Check out the latest NFC Championship game predictions below.
Los Angeles Rams Analysis:
The regular season loss to the Saints prevented the Rams from finishing with the top seed in the NFC. However, the team isn’t too worried about losing the top seed to the Saints. This is so because they almost beat the Saints during the regular season despite being short-handed. Can it be done again?
This time around, their defense is expected to redeem itself. This after giving up 45 points in the loss. The Rams will stick with what has worked for them so far, running the ball successfully. The team finished with two 100 yard rushers in their win over the Cowboys, making life easier for Jared Goff, who had plenty of time to throw the ball.
This week, they will be hoping for similar success in the running game, but they won’t be afraid to put the ball in the air if they have to.
New Orleans Saints Analysis:
The Saints season could easily have come to an end against the Philadelphia Eagles, but a lucky bounce off the fingers or Alshon Jeffery saved their season. Now, they will need to go back and watch tape to figure out why their offense struggled in that game, especially in the first half.
NFC Championship Game Predictions
Fortunately for the Saints, their defense was able to recover quickly after giving up 14 points in the first quarter. They managed to keep the Eagles out of the end zone for the remaining three quarters and will try to do the same to the Rams on Sunday.
Drew Brees will need to continue his great play when they face the Rams, but he will need Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara to play better than they did against the Eagles, especially in the first half.
In conclusion, if the Saints run the ball successfully, they will be able to control the clock. This in turn will keep Los Angeles’ offense on the sidelines for extended periods. Let’s wait and see.
