Not only do the Los Angeles Rams fans have an exciting game against the Atlanta Falcons to look forward to during the Wild Card Round, but a performance by Snoop Dogg at halftime as well.

After years of struggling, the Los Angeles Rams and their fans have every reason in the world to be excited over hosting the Atlanta Falcons during the Wild Card Round on Saturday when the NFL Playoffs 2018 officially get underway this weekend. And if the Rams actually participating in a home playoff game wasn’t already exciting enough, fans should also be excited for the concert taking place at halftime as well with Snoop Dogg.

One of the best parts about the Rams moving back to Los Angeles last season was the long list of Hollywood celebrities that would finally be able to attend NFL games in their beloved city, and with Snoop Dogg being a Southern California native, this is quite the surprise for football fans. Over the years, there have been plenty of professional football teams that have taken advantage of participating in the playoffs by bringing a popular performer on board, and with Snoop Dogg being one of the best at what he does, this was a solid choice by the organization.

Who knows, maybe Snoop Dogg will even end up being the surprise good luck charm to help Los Angeles defeat Atlanta come Saturday night, as this game has the potential to be quite the offensive showdown. Then again, the Rams may have the extra advantage of being well rested after Sean McVay took the risk to sit the starters in the regular-season finale against the San Francisco 49ers, so it will be interesting to see how all of this plays out.

Los Angeles fans have been waiting a long time to see a football team participate in the postseason again, and based off how they handled most of the pressure faced in the regular season, McVay’s team should be just fine against the Falcons. Atlanta may be the defending NFC champions, but after losing Kyle Shanahan to San Francisco, this team clearly hasn’t been the same on offense. Not to mention, the Falcons’ defense will have quite the work cut out for them trying to contain the highest-scoring team in the league with the Rams, who finished on top of the NFL by averaging 29.9 points per game this season.
