49ers/Rams NFC Championship predictions: Expect another rollercoaster win for the Niners

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ We’re all on the “road” team Let’s not waste your time. Let’s get right into the predictions. We’ve broken down this game as much as we could. You know the Rams. I know them. Will this time be any different? Jordan’s prediction: 49ers 31, Rams 20 You didn’t think I’d start picking against this team of destiny, now did you? But, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, something special is going on with this 49ers team (feels like that win at Lambeau vindicated that for what it’s worth). I think the...

6 49ers keys to victory: Can Garoppolo keep cashing in on third downs?

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Breaking down all things 49ers-Rams ahead of Sunday’s NFC Title Game.

The NFC Championship game is the Rams’ third try to end the 49ers’ season

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports Every time these teams squared off this season could’ve been the end of the line for the Niners. Coming into Sunday, that fact might be their biggest edge. As we approach the NFC Championship Game, the third matchup of the Niners and Rams this season, much has been made of their previous meetings, going three years back into the past when you consider San Francisco’s current six-game winning streak over LA. Is it randomness? Particular strategic edges? Or, as certain corners of the Internet would put it, does Kyle Shanahan simply...

This is the first intra-division conference championship in the NFL since 2013. However, the San Francisco 49ers are on the road this time around and will hope for a different result. The Rams are technically the home team, but nearly half of the tickets purchased for Sunday’s contest are from northern California, per StubHub. That’s in addition to losing to the Niners six times in a row, including two with Matthew Stafford. Why do the 49ers...

Photo by Steph Chambers/ One of the Niners biggest weapons discussed the team’s top passer. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been the recipient of plenty of criticism over the past two weeks as he’s posted relatively uninspiring numbers in the Niners’ two postseason games. However, with the 49ers gearing up for the NFC Championship Game against the Los Angeles Rams, tight end George Kittle was asked multiple questions about Jimmy G in his weekly media availability on Thursday. Kittle has been a staunch defender of Garoppolo throughout his 49ers...
