    Holy cow, that was unexpected.

    30 min ago, I would have never thought that this game was going to finish just like the last 2 games this weekend.

    And they just got a massive gift of timing. Turn over by downs BEFORE the personal foul- they at least get the ball back.

    This is crazy all of a sudden.

    But if anyone can blow a lead, it's the Rams. Just two weeks removed from blowing a 17pt lead to the 49ers.

    Interesting stat. Points out how the teams have maintained a pretty high level of play over the entire time. Given it's only '22, plenty of chances for all 4 teams.

    Although, it would be nice to see the Lions get a chance over the Vikings.
    Another interesting conference championship game stat, Lions' version:

    With Cincinnati winning yesterday, the longest (by season*) current conference title game appearance drought is shared between the Detroit Lions and the Washington Redskins. They played each other in the 1991 NFC Championship Game. Neither has returned since.

    * The Houston Texans have never appeared in the conference title game, but they have only been in existence since 2002. The Cleveland Browns have not appeared in the conference title game since 1989; however, the Browns were not in existence from 1996 to 1998. Thus, the Lions and Redskins have played 1 more season than the Browns since their last respective championship title game appearances.

    If LA holds on, the Rams will become the first franchise to appear in a conference championship game in every decade since they came into existence (70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s, 20s).

    The only other franchises that have a chance to match this feat (with an appearance in a championship game this decade) are: Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Denver Broncos.

    I like how both games today involve teams fighting for getting to host a CCG with both #1 seeds losing.

    Since I'm in the Bay Area and my wife is a 49ers fan, I'm rooting for TB because it would be statistically cool if the 49ers played LAR-DAL-GB-TB in the last 4 games, all of the top 4 seeds, with the first 3 being nailbiters and hopefully the fourth.

    Fun fact: since 2003, only 5 QBs have represented the AFC in the SB, while 16 have represented the NFC.
    Also, if TB wins and hosts SF, just how badly do you suppose Tom Brady is gonna humiliate his one-time heir apparent Jimmy G? He'll have some extra motivation for that game for sure.

    Someone forgot to mention that to the Packers.

    <insert long drawn out argument about playoffs, best team, etc.>

    Either way, it's either a product of the rules or the press. It's also why pro football is so extraordinarily boring.

    Perhaps.

    There are 10 different QBs on that list. They have combined for 12 Super Bowl wins and 23 Super Bowl appearances.

    There are 4 non-QBs on that list. They have combined for 1 Super Bowl win and 3 Super Bowl appearances.

    2000: Marshall Faulk - St. Louis Rams (lost Wild Card Round)
    2001: Kurt Warner - St. Louis Rams (lost Super Bowl)
    2002: Rich Gannon - Oakland Raiders (lost Super Bowl)
    2003: Co-Winners - Peyton Manning - Indianapolis Colts (lost AFC Championship); Steve McNair - Tennessee Titans (lost Divisional Round)
    2004: Peyton Manning - Indianapolis Colts (lost Divisional Round)
    2005: Shaun Alexander - Seattle Seahawks (lost Super Bowl)
    2006: LaDanian Tomlinson - San Diego Chargers (lost Divisional Round)
    2007: Tom Brady - New England Patriots (lost Super Bowl)
    2008: Peyton Manning - Indianapolis Colts (lost Wild Card Round)
    2009: Peyton Manning - Indianapolis Colts (lost Super Bowl)
    2010: Tom Brady - New England Patriots (lost Divisional Round)
    2011: Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers (lost Divisional Round)
    2012: Adrian Peterson - Minnesota Vikings (lost Wild Card Round)
    2013: Peyton Manning - Denver Broncos (lost Super Bowl)
    2014: Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers (lost NFC Championship)
    2015: Cam Newton - Carolina Panthers (lost Super Bowl)
    2016: Matt Ryan - Atlanta Falcons (lost Super Bowl)
    2017: Tom Brady - New England Patriots (lost Super Bowl)
    2018: Patrick Mahomes - Kansas City Chiefs (lost AFC Championship)
    2019: Lamar Jackson - Baltimore Ravens (lost Divisional Round)
    2020: Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers (lost NFC Championship)
    2021: ???

    Perhaps equally crazy, 9 NFL MVP's in this time span have made the Super Bowl, but are 0-9 in the Super Bowl.
    too many QBs
