The Los Angeles Rams are going to the Super Bowl. However, that’s not the biggest news surrounding the team this after their win over the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game Sunday. A missed call late in regulation is.
Yes, there was an obvious third-down pass interference. Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman hit Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis and the Saints didn’t get the chance for a first down that could have run out the clock.
Instead, New Orleans was left with having to kick a field goal, giving the Rams 15 seconds to tie the game. While the field goal gave the Saints the lead, a penalty MIGHT have given them the win. But would it have? We will never know. What would the narrative be today had that potential field goal NOT gone in?
The Kansas City Chiefs were originally scheduled to play the Los Angeles Rams at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City for one of the biggest games of the year. However, the game was moved west to Los Angeles after officials declared the field was unfavorable. And with growing concerns from the players – who allegedly refused to play – it was a done deal.
Scheduled as an away game, it made sense to move the game to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. However, with an enormous Chiefs fan-based already residing in the City of Angles, I have no doubt they will turn the Coliseum into Arrowhead Stadium as they did earlier in the season when the Chiefs visited the Los Angeles Chargers in week one.
The Los Angeles Rams are on a roll! For the first time in more than a decade, the Rams are off to a 3-0 start. They have been favored in every game thus far and covered the spread each time. Does this mean they will be able to beat the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night?
Rams quarterback Jared Goff seems to be getting more comfortable and improving every game. Against the Los Angeles Chargers, he went for three touchdowns, an interception and completed 29 of his 36 passes. He’s got an arm that allows him to throw over the middle of the field and doesn’t seem afraid to take chances with long balls.
The Los Angeles Rams came out of Week 1 with a win over the Oakland Raiders. Even though going into this matchup the Rams were the superior team, questions still remained as to how the team would gel after most of the starters were sidelined throughout the preseason.
This game was a bit of “A Tale of Two Halves.” The first half had the Rams looking a bit rusty, but adjustments were made at halftime. The Raiders were simply outplayed and outscored the entire time as the Rams garnered 23 unanswered points.
There’s no way around it. The Los Angeles Rams have gone all in to win this year. Making huge additions to their team, additions that will probably only be around for a year or two, the former St. Louis team has decided its time, right now, to win.
Understandably, this has made Seattle Seahawks fans nervous. Add to that the fact the famed Legion of Boom (as fans knew it) has disbanded, there’s not enough Xanax in the world to help the 12th man make it through until preseason.
However, should there be panic in Seattle? Have fans focused too much on who has left, instead of seeing who is still here?
This was a familiar moment. The one at the end of the game where your palms are sweaty, your knees are weak, the dogs are bewildered, and your kids are apologizing to their friends because their mother is a raving maniac. Your beloved Seahawks are playing dominant and yet ineffective at the same time.
One side making great plays while the other side is incapable of moving the ball or stopping the opponent. Your team going right down to the last 8 seconds before securing a win and having a knack for making football watching the best cardio workout of the week. Oh wait, maybe that wasn’t you, maybe that was me.
Do the Los Angeles Rams stand a chance against the Seattle Seahawks at home? Last year, the answer would have been an absolute no. But something has changed in the Rams culture. For one thing, it starts at the top. In four years with the Rams, three of them in St. Louis, former head coach Jeff Fisher could only muster up 31 wins and a whopping 45 losses.
Out went Fisher, and in came the youngest head coach in NFL history, Sean McVay. The manner in which McVay has handled and developed quarterback Jared Goff in a short amount of time is impressive. We are just four weeks into the season and Goff has completed passes to 11 different receivers. McVay has spurned the young QB into making smart decisions and leading his offense.
