The Los Angeles Rams defeated the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30-27 Sunday after Matt Gay kicked the game-winning field goal as time expired.

“I live for those kinds of moments,” Stafford said, who completed a pass to Cooper Kupp that set up the field goal attempt. “I would have loved to have been taking a knee when you’re up by three scores, but it’s a whole lot more fun when you got to make a play like that to win the game and just steal somebody’s soul.”

With the victory, Los Angeles is set to play the NFC championship title game against the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday at SoFi Stadium. The Rams have defeated the 49ers the last six times they’ve played.

The Rams were leading by 24 points in the third quarter before the Bucs made a comeback to tie the game. But, Tampa Bay gave Los Angeles just enough time left on the clock to get the win.

The star of the game was Stafford, who managed to throw two touchdown passes and rush for another. He was supported by the Rams offensive line, which had an outstanding game, and a defense that sacked Brady three times and intercepted him once.

In the game, Stafford completed 28 of 38 attempts for 366 yards. His 70-yard pass to Kupp in the second quarter gave the Rams a 17-3 lead. His one-yard rush extended the Rams lead to 27-3.
