The Los Angeles Rams will have a local legend performing at their first playoff appearance since 2004.

Snoop Dogg will take to the stage at the L.A. Coliseum during halftime of the Rams-Atlanta Falcons game on Saturday.

This marks the first time the Rams have made the NFL post-season since 2004, and the first time the team (formerly the St. Louis Rams) have hosted a playoff game in Southern California since 1986, when they beat the Dallas Cowboys 20-0 at Anaheim Stadium.

As part of the historic game, the Rams will feature entertainers with local ties during pregame and halftime, as well as honor Rams fans and Legends, the team announced on Friday.

While kick-off is 5:15 p.m. PT, fans are advised to be in their seats by 4:50 p.m. PT for team introductions, the National Anthem, the coin toss and the lighting of the torch.

“Pitch Perfect” actress Kelley Jakle will perform the National Anthem, while joined on the field  by 100 Rams Season Ticket Members holding a USA-shaped American Flag. The U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion Los Angeles Honor Guard will present the colors.

The Rams announced earlier this week that Hall of Fame Legends Eric Dickerson, Tom Mack and Orlando Pace will join the team captains at midfield to participate in the coin toss.

While the Rams are competing to win the right to play in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Feb. 4, their highly-anticipated L.A. Stadium in Inglewood will host Super Bowl LVI in 2022.
