Sunday afternoon's NFC Championship game rematch in Los Angeles between the Rams and New Orleans Saints is the most anticipated Week 2 matchup in the NFL.

After the controversy surrounding last January's game, the league is hoping for a clean contest, void of officiating controversy, with an entertaining on-field product.

New Orleans is just hoping for a win, one way or another.

Both the Saints and the Rams released their first injury/practice report of the week today, with a number of key players sitting out due to injury.

On a positive note, starting linebacker Alex Anzalone (pictured), who missed some practice last week due to a shoulder injury but still played on Monday, is not listed on today's report, meaning he's likely full recovered.
