Why were Jalen Ramsey and Robbie Gould arguing? Rams CB, 49ers kicker exchange words in NFC title game

It’s not often that kickers are involved in arguments on the field with an opponent and have to be separated by a teammate. But then again, it’s also not often that a kicker has done what Robbie Gould has in the postseason.

Gould is a perfect 21 for 21 on field goal attempts in his playoff career, an NFL record. But that 21st field goal got Gould into some trouble. He nailed a 38-yarder as time expired in the first half to give the Niners a 10-7 lead in the NFC championship game Sunday.

With Inglewood not being Vegas, 21 wasn’t such a lucky number for Gould, because after the kick, he and Rams All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey got into a heated exchange and had to be separated by officials and players.

During the San Francisco 49ers’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, a key moment occurred in the fourth quarter when 49ers defensive back Jaquiski Tartt dropped a potential interception.

After the game, Tartt took to Twitter and accepted blame for failing to make a play that would’ve led to a huge shift in momentum:

Ky. Wesleyan men’s basketball falls at home to Walsh

OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) – The Kentucky Wesleyan College men’s basketball team made a furious comeback on Saturday afternoon only to see their effort fall in the final 30 seconds. The Panthers dropped a dramatic 63-60 contest against Walsh University at the historic Owensboro Sportscenter.

The first 20 minutes was a bruising affair where the Cavilers (13-5, 9-3 GMAC) took a 31-17 lead. The Cavs lead multiplied in the second half, leading by as many 21 points after scoring the first seven points of the half.

The Panthers’ (10-12, 5-8 GMAC) deficit remained 13 points (52-39) with 10 minutes left in the game. A quick two by JoMel Boyd followed by a Walsh turnover led to a three from Jordan Roland, bringing Wesleyan within eight a minute later.

Wyatt Battaile then connected on a three at the seven-minute mark to bring the Panthers to within five (52-47). The Cavs immediately

Who is the Bengals’ backup quarterback? Cincinnati’s QB depth chart behind Joe Burrow

From “Jackpot Joey” to “Brandon Backup?” That’s a situation the Bengals would like to avoid.

In the unfortunate event that Joe Burrow won’t be able to finish a game during the 2022 NFL playoffs, then Cincinnati will turn to backup quarterback Brandon Allen (once again) in a pinch.

It won’t be the first time that Allen would get the call: In 2020, he started five games in place of an injured Burrow, who suffered an unfortunate knee injury that ended his season prematurely. In 2021, Allen started a game while Burrow nursed another knee injury to close out the season.

With the Bengals on the doorstep of their first Super Bowl appearance since 1988, here’s how their quarterback situation works out behind Joe Burrow:

Who is the Bengals’ backup quarterback?

Currently sitting as QB2 on the Bengals depth chart is Brandon Allen.

Allen was drafted by the Jaguars in 2016,
