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:

Jaquiski ‘Quaski’ Tartt @quaski

No excuses!! I deserve all the criticism my way! Opportunity I dream of I came up short!!! Let my brothers down!! It Still won’t define me as a person/player. Only will get stronger and better… <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Believdat?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#Believdat</a>

Tartt also took responsibility for the drop during his postgame press conference (warning: contains profanity):

Cardinals’ season ends with rout by Rams

The Los Angeles Rams (13-5) advanced to the NFC playoff divisional round after they routed the Arizona Cardinals at home, 34-11, on Monday.

Cooper Kupp has been unstoppable.

The Cardinals spoke all last week about how to contain the Rams’ best wideout.

But Kupp is shredding the Cardinals secondary, and making huge gains after

Rams’ Matthew Stafford, channeling his inner Carson Wentz, throws a pair of costly INTs to Tennessee Titans

Somewhere in Central Indiana on Sunday, Carson Wentz must have yelled out, “See?! It’s not just me!”

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford made a very similar play as what Wentz did last week against the Titans, trying to spin out of a sack in the end zone and blindly throwing the ball to no receiver in particular in Sunday’s game in Los Angeles between LA and Tennessee. David Long picked off the pass and returned it to the Rams’ 2-yard line. One play later, a Ryan Tannehill touchdown pass to Geoff Swaim gave the Titans a second-quarter lead.

Last week, it was Elijah Molden. This week, it was Long.

On the next drive, Stafford gave it up again, throwing an interception to Kevin Byard who returned the ball for an easy touchdown.

Just like that, it was 14-3.

Wentz, of course, two critical interceptions last week; the one to Molden

NFL World Reacts To Matthew Stafford’s Rams Debut

Matthew Stafford warms up on the field.

Matthew Stafford warms up on the field.

Matthew Stafford’s debut with the Los Angeles Rams was a successful one.

The former Detroit Lions quarterback led his team to a win over his old divisional rival, the Chicago Bears. Stafford and the Rams crushed the Bears, 34-14, to open the season with a nice victory.

Stafford played very well, throwing for 321 yards and three touchdowns on 20 of 26 passing in the season-opening win.

Rams head coach Sean McVay was extremely impressed.

The rest of the NFL world was pretty impressed, too. Stafford playing in McVay’s offense with the Rams weapons should be pretty fun to watch moving forward.

It’s only one game, but the Rams have to be very happy with their trade for the former No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick.

Stafford and the Rams’ offense looked like a team capable of making a deep playoff run, perhaps
