The matchup for the 2022 NFC Championship Game is officially settled, and it brings a pair of long-time rivals matching up. The Los Angeles Rams will host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, January 30. The game will air on FOX and kickoff is set for 6:40 p.m. ET.
The 49ers advance with a stunning win over the Green Bay Packers. It was the second time Kyle Shanahan’s squad has beaten the Packers in the playoffs, and the fourth straight playoff loss Aaron Rodgers has suffered to the 49ers. The 49ers failed to score an offensive touchdown, making their lone end zone trip on a blocked punt. Robbie Gould kicked the game-winning field goal as the game clock expired to secure the upset.
The Rams beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a wild finish in Florida. The Rams jumped up 27-3 and looked like they would cruise. However, Tom Brady did Tom Brady things and the Bucs scratched and clawed their way back to tie the game at 27 with 42 seconds left. But it was Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp who made late magic. The Rams drove 63 yards in 42 seconds and won on their own last second field goal.
The Rams opened as 3.5-point home favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook. However, it’s worth noting that they were swept by the 49ers in the 2021 regular season, including a 3-point overtime win over the Rams in SoFi stadium in Week 18.
Here are all the details we have for the 49ers-Rams matchup in the 2022 NFC Championship game.
