Quarterback Matthew Stafford says the Los Angeles Rams have to hit the big plays when the San Francisco 49ers defence gives them the opportunity in Sunday's NFC Championship clash.
The Rams, who are 21/10 to win Super Bowl LVI in their home stadium next month, lost both regular season games against the 5/1 Niners, scoring just ten points in the Week 10 clash at Levi's Stadium.
Stafford was intercepted twice and sacked twice on one of his worst days for the franchise - finishing with just 5.9 yards per attempt and 15 incompletions.
The former Detroit Lions star, who lost all three of his playoff games for the NFC North team, proved his ability in the clutch by finding Cooper Kupp for the 44-yard connection that set up the Rams' winning field goal against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday.
And he expects there to be some - but maybe not that many - opportunities to make big plays against a San Francisco defence that shut the Green Bay Packers down at a snowy Lambeau Field on Saturday.
San Francisco's defence is known for frequently dropping seven men into coverage and still getting pressure on the quarterback, but they confused Aaron Rodgers by blitzing their safeties and still double covering his favourite target Davonte Adams last weekend.
"There aren't a ton of varied looks," Stafford told the Associated Press.
"They do a great job stunting their defensive line and moving guys after the snap. It's about execution for us, guys doing the right thing play in and play out, and when we're getting the opportunities to hit big plays, we have to hit them."
