There were millions of eyes glued to the television to watch the end of the Rams-Bucs divisional playoff game.
But, for those who couldn’t get in front of a TV during Sunday’s matinee, there were plenty of ways to listen to the game.
With just 42 seconds left in the fourth quarter of a tied game and the entire floor to play, many thought Matthew Stafford and company would play overtime.
Those people would be wrong.
Well out of field goal range, Matt Stafford connected with wide receiver Cooper Kupp on a 44-yard shot to get the ball inside the 10-yard line, setting up a game-winning field goal by Matt Gay.
Here’s how many watched and heard it on NBC.
Of course, not everyone heard Michaels’ call.
If you were in the car listening to the Westwood One national radio call with Dave Pasch and Ross Tucker on the call, that’s what it sounded like.
For those who were listening and watching on NBC Universo, the Spanish-language call of the national broadcast, the chaos inside Raymond James Stadium is perfectly captured.
The Buccaneers broadcast, led by longtime play-by-play announcer Gene Deckerhoff, wasn’t all that excited.
“What the hell are the Buccaneers doing?” Deckerhoff said as Kupp made the 44-yard catch that put the Rams within field goal range.
The road win allows the Rams to advance to the NFC Championship and face their division rival, the 49ers. The Rams will travel back to Los Angeles and prepare to host the San Francisco team for the third time this year from SoFi Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
