On Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams beat the New Orleans Saints in the NFC championship game by a score of 26-23. This means that the Rams will play in the Super Bowl for the first time since 2001.

The head coach of the Rams, Sean McVay, stayed calm through the first quarter even though the Saints were leading by a score of 13-0. The Rams eventually made a comeback and won in overtime with quarterback Jared Goff making 25 out of 40 passes for 297 yards along with a touchdown. Defensively, both Ndamukong Suh and Aaron Donald trapped Drew Brees, the quarterback for the Saints.

The Rams' victory was made possible by their last trades such as trading Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters with the New England Patriots to receive Brandin Cooks and Ndamukong Suh.

The Rams will face either the Chiefs or the Patriots in Super Bowl LIII on February 3rd at the Mercedes-Benz stadium in Atlanta. The victory for the Rams means that Sean McVay will become the youngest head coach to make it into the Super Bowl.
