Los Angeles (+3) at New Orleans (1-20-19)

Recommended Posts

3:05 EST    Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Erin Andrews (The 'A' Team) on FOX

the NFC final game. Over-under at 57 inside the old Louisiana SuperDome

 

QB Jared Goff (364 of 561, 4,688 yards, 32 TDs, 12 INTs) has to be happy to get anther shot at the Saints, who beat L.A. 45-35 in week nine.

The Rams have top receivers in Robert Woods (86 catches, 1,219 yards) and Brandin Cooks (80 catches, 1,204 yards) but last week they got over 100 yards rushing out of speedy Todd Gurley and hard running reject CJ Anderson.

   The Rams (14-3) scored 30 or more points 13 times in regular season 16 games.  They were No. 2 in the NFL in total yards with 6,738 in 16 games and No. 1 in first downs (401) .  But this will be the first time in 18 games this year that the Rams are not favored. The Saints have allowed just 1,283 yards rushing (80 yards rushing) in the regular season.

 

NOLA QB Drew (King Creole) Brees (364 of 489, 3,992 yards,. 32 TDs, 5 INTs) led the NFL in completion percentage (74.4%) and he fond a way to rally the saints from a 14-0 deficit to beat Philadelphia last week.

If the Saints' offense has seem lame in recent weeks that's not your imagination. New Orleans has scored 115 points (17.5 ) in their last six games.  

Still, all-NFL WR Michael Thomas (125 catches, 1,405 yards) and RV Alvin Komara (18 TDs) are ready to roll against a Rams' defense that game up an uncomfortable 2,000 yards rushing in 16 games.

 

   In the 45-35 game, the Saints' Michael Thomas gained a career-high 211 yards on 12 catches and his matchup with Rams CB Aqib Talib (who did not play in that game) is the feature matchup here. .The Rams have 18 pass interceptions but nobody picks off Brees.  They have 42 sacks (Aaron Donald has 20) 1/2) but nobody sacks Brees either. The Rams paid a lot of money for a lot of veterans with the thought that they'd be in this game.  On the other hand, Drew Brees is older than dirt and this is likely the last time he'll be in a conference championship game. 

 

     Here's a delayed Christmas gift. The over-under is 57..and somebody's smokin' something . Take the 'under' The Saints simply haven't scored a lot of points lately and they are facing a defensive line that will cause them problems. I dont see Goff rolling up big yards on the road against the New Orleans defense that has 44 sacks and has allowed 72 rushing first downs in 16 games.

 

    To be honest, while these two teams deserve to be here and either would make a worthy Super Bowl team, both of the are as boring as C-Span. Unless Talib starts snatching chains or Ndamukong Suh steps on somebody, you may have to go out and shovel snow at halftime to stay awake.  

Take the under, turn down the sound and 'binge watch' Law and Order.

I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic,   but the saints and rams are certainly not boring.

So far, it's been a defensive matchup. Rams had a costly interception and their offense isn't looking too hot to start. Saints O is being held up in the redzone. 

 

Definitely an interesting start to the game. Saints could really open stuff up with a score. 

 

6-0 Saints up for those not able to watch.

So, this week they don't call running into the kicker? Because it's "playoff football"? So, why did they call it against us last week when it legitimately could have been ruled incidental contact? Always interesting to see which teams get preferential treatment.

Rams are getting killed here...

Yep. Wade's defense is looking undisciplined, which is uncharacteristic.

Homefield advantage is huge in this game. 

 

Makes me wonder how loud the Chiefs fans will be tonight.

Goff is playing like the moment is too big for him but that fake Punt saved the Rams. Trickery lmao 

Definitely jumpstarted the Rams offense. They're gettin' some momentum back.

FG's aren't going to cut it against Brees in his dome. Still 13-3.

How was that not defensive holding?!

Is it me or have they allowed a little more defensive holding in the secondary in the post-season..?

They always do.    It's pretty dumb.   If it's a penalty in the regular season, it should be in the post season

We got a ball game! 

 

Saints up 13-10 after a fast scoring drive by Goff, Cooks and Gurley.

Both teams playing good defense but in the playoffs only complete teams win the SB. Even in 2006 our defense played well in the playoffs.

That is one reason why I want the Saints to win, just in case the Pats do win. I don't believe the Rams will beat the Pats, I trust Brees much more than Goff. I can't see the Pats losing 2 SB's in a row to Foles than Goff.

Rams TD pass to TE Higbee at the 3 yardline. He was wide open. But the threat of handing off to RB's don't help the passing game?.haha

    • The Eagles are super banged up! Top 2 WR out now their starting RB. Going be hard for them to score I think.
    • Put me in the camp calling for a free agent WR as well as one taken high in the draft. We all know that it takes a couple of years to hit your stride as a pro WR. I don’t think the team can wait for that. The Colts need to improve at this position immediately, especially with TY showing the inevitable signs of aging, i.e. he’s dinged up constantly. I’m not sure what will be out there next year FA-wise, but I know this: they can’t fix this problem with draft picks alone. 
    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/american-football/50448708   Looks like he's not given up on getting a gig in then NFL, but acting like this is getting to endear him to organisations. I can understand that he might not agree with the terms of the workout, but you've got to handle it more professionally than this.    Shame, I really do think he has talent. 
    • Most of us HATE injustice. We saw it with the OJ situation: part of the country wanted justice for all of the times police overstepped their boundaries and innocent people got arrested or convicted. The other part of our population wanted a murderer convicted for killing two people. Both sides wanted justice.         Same is true for police brutality and social injustice. To me, these are individual acts done by individuals and protests against the flag are misguided. It’s saying this country stands for injustice and inequality and nothing can be further from the truth.          We live in a country that provides the opportunity for all people to do well: Athletes, Doctors, Businessmen, Pastors, Actors and Musicians have reaped the benefits of living in this great country.         I have no problem with anyone protesting individual acts of racism or injustice. But to protest the flag is misguided.
