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.

Robbie Gould sends 49ers to NFC Championship Game

Former Penn State kicker Robbie Gould is one game away from playing in the Super Bowl. The 15-year NFL veteran helped the San Francisco 49ers punch their ticket to the NFC Championship Game on Saturday night with a game-winning field goal from 45 yards to upset the No. 1 seed Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field.

The sequence of events that led to Gould getting a chance for a game-winning field goal could not have been scripted. In a defensive battle highlighted by special teams plays, the 49ers tied the game at 10-10 with just under five minutes to play in the game when they blocked a Packers punt deep in the Green Bay end and made a short return for a touchdown. After the Green Bay offense got the ball back on the ensuing kickoff, the San Francisco defense forced a three-and-out aided by an illegal motion penalty on

More than one month into the NFL offseason, and the No. 1 topic of discussion remains the future of Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.

The standoff between Watson and the Texans remains ongoing, as the team hasn’t really shown any signs it is willing to trade the franchise signal caller. Nevertheless, multiple teams are showing interest in acquiring the 25-year-old star.

One team that has been linked to Watson quite a bit this offseason is the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers signed Teddy Bridgewater to a multi-year deal last year, but aren’t wholly committed to him being their quarterback of the future, particularly if they can replace him with Watson.

On SportsCenter this morning, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that the Panthers are very interested in Watson, and that interest might be mutual.

“The Carolina Panthers, they are inclined to big-game hunt for

Ryan Clark has the ultimate take on the miserable NFC East

ESPN analyst Ryan Clark had “SportsCenter” hosts Hannah Storm and Jay Harris cracking up Monday while breaking down the snails-pace race in the NFC East.

The former Giants safety doesn’t know who will win the division – currently led by the Giants at 4-7 – but Clark clearly doesn’t believe any of the four teams are any good.

“Shoot, you got a take, Jay? I think they all suck, that’s my take,” Clark replied when Harris asked him for his take after Week 12. “They all stink. It’s freaking…it’s confusing to me, right, because every week you’re asked the question, ‘Who is gonna win the NFC East?’ And I’m like, ‘The hell if I know.’ I just don’t.”

The Giants have won three straight games following a 1-7 start, leaving them ahead of the Washington Football Team (also 4-7) after winning both
