Jan. 30, 1:39 p.m.: Buried in a few hours’ really worth of ESPN’s Postseason NFL Countdown on Sunday early morning was one assert that possibly should really be obtaining a little bit additional consideration.

ESPN’s Dianna Russini mentioned Los Angeles Rams midseason acquisition Von Miller confirmed a Rams win as he exited the team’s remaining walkthrough in advance of Sunday’s NFC Championship against the checking out San Francisco 49ers at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.

“He stated he broke down the huddle and he looked in the eyes of the workforce and mentioned, ‘We are heading to gain this activity,'” Russini reported. “I stated, ‘Wait, you’re guaranteeing a win?’ And he stated, ‘The LA Rams are going to defeat the San Francisco 49ers on NFC Championship Sunday.
