We’re approaching the final weekend of regular season football, but there’s still plenty of action to come! Part of the late window on Sunday sees the Los Angeles Rams host NFC West rivals, the San Francisco 49ers. A win for the home team secures the division title, while the 49ers need a win to feature in the playoffs.
The San Francisco continued their fight for a playoff appearance, and were hit with a loss against the Tennessee Titans in week 16. However, with a favorable matchup against the Texans in their latest game, the 49ers were able to immediately bounce back with a win. Rookie QB Trey Lance threw for 249 yards, with 2 TDs & 1 interception, but impressed many yet again. Now, their playoff fate is in their own hands - a win & they’re in. Lose, and the Saints have a chance to take San Francisco’s spot.
Despite being 7-16 down going into the fourth quarter of week 17, the Los Angeles Rams mounted a comeback against the Ravens, and got the home victory, winning 20-19. Now, with just one game left, the Rams have the opportunity to secure the NFC West title for the first time in three years. With a win, they will have home advantage for the wildcard round of the playoffs. As they lost to Green Bay earlier this season, the No.1 seed in the NFC is now out of reach.
We’re predicting that the Los Angeles Rams will win on Sunday, and will have home advantage in the first round of games in the postseason! NFC West battles are always highly-anticipated matchups, and the final week of the regular season just adds to the excitement. Ultimately, however, we’re expecting the Rams to finish the season with a home victory against their rivals.
