RJ Bell: "If you think aobut the narrative right now, the dominant narrative, what is the dominant narrative in this game?"
AJ Hoffman: "That Kyle Shanahan has won six straight games against Sean McVay."
RJ Bell: "Exactly. Exactly. If you think about it, that could be something that's a little quirky, a little deceiving...but really, that's not the case here. The most recent game, in Week 18, was a chance for McVay to win the division. A chance to bury his rival, the rivalry that has spawned a few memes. If you're McVay, there's nothing you wanted more on earth than to win in Week 18, and they still couldn't do that."

Ahead of this weekend's NFC Championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams, RJ Bell and AJ Hoffman look at a couple of the narratives that will dominate the talk around the game, as Los Angeles is currently a 3.5 point favorite to win the game and advance to the Super Bowl.
