Wild card round player props: Rams vs. Lions

In Week 18, the Rams sat their starters as they had already secured a playoff spot, while the Lions played them to compete for the No. 2 seed in the event of a Dallas Cowboys loss. The Cowboys won, so the Lions are the No. 3 seed. The Rams played wide receiver Puka Nacua long enough for him to break the rookie receiving record. He finished the day with four receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown. Los Angeles finished the year with a 10-7 record. 

The Lions notched a 30-20 win in Week 18, defeating the Minnesota Vikings at home. Quarterback Jared Goff had 320 passing yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown had seven receptions for 144 yards and a TD.
