Man oh man, talk about a thriller.

The Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints went back and forth for four quarters, and that simply wasn’t enough as the game was extended to overtime.

The game will be over-shadowed by some spotty referee work, but that’s how it is. Plenty of calls were blown on both ends, so at least that’s the case.

That’s alright, because Greg Zuerlein comes in clutch twice. Once to tie the game and send it to overtime, and once to win the game on a 57-yard field goal. The offense played inconsistently at times, but they really came through when it counted the most. Defensively, they made enough plays, especially the interception from SS John Johnson III in overtime to give the offense the ball.

Jared Goff made multiple game-saving drives on the final drive as he avoided multiple sacks to gain yardage on darts to TE Tyler Higbee.

My word. The Los Angeles Rams are headed back to the Superbowl.
