Let’s start our NFL playoff experience by watching two spoiled-rotten warm weather teams play. It’s going to be 19 degrees Celsius in LA come kickoff time. Please, look north and see the giant middle finger coming from the northeastern states and Canada. Anyways, on to the game. The schedule-makers knew what they were doing when they booked this game for the prime time of day 1. I think it could be the best of the first round.

I feel like these teams are pretty evenly matched up, and both equally poorly equipped to take on The Eagles in the next round. However, it’s hard to argue with the league’s best offense, playing on their home field. The Rams scored 29.9 points per game, and just beat out the Patriots for the league’s best offense (on paper). So I feel like the smart money is to take the Rams, but I don’t see them beating the spread. This will be a tight one. 

Prediction: The Los Angeles Rams (-5.5) at Sports Interaction

The LA Rams won the NFC West this year with a record of 11-5. Now, consider that The Rams were only 4-4 at home. Now proceed to scratch your head accordingly. Fortunately, LA went 7-1 on the road this year, tied for most road wins in the entire NFL. Props. Who did they lose to at home? The 49ers, who went on a 5-game surge to end the season and ruin their draft pick. The Eagles, who were a 13-3 team. The Redskins, who were a very meh-but-dangerous team. And the Seahawks, who were 9-7 and had a winning road record on the year. So most of those are forgivable.

But they have a real game breaker and legitimate NFL MVP candidate in Todd Gurley. Gurley-man led the NFL in total yards from scrimmage. He also finished the regular season like a refrigerator falling down a hill and dominated with 450 total yards and 6 touchdowns in Weeks 15 and 16. All that work accounted for more than 60 percent of The Rams’ yardage in those games and over 52 percent of their points. Can he keep rolling?

Meanwhile, the Falcons fought their way into a playoff spot through a stacked NFC south. Atlanta was 5-3 on the road this year. This has been a very streaky year for the dirty birds, as they flew out of the gates on fire and won 3 big games to start, then dropped their next 3 to squander a great start. But they finished the season winning 3 of their last 4 games, including last week’s big win over the Panthers. Atlanta held teams to 19.7 points per game this season and had the 8th best defense in the NFL. They also had the 8th best offense, scoring 22.1 per game.
