Rams win playoffs against Cardinals: Now Tom Brady is waiting with the Buccaneers

The Los Angeles Rams are through in the NFL playoffs and still have hopes of a Super Bowl appearance at home. Against the Arizona Cardinals, the team won 34-11 after a 21-0 half-time lead on Monday evening (local time) at SoFi Stadium. While the season is over for the Cardinals, the Rams will take on defending champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend — who last season became the first NFL team to win the Super Bowl at home. The Buccaneers around quarterback Tom Brady lost the duel in the main round, but are still slightly favored against the Rams on Sunday (9 p.m. CET).

Against the Cardinals, the Rams lived up to their role as favorites and benefited from many mistakes made by their opponents. Quarterback Kyler Murray made two interceptions and was particularly annoyed by a scene in the second quarter: instead of going down with the ball in his own end zone and accepting the two points for the safety, he threw the ball away uncontrollably – and saw the Rams run to a touchdown with it.

Cardinals defenseman Budda Baker had to be taken off the field in the second half after colliding with the stretcher. He had previously been treated for a long time in the field and appeared to have briefly lost consciousness. He came to the hospital for examinations.
