The Los Angeles Rams have called three different cities (and one city twice) home over the course of their 81-year history.
In 1937 they were birthed as the Cleveland Rams, where they played until 1945. In 1946, they were relocated to Los Angeles, where the league’s first full-time scouting staff was hired under owner Dan Reeves. The Rams would continue to call LA home until 1995 when they would relocate to St. Louis.
In St. Louis, the Rams claimed the franchise’s only Super Bowl in 1999, with a collection of future Hall of Famers and offensive stars including: QB Kurt Warner, RB Marshall Faulk, and WRs Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt.
The 2016 season saw the Rams relocate once again, this time coming back to the City of Angels. A new page was turned with the drafting of QB Jared Goff first-overall to be the face of the franchise. In 2017, the Rams hired the league’s youngest-ever head coach in Sean McVay, who was only 30 years old.
Goff took over the offense full-time and with the help of RB Todd Gurley, who led the NFL in yards from scrimmage and rushing TDs, McVay’s offense was the highest-scoring unit in the league. The Rams captured the NFC West title with an 11-5 record, but fell to the Atlanta Falcons 26-13 in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.
The 2018 season marked a year of modest improvement, as the Rams went 13-3, won another NFC West title, and went all the way to the Super Bowl, where they fell to the ageless Tom Brady and an inspired New England defense.
With almost all of their key pieces back and veterans Clay Matthews and Eric Weddle added to the defense, the Rams are poised to be the class of the NFC West yet again and compete with the likes of New Orleans, Philadelphia, and whomever makes it out of the gruelling NFC North for a spot in Super Bowl 54.
