    Rams kicker Zuerlein listed on injury report with foot issue

    THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Kicker Greg Zuerlein appears on the Los Angeles Rams' first injury report before the Super Bowl. Zuerlein is listed with a foot injury on the report distributed Wednesday by the Rams, who had the day off. The right-footed Zuerlein was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot Monday after the Rams returned from New Orleans, but coach Sean McVay said the Rams didn't pick up any serious injuries while winning the NFC championship game. Zuerlein is among the NFL's most powerful and most reliable kickers. He comfortably made a 57-yard field goal in overtime to send the Rams to their first Super Bowl in 17 years. He also made a 48-yarder with 15 seconds left in regulation

    Rams deserve better than what L.A. fans have been delivering

    Behind the cashier at the Canal Street tourist trap I had wandered into was a wall of sports-themed Mardi Gras necklaces. I originally walked in searching for a T-shirt for extra layering because it was unusually cold, but one of the trinkets caught my eye so I thought: why not? “Could I get the Rams necklace behind you?” Good thing this happened before the NFC Championship game. Judging by the speed in which her smile morphed into a chilling side eye, no telling what she would have done to me had this happened afterward. “You want what?” “The Rams necklace.” A beat pass. Then another. It was like a scene in a Quentin Tarantino movie. Finally, she broke the standoff by first sucking her teeth

    Matthew Slater, son of Rams Hall of Famer Jackie Slater, gives Patriots a heads-up

    Jackie Slater is regarded as one of the greatest offensive linemen of all time for what he accomplished during his 20-year career with the Rams. But success didn't follow Slater when he trotted to the middle of the field for the coin toss before games. “I think I lost something like 17 straight coin tosses,” he said.

    Andrew Whitworth: Blaming officials for missed call is “an excuse”

    Andrew Whitworth is 37 years old, in his 13th season, and before this season, the Rams left tackle had never won a playoff game. He was 0-for-7 until the Rams beat the Cowboys and then the Saints to reach the Super Bowl. So don’t try telling Whitworth the Rams didn’t win fair and square. The [more]

    Jared Goff's Hometown Bursting With Pride Over Rams QB

    NOVATO (CBS SF) — Tom & Patty Schalich admit to being fans of New England Patriots quarterback and Bay Area native Tom Brady, but those feelings do not apply to Super Bowl LIII. Like their Novato neighbors, the Schalichs are being swept up by Rams fever — a sports malady directly traceable to a quiet former Marin Catholic standout — Rams quarterback Jared Goff. “I like Tom Brady, but Tom has had his success, and we're going to be rooting for Jared,” Tom told KPIX 5 CBS San Francisco. “”You know, after the game I see him interviewed, and he's just so polite and poised, just seems like, just a nice guy.” Patty says his demeanor reflects the town where he grew up. “It's a very small community, it's

    Rams general manager Les Snead looking for one more prize

    On their way to the Super Bowl, the Rams collected souvenirs and other trinkets. In a joyous locker room after the victory over the Saints, general manager Les Snead was as happy as anyone to have checked off another box on the way to the NFL's showcase event. A few days later, after the elation subsided, Snead looked at the run-up pragmatically. “All that's done now is put you in a spot where you've got an opportunity to go get a bigger trophy,” Snead said Wednesday.

    Saints Fans Sue To Overturn Rams' Playoff Berth

    LOS ANGELES, CA — Saints fans crying foul sued the National Football League and its commissioner Roger Goodell Tuesday, hoping to overturn Sunday's victory that gave the Los Angeles Rams a Super Bowl berth. The lawsuit, brought by a pair of New Orleans Saints season ticket holders in a Louisiana state court, seeks to force the league to review a controversial non-call in the Rams 26-23 overtime victory. For many Saints fans, the Rams were able to come from behind and beat the Saints because officials failed to call pass interference on Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman, who knocked over Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis late in regulation. Lewis didn't catch the pass, and the Saints had to go

    NFL: 'Romostradamus' earns plaudits ahead of Super Bowl debut

    (Reuters) - Former NFL quarterback turned television commentator Tony Romo, who has impressed audiences with his ability to forecast what play an offense is about to run, on Wednesday said to expect more of the same when he calls next month's Super Bowl. Romo, who played 14 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys before retiring in 2016, had already earned the nickname "Romostradamus" for his predictive powers but took his clairvoyance to another level over the weekend. Late in the AFC championship game between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, he told viewers to watch certain players as they lined up and then announced what play was coming next. That led to a string of stunningly

    More People In LA Watched Patriots-Chiefs Than Rams-Saints

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots play in Super Bowl LIII on Feb. 3 but the Pats have already won the TV ratings battle in the LA market. According to Wall Street Journal media reporter Joe Flint, 2.1 million Angelenos watched the Rams defeat the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game, while 2.5 million in L.A. watched the Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. The challenges the Rams and Chargers have faced in gaining fans in the competitive L.A. sports market have been well documented. There could be one way for the Rams to make millions of Angelenos loyal to their team: hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

    Rams should be thrilled with NFL's referee choice for Super Bowl LIII

    Leading up to the NFC championship game, Los Angeles Rams fans were outraged. They couldn't believe the league had assigned Bill Vinovich to the game, knowing the Rams were 0-8 in games where he was the official. One fan was so enraged that he started a petition to get Vinovich removed from the game. Thousands of fans signed it, hoping to change the referee assignment before kickoff. To the surprise of no one – probably not even to the people who signed the petition – Vinovich stuck. Knowing how the game played out with Nickell Robey-Coleman's missed pass interference on Tommylee Lewis, Rams fans should be happy the petition didn't work. Fortunately, they have nothing to complain about with the

    Snead's big bets on Rams' future pay off in Super Bowl trip

    One year ago, general manager Les Snead and the Los Angeles Rams' front office decided they had to jump through the championship window that had suddenly, shockingly appeared before them. Now that they've landed on their feet in Atlanta, Snead has zero regrets about writing the checks and making the commitments necessary for his Super Bowl-bound team to make that leap. "After winning the division last year, after contending last year, we sat back and said, 'We definitely feel like we can do this, and we could do this consistently for a little while,'" Snead said Wednesday. The Rams reached the playoffs last season for the first time in 13 years, with rookie coach Sean McVay leading a seven-win improvement for a franchise that hadn't had a winning season since 2003.

    Patriots QB Tom Brady's third-down playoff stats are incredible

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's improvement on third downs in the NFL playoffs is a huge reason why his team is headed to Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta to play the Los Angeles Rams. The Patriots, and Brady in particular, struggled throughout the regular season to convert on third downs, especially when they passed the ball in those situations. The postseason, however, has been a far different story. Check out the stats below as proof. The Patriots really excelled on third down during their 37-31 overtime win against the Kansas City Chiefs in Sunday's AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium. They converted 13 of 19 third-down plays versus the Chiefs overall. The Patriots converted

    There are all kinds of missed connection ads on the New Orleans Craigslist page. The one for "pretty gym girl'' in Algiers. Or the handsome banker in Covington. Or the hot guy at the French Quarter piano bar. This ad, however, posted on Monday (Jan. 21) goes out to a certain ref at the NFC Championship game between the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. “Hey there. You were a ref at the game and I was a pass interference call. I know that you noticed me near the sideline with 1:48 left in the game, but you must have been too shy to flag me. “If you see this tell me what number Saints player got knocked to the ground by the offending Rams playa
