Championship Weekend – Players to Watch

NFC Championship Game San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams   

Once upon a time, the 49ers and Rams had a raging rivalry in the NFC West.  In the 1970s and 1980s, either the Rams or the 49ers would usually win the NFC West.  But when the Rams moved to St. Louis, the rivalry was badly damaged.  It has taken the Rams’ return to Los Angeles to rekindle the passion.  Now the Rams and Niners will battle for a Super Bowl best shot on Sunday.  The Rams won the 2018 NFC title.  In comparison, the 49ers took the 2019 NFC crown.  Both lost their Super Bowl games.
