The Rams (14-5) will face the 49ers (12-7) in the 2021-22 NFC Championship Game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. The game will be televised on FOX.
Los Angeles, which defeated the Cardinals and Buccaneers in the wild-card and divisional rounds, respectively, is making its second NFC Championship appearance in the past four years. The Rams defeated the Saints in 2018 to advance to Super Bowl LIII, though they ultimately lost to the Patriots, 13-3.
Los Angeles won the NFC West for the third time in McVay’s five seasons and has had a stellar offensive season, led by quarterback Matthew Stafford, who was traded to the team for former quarterback Jared Goff in the offseason. Stafford ranked second in the NFL in passing touchdowns (41) during the regular season and has thrown for 568 passing yards and four touchdowns against zero interceptions in the postseason.
The 49ers are making their second NFC championship appearance in the last three seasons. San Francisco advanced to Super Bowl LIV in 2019, losing to the Chiefs, after beating the Packers for the conference championship.
The 49ers are arguably the hottest team in the NFL right now, having won seven of their last nine regular-season games to qualify for the postseason. Their defense has allowed just a combined 27 points in their two playoff contests, including 10 to the Packers and likely MVP award winner Aaron Rodgers.
This will be the second postseason meeting between the Rams and 49ers in their history. San Francisco defeated Los Angeles in the 1990 NFC Championship Game, 30-3.
As members of the NFC West, the 49ers have won both regular-season meetings between the teams this season. San Francisco has won six straight since 2019.
