2019 NFC Championship Game : Rams vs Saints At Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans

The Los Angeles Rams are one game away from the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2001 season and the first time in Los Angeles since 1989.




Their opponent is one that they have already seen this season in Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. If they can get past the Saints, they’ll book their trip to Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII and a chance to win the second Super Bowl in franchise history.

On offense, the Rams proved last week that they are capable of dominating a good run defense, as they ran for 273 yards and three touchdowns against a Cowboys team that ranked in the top 5 in rush defense this year. However, the Saints present an even tougher challenge, as they were the second best team in the league by average yards per game allowed (80.2). The Saints will be without defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins who tore his Achilles in last week’s game, but linebackers Demario Davis, A.J. Klein and Alex Anzalone have all been disruptive (21 TFL) in the run game this season.

Vegas has the Saints as three point favorites, but that is the customary three points given to any team that is playing at home. Basically, what the oddsmakers are saying is, these teams are fairly even, the biggest edge New Orleans has is that the game is in their home stadium. We’ll find out on Sunday, but this should once against be a thrilling game to watch.
