Falcons lead Rams 13-10 at halftime of NFC wild-card game

Experts heavily favoring Rams over Falcons for wild-card matchup

The best of that news probably came Friday, when the Rams released their official Wild Card Game injury report and only one player's name was listed on it.

The Falcons defense ranks eighth in points allowed at 19.7 points per game, meaning the Rams' high-scoring attack could be faced with a challenge.

The Falcons also have been on this playoff stage before, while the Rams have only five players on the active roster with playoff experience (only three starters).

Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons showed the upstart Los Angeles Rams what playoff poise is all about.

The Falcons are heading to Philadelphia.

"Doesn't matter where we're going, we're going", Ryan said.

The Los Angeles Rams will indeed have a key piece of the team's defense on Saturday against the Atlanta Falcons.

"I just look at the last ballgame".

Not getting in their own way, like the Chargers are excellent at, is one thing.

Fire officials say the fire started inside the furniture store on the first floor of the building and quickly spread. " #FDNY members continue to operate on scene this morning of a 7-alarm fire, 1547 Commonwealth Ave #Bronx".

The Rams didn't make it easy on them.

Now, it's impossible to expect Atlanta's defence to bottle up Rams star Todd Gurley completely, especially on the ground AND in the passing game...

Our models see Hooper collecting just 2.8 catches and 28.3 yards for 5.9 FanDuel points against the Rams.

If you were told last August the Saints would be NFC South champions after an 11-5 season, your money would've been on Drew Brees dropping another 5,000 yards to go along with at least 35 touchdowns. January 7, 1979, was the last time the Rams held a postseason game in L.A. They moved their home games to Anaheim Stadium the following season, and the franchise moved to St. Louis in 1995. Gurley II sat out the season finale against San Francisco, giving him an extra week to rest up before going up against a Falcons defense that finished ninth in the National Football League in both rushing defense and total defense.

The touchdown reception was the seventh for Jones in eight postseason games. "I'm lucky to be where I am", Phillips said recently.

Donald has been a Pro Bowler in each of his four seasons and, after collecting 11 sacks during the regular season to give him 39 for his career, Donald is set for a huge payday this offseason. "So he had kind of the combination of the make you miss and the ability to kind of size you up and run you over".

The health of Julio Jones might play the biggest factor in whether Ryan can put up similar numbers in these playoffs, as the wide receiver comes into the game nursing an injured left thumb.

While McVay transformed the offense, Phillips got the most out of a team that allowed 20.6 points per game this season, down from 24.6 past year.
