Wild Card Weekend: Atlanta Falcons vs. Los Angeles Rams live on NBC


Todd Gurley and the Los Angeles Rams play host to Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC wild card game on Saturday, Jan. 6, in NBC primetime.

The Rams, under first-year head coach Sean McVay, have bounced back from last season’s 4-12 record to finish the regular season as NFC West champions (11-5). Led by running back Todd Gurley, former first-overall draft pick Jared Goff and defensive lineman Aaron Donald, Los Angeles is looking to win in its first playoff appearance since 2005, but it won’t be easy.

The Falcons are the most dangerous team competing in the wild card weekend and as the defending NFC champions, they are looking to force an upset at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Marshawn Lynch looks to be enjoying the retired life while overseas with American Football Without Boundaries.

Yesterday a video made the rounds of Lynch riding a camel in Egypt, but his fun didn’t stop there. Today the foundation’s official twitter account posted another short video of Lynch having some fun, though he swapped the camel for Cairo Tower.

Marshawn Lynch knows how to spend his time off: “ghost riding a camel.” Would you expect anything less from the infamous running back?

Lynch traveled to Egypt as part of an annual camp with American Football Without Barriers. AFWB was started by Breno Giacomini, Gary Barnidge, and Ahmed Awadallah with the goal to help disadvantaged youths by utilizing the game of football.

And even though they’re in Egypt on business the athletes know how to have some fun. Take a look at the video below, I promise Lynch rapping on top of a camel is every bit as hilarious as you picture it in your mind.
