The defending Super Bowl champions are back in action live on Sky Sports this Sunday, with the Los Angeles Rams facing off against their big NFC West rivals, the San Francisco 49ers - in a must-win game already for both sides.
The Week Eight games to be shown live on Sky Sports NFL have been announced, with the matchup between the Rams (3-3) and the 49ers (3-4) a repeat of last season's NFC Championship Game, which the Rams won on their way to lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
