The Rams (13-5) will face the Buccaneers (14-4) on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET in the NFL divisional round at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The game will be televised by NBC. 

Los Angeles, which won the NFC West title for the third time under coach Sean McVay, is coming off an impressive 34-11 wild-card victory over the Cardinals. The Rams posted 375 yards of total offense and limited Arizona to just 198 yards and two interceptions, enabling a runaway victory.

Los Angeles also had the 15th-best scoring defense, allowing 21.9 points per game. Its top defensive playmakers were cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who tied a team-best four interceptions along with 77 tackles, and defensive end Aaron Donald, who recorded 12.5 sacks along with 84 tackles.

The Buccaneers advanced to the NFL divisional round with a 31-15 victory over the Eagles on Sunday. Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady, who was a second-team All-Pro selection, completed 29-of-37 passes for 271 yards and two touchdowns while the Buccaneers’ defense forced three turnovers. 

Brady had a terrific regular season at age 44, recording a league-best 5,316 passing yards with 43 touchdowns. He did so while the Buccaneers were without receivers Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown and Scotty Miller at different points due to injury. 

The Buccaneers and Eagles have only met twice before in the postseason: in 2000 and 1979 in the NFC Championship Game. Los Angeles won both meetings, first as a member of Los Angeles in 1979 and then St. Louis in 2000.
