Report :Lions want to beat Rams in NFC playoff game , drama full story .

 The NFL playoffs are here, and for the first time as a head coach in this league, Dan Campbell will be joining in the celebration‌.

His Detroit Lions (12-5) will host the Los Angeles Rams (10-7) at Ford Field on Sunday at 8 p.m.

ET, the game will be broadcast on NBC.

It’s the moment he’s been waiting for.

“It’s good to have a playoff game against them here,” Campbell said Monday.

“This team has a lot of guys that have been to the Super Bowl.

They were in there.

This head coach (Sean McVay) has done a great job with them.


.It was fun, but now it’s really getting fun.

That’s why we do it.

That’s why we train, that’s why we play, that’s what this moment deserves,” Campbell said Monday about the matchup and the week ahead.

About Tight Ends Sam LaPorta’s Health The first order of business on Monday was the status of LaPorta, Detroit’s star rookie tight end.

Laporta left Sunday’s game with an injury to his knee, and his leg broke awkwardly while trying to make a catch.

He never played again, and things certainly weren’t great when he was played again.

Overall, Laporta was able to avoid serious injury.

Jeff Howe of The Athletic reported Sunday that LaPorta suffered a hyperextended knee and a bone bruise in Detroit’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Lions are monitoring his condition and have not ruled out playing him in the wild card game.

“Laporta now has an opportunity on the outside, so we’ll see,” Campbell said Monday.

“We’ll know a lot in the next 48 hours.

We’re talking days (instead of weeks), and I think that’s a good thing.

” “Outside ‘Shot’ isn’t exactly a vote of confidence, but the Lions will definitely take it.

This could have been much worse.

If LaPorta can return to play in the district round, a Lions win over the Rams should be considered a win for everyone involved.

And when asked about the possibility of adding a veteran like Zach Ertz, Campbell said he believes the Lions are in good hands going into the game with their current team.

If Laporta can’t play on Sunday, it won’t be easy to replace his production.

LaPorta finished the regular season with 86 receptions for 889 yards and 10 touchdowns, setting an NFL record for receptions by a rookie tight end.

He is the Lions’ second-best receiver and will be a reliable weapon in quarterback Jared Goff’s passing game.

If he is unavailable, the Lions will need to call up tight end Brock Wright, who is recovering from a hip injury, and second-year tight end James Mitchell.
