The Los Angeles Rams (13/2 Super Bowl LVI Winner) became the last team to secure their place in the NFL Divisional Round on Monday night as they saw off NFC West rivals the Arizona Cardinals.
Former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr scored the first play-off touchdown of his career on the Rams’ way to a convincing 34-11 victory over the Cardinals in Inglewood, LA.
Having seen the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6/1 Super Bowl LVI Winner) become the first team to win a Super Bowl at their own stadium last season, the Rams are looking to do the same this year, with the showpiece event at their SoFi Stadium on February 13.
To get there they must first get past the reigning champions Tampa Bay (Buccaneers 8/13, Rams 13/10 – Money Line), who themselves booked their place in the Divisional Round thanks to a 31-15 victory on home turf against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Elsewhere, Pittsburgh bade farewell to long-serving quarterback Ben Reothlisberger as the Steelers suffered a 42-21 defeat at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
New England suffered their heaviest play-off defeat under coach Bill Belichick as the Patriots were thrashed 47-17 against AFC East rivals the Buffalo Bills.
The San Francisco 49ers managed to hold their nerve to edge out the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas thanks to a 23-17 victory.
And last but not least, the Cincinnati Bengals earned a first play-off victory for 31 years with a 26-19 win against the Las Vegas Raiders.
