This matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals is one few would have picked at the start of the season. The Rams went all in and were Athlon's consensus pick to win the NFC. But the Bengals were our pick to be last in the AFC North.
How quickly things can change with a franchise quarterback.
Yes, this game will be all about the quarterbacks, with Cincinnati's Joe Burrow turning his franchise around from being the No. 1 pick to the Super Bowl two years later. And Matthew Stafford, who had never previously won a playoff game, has the Rams knocking on the door of title in his first year in Tinseltown.
Of course, there are plenty of other stars in this game, including seven 2022 Pro Bowlers, from Offensive Rookie of the Year Ja'Marr Chase to three-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald. Not to mention all the under-the-radar players who could become the next David Tyree.
