It's impossible to say until game time, but it's hard to believe McVay won't have his team prepared for Saturday's big game. You can buy eight seats all in a row for all eight members of your family right now at many different locations within the Coliseum.
In a year where left was right and up was down, the Los Angeles Rams going from 4-12 to 11-5 should be an acceptable form of a new normal in an National Football League where what was, isn't necessarily what will be, moving forward.
The Rams would appear to have the edge in balance to go along with the home-field advantage. Everyone in this locker room has been doing everything they can to make sure that when we step on the field this time on Saturday, that we've got everything ready to go.
It's been an inconsistent season for the Falcons.
There is an air of history being made this year. "But you only feel nerves, you only feel pressure and all that stuff if you don't prepare", Rams rookie wide receiver Cooper Kupp said. Not only has Donald had an impressive season, but Grady Jarrett has too. No matter you're perspective, personally, I can agree with both sides. Atlanta enters Saturday with 141 combined games of playoff experience on its roster. The Rams Pro Bowl running back finished the season on an absolute tear, racking up more than 450 total yards and six touchdowns in Weeks 15 and 16. Regardless, Sean McVay carried the torch that was lit by Jeff Fisher and strived - even while in his shadow. L.A.is also 4-1 against the number in its last five games coming off a loss.
If there's one "knock" on these Rams, though, it's inexperience. If anything, Los Angeles residents and other people with the ability to go witness a Rams game should go support the team for the simple fact that they made it to this spot. On fourth-and-short from the 35-yard line, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Rams go for it. It's going to be close, it's going to be tough, but the Rams have this game in the bag. The Falcons may win the game straight up. If the World Series in LA this year showed us anything, it proves that Los Angeles loves winning. 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.
Get out for this game Los Angeles, I guarantee you Matt Ryan will be weakened by the might of Aaron Donald, and the Falcons defense will be torn to shreds by the strong legs of Todd Gurley.
