Los Angeles Rams: 4 storylines for the NFC Championship Game against the Saints
The NFC Championship Game between the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints looks to be the best game on Sunday. Here are four storylines to look out for.
The Los Angeles Rams will enter the NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints as an underdog. I get that as going on the road, be it in the playoffs or otherwise, is a distinct advantage for the home team.
Be that as it may, the gap between these two teams show little daylight if any. Both have explosive offenses, an exact same record of 13-3, solid head coaches, and enough talent on both sides of the football to warrant being in the championship game.
Storylines abound for Sunday. A veteran Super Bowl winning quarterback in Drew Brees versus a young up and comer in Jared Goff is one that will get some airtime.
You also have the battle of head coaches with the 2017 Coach Of The Year Sean McVay, and one of the best in the game in Sean Payton.
Head to head in 2018, the Saints beat the Rams 45-35 in a game that after watching a second and third time around, you see many instances where Los Angeles left some things on the field that if they don’t this time, will lead to a win.
Let’s face it, both teams can and will make an argument on Championship Sunday for who will not just represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, but make a compelling argument for who wins it.
Like I said, great storylines for what will surely be the best game on Sunday.
