The Los Angeles Rams were forced to make some changes to quarterback Jared Goff's helmet due to the crowd noise inside the Superdome.

Goff and his Rams' teammates appeared to be having hearing problems from the start of the NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints.

The Rams' offense has since gotten going a bit, but Sean McVay's vaunted unit was really shaky at the start of the game, and the crowd noise deserved at least partial credit for that.

The Rams appeared to come up with a simple solution for Goff's hearing problems. Los Angeles' equipment staff appeared to just tape the earholes in Goff's helmet shut. "Jared Goff now with tape covering the ear holes on his helmet."

Will the tape end up doing anything? We'll see..

The Saints are currently leading the Rams, 13-10, early in the third quarter of the NFC Championship Game.

The winner of this afternoon's game will advance to the Super Bowl, where either the New England Patriots or the Kansas City Chiefs will await.

The Chiefs-Patriots AFC Championship Game is set to kick off at 6:40 p.m. E.T. on CBS. You can bet on the Chiefs' crowd being as loud as possible for that one, too.
