49ers-Rams: How to watch, stream, and listen to the NFC Championship Game

Jan 26, 2022 at 8:50 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers return to the NFC Championship Game for the second time in three seasons as they travel to take on the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium. This marks just the second postseason meeting between the two teams, with the 49ers earning a 30-3 victory over the Rams in the NFC Championship Game on January 14, 1990.

The 49ers are coming off a 13-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. K Robbie Gould connected on a 45-yard game-winning field goal as time expired, marking his postseason career's second walk-off field goal. DB Jimmie Ward blocked a Packers K Mason Crosby 39-yard field goal attempt, and DL Jordan Willis blocked a Packers P Corey Bojorquez punt. The 49ers became the first team to block both a field goal attempt and a punt since January 1, 1989, when the Buffalo Bills accomplished the feat versus the Houston Oilers (AFC-D). S Talanoa Hufanga recovered the blocked punt and returned it six yards for a touchdown. It marked the first time a member of the 49ers has returned a blocked punt for a touchdown in the postseason in franchise history.

The defense led San Francisco, with the 49ers allowing just 67 rushing yards and sacking Packers QB Aaron Rodgers five times. DL Nick Bosa registered three tackles, 2.0 sacks, and one forced fumble. DL Arik Armstead notched five tackles and 2.0 sacks. DL Samson Ebukam added three tackles and 1.0 sack in the game. LB Fred Warner finished with six tackles and the first forced fumble of his postseason career as LB Dre Greenlaw added six tackles of his own and the first fumble recovery of his postseason career.

On offense, TE George Kittle registered four receptions for a postseason career-high 63 yards on the night, including a postseason career-long 24-yard catch. WR Deebo Samuel finished the game with 83 yards from scrimmage (44 receiving & 39 rushing).

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size.
