We're one half down in the NFC Championship Game. Two quarters remain until one of the participants for Super Bowl LIII is decided.

The New Orleans Saints jumped out to a 13-0 lead over the Los Angeles Rams, and it looked like we might be headed toward a blowout. Drew Brees hit Garrett Griffin for a touchdown after Will Lutz kicked a pair of field goals.

However, the Rams have silenced a raucous crowd some with 10 unanswered points. A field goal settled things down for the visitors, and running back Todd Gurley's six-yard touchdown scamper with 23 seconds left in the first half cut the lead to 13-10.

Los Angeles gets the ball to start the third quarter as well, so they will have an opportunity to tie or take the lead.

ESPN has released its latest prediction for the second half. The Saints are still favored.

Currently, New Orleans has a 65.6 percent win probability.

ESPN win probability for Saints-Rams.

You can watch the second half of Rams-Saints coming up momentarily on FOX.

The winner will move on to the Super Bowl to play either the New England Patriots or Kansas City Chiefs in two weeks in Atlanta.
