The Los Angeles Rams is an NFL team based in the metropolitan area of Los Angeles. The team plays in the NFC West division and their home games are played at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, which they share with the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Los Angeles Rams were established in 1936 and have changed location on a number of occasions. They won a couple of NFL Championships before the merger with the AFL and have won four NFC Championships, with their sole Super Bowl victory coming in 1999. They did reach the Bowl again in 2018 but lost out to the New England Patriots in a defensive game.
Early History of the Los Angeles Rams
The team was founded in Cleveland as the Cleveland Rams and became part of the newly-created American Football League. The next season, they joined the NFL. With a shortage of players as a result of the Second World War, the Rams suspended all operations in 1943. They won an NFL Championship in 1945, the year before they moved to Los Angeles. While other NFL owners did not want this move to happen, the owner of the Rams threatened to end all ties with the NFL and forced their hand.
Move to LA
The Rams were the first NFL side to have a home in Los Angeles. They began playing at the Coliseum, a stadium dating from 1921. The team went through a good spell in the 1950s, capturing three NFL Championships. There was a bit of a lull through the 1960s, but results picked up again in the 1970s and 1980s. This included winning seven consecutive NFC West titles.
The Rams got to their first Super Bowl in 1979 after beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game. However, the Rams lost to the defending champions, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in the big game. In 1980, the Los Angeles Rams moved to the nearby Anaheim Stadium in Orange County. This move meant that the games could appear on local television.
Move to St. Louis
After a run of poor performances in the 1990s and a resulting loss in fan base the decision was taken to move out of Southern California and relocate to St. Louis. The team played as the St. Louis Rams from 1995 to 2015.
The team got to its second Super Bowl in 1999. Quarterback Kurt Warner lea the team with 41 thrown touchdowns and beat the Tennessee Titans in the big game to win the Super Bowl for the first time. They got back to the big game in 2001 but lost out to the New England Patriots.
The team returned to Los Angeles in 2016 and started to re-build under head coach Steve McVay. The team included the likes of Aaron Donald, Aqib Talib, and Todd Gurley. With young quarterback Jared Goff at the helm, the Los Angeles Rams reached the Super Bowl in 2018 after a 13-3 regular season. However, they lost to the Patriots in a defensive game of 13-3, the lowest score in the history of the Super Bowl.
Support of the Los Angeles Rams
As the Los Angeles Rams have changed location on a number of occasions over time, the fan base has also shifted over the years. Currently, they play their home games at SoFi Stadium in Anaheim which re-opened after extensive redevelopment in September 2020. It hosts the Rams and the Chargers, as well as the LA Bowl.
Over the years, there have been many great players who have worn the Los Angeles Rams blue and sun-yellow uniform.
