Gurley, Anderson run Rams to NFC Championship Game


The Rams are one win away from another Super Bowl trip after McVay's inventive offense largely stuck to old-time football basics behind their unlikely running back tandem and an offensive line determined to assert its superiority.

If this were the case, then the likely answer would be to move one of the games to Monday night.

The Indianapolis offense isn't a juggernaut like the Kansas City one is, but Andrew Luck and company showed against the Houston Texans a week ago that they're no joke.

The Chiefs and Colts may have the most entertainment in the AFC. He led the Chiefs on touchdown drives of 90 and 70 yards to open the game, quickly identified a favorite target in Travis Kelce, and shook off a banged-up knee to scramble for a touchdown late in the first half to give his team a big cushion.

But Mahomes insisted that whoever it is, he and his team will be ready. Despite producing back-to-back division titles for the first time in almost four decades, both coach and quarterback knew the results that matter most are those produced in the playoffs.

This will be a tight game throughout, it will be high scoring and will come down to which quarterback can produce - if you ask me - I'm riding with Brady. "I would expect there to be conversations about that through the weekend as things happen".

The Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs have won through to the NFL's conference championship matches. However, Philly hasn't forgotten that Nick Foles didn't play in that game.

Later tonight the Rams will try to throw their incredibly efficient offense at a Cowboys defense that recently shut down Drew Brees and his stellar Saints offense. Dak Prescott has been serviceable, but has yet to put up a big game against a quality team. The Saints destroyed the Eagles in the regular season 48-7. My prediction here is that LA takes the win.

The victor will move on to play the victor of Sunday's (5) Chargers vs. (2) Patriots game. This will be another close game, in my opinion. However, the Patriots didn't seem as strong this season as they have in the past, ending with a record of 11-5, which they haven't done since 2008. The Colts have played well against the pass of late, but Hill has diced up even the best of secondaries this season (Baltimore for 139 yards and the Chargers for 169 yards). This is a matchup of two veteran quarterbacks who are inching towards the end of their careers and this could very well be the last chance for both of them to make a run at a Super Bowl title.

"It means the world to me", he said post-game.

Additionally, for the Rams to host the NFC title game, they would have to beat the Dallas Cowboys at home, and the Philadelphia Eagles would have to knock off the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome.

Gallup finished the game with six catches for 119 yards, which is notable all by itself. However, the Saints seem nearly unstoppable. Still, the running back duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram is a force to be reckon with and having Drew Brees as your quarterback is another huge plus. But the team undoubtedly had a great plan and approach in order to dominate the game on the ground like that. If that is in fact the case, I see the Colts winning and heading to Atlanta.
