Huge momentum shift. Some big plays by the Rams, including that big Cooks catch. Some badly needed points going into the half.

Yeah, impressive score by LA at the end of the first half.

It's a game now. Early on it looked like the Saints were going to run away with it in the same way the Patriots did in the first half last week.

Rams looked like ass on that 90 second possession. Then the chop block on the kickoff return didn’t help. You don’t want to give Brees free yards.

After a punt from the endzone + 15 yards on the penalty, the Rams did very well to keep the Saints from adding at least 3 more points there. Dodged a bullet, well done.

Really surprised Gurley has been a non-factor in this. Goff has been using his receivers a lot in this one.

Missed penalties on both sides. Saints have to feel great about holding them to three here after those big plays.

Goff should have taken that in for the score. If not for the delay of game, I would have gone for it.

Anderson has been taking most of the carries. Goff has been coming big since right before the end of the 2nd quarter.

The defense has been playing well, so I thought it was the right move to take the pts than gamble on 4th and 1 and risk getting stuffed,.

Re: 2018 NFL Playoffs - Conference Championships 01/20/2019

That settling for the FG shows you the inexperience of the Rams coach vs the Saints coach. All New Orleans has to do here is run it a few times, kick the FG, and pack for Atlanta.

Yup, the Saints are running the clock and will kick the FG.

One of the worst non-calls I have ever seen in my life. That's amazing.

Wow, HUGE missed penalty. Wow.

That was obvious/clear in real-time.

That's a game changer.

Holy shit. Rams dodged a bullet. That was such a foul. It would have been 1st and goal.

Pulling for the Rams, kinda, but I agree with you 100%. That was inexcusable.

If I were a Saints defender I would play as dirty as I could right now. The refs wouldn’t dare flag PI now.
