Matthew Stafford will forever remain in the hearts of a large segment of Detroit Lions fans.
After 12 years toughing it out for an an organization that is not known for success, Lions fans have taken the journey with Stafford this season in Los Angeles.
For the first time in his 13-year NFL career, Stafford will lead a team to the NFC Championship Game.
"Steal somebody's soul. That's what it feels like sometimes when they're sitting there going, 'Man, we just had this great comeback.' You get to reach in there and take it from them," Stafford said postgame. "That's a whole lot of fun."
One fan was so hyped and excited during the Rams' final drive, he was filmed by his girlfriend jumping and screaming for Stafford and the Rams' offense to spike the football in order to have an opportunity to kick the game-winning field goal.
