdown.
Rookie Michael Gallup wound up having a breakout game for Dallas across the way from Cooper, catching six passes for 119 yards and a score.
Dallas was held to just 50 rushing yards though, while the Rams mauled Dallas for 273 yards and three scores on the ground.
The extra-curriculars between Cooper and Peters continued throughout, including after the Rams sealed the game up.

After much derision, the Amari Cooper trade looks very good for the Dallas Cowboys, who turned their season around after acquiring the former Oakland Raider.
It wasn’t enough to get past the powerhouse Rams though, who advance to face the winner of tomorrow’s Eagles-Saints game.
The one kicks off at 4:40 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on FOX.
