Englewood, California. – After Matthew Stafford’s wife jumped into his arms, he took a moment to absorb everything; That win, that field covered in scrapbook paper, and that wonderful year of his life.
A year after the day the quarterback agreed to join the star-studded Los Angeles Rams with a goal of making it to the Super Bowl, Stafford saw his chances of doing so dwindle upon a look back at the game. When the fourth quarter of the National Conference Finals started and his team was down in the doubles against San Francisco 49ers.
But three bonuses followed by a flawless defensive performance and the Rams earned his place at home in the Super Bowl, and Stafford shone little more than any Rams star that night.
Travin Howard sealed the score with an objection with 1:09 left and the Rams came from behind on Sunday to advance to the Super Bowl with a 20-17 win against the 49ers.
“You couldn’t have written this story better,” Stafford said. I can not Talk. I really enjoy playing ball with these guys and we get one last dance in our court. It is up to us to complete the task. »
The crowning of the NFL season is on February 13th at SoFi Stadium, the home of the Rams. Competitors, the Cincinnati Bengals, will try to spoil the sport at the new multi-billion dollar Stan Kroenke Stadium.
Stafford had 337 passing yards and saw Cooper Cobb twice to score a touchdown for the Rams (15-5), who started the final quarter trailing 17-7. After Kupp’s second major, followed by a 40-yard field goal, Jay scored from 30 yards, with 1:46 on the clock, adding the crucial points.
The Rams’ defense completed the job, and Aaron Donald forced Jimmy Garoppolo into a poor pass, which Howard intercepted.
“I have complete confidence in this defence,” said the 13-year-old veteran Stafford, who had never won a playoff before January. They have been amazing all year round. What a way to end the game! loved it. »
Cobb finished 11 catches for 142 yards in another stunning showdown. Odell Beckham Jr., acquired mid-season, reached the first Super Bowl final of his career. He had nine passes for 113 yards in fencing.
Beckham summed up, “History couldn’t have been better for us: the 49ers played in the National Conference Finals and shut the door on them.”
The Rams have won their second conference title in the last four seasons under head coach Sean McVeigh. The Rams are one step away from what could be their second title in the Super Bowl era.
Deebo Samuel and George Kittle had key passes from Garoppolo, who had 232 air yards. The heartbreaking season for the 49 players (12-8) ended in doubt, while Garoppolo’s return to the squad is more than uncertain.
