Born in Cleveland, but raised in Los Angeles with a stint living in St Louis, the Rams have moved a lot throughout their time in the NFL ever since they started in 1936. The Rams first 10 years were based in the city of Cleveland, with not much success, only winning one NFL title (1945) defeating the Washington Redskins (now known as the Washington Commanders).
A few years prior to their NFL championship win, the Rams did not participate in the 1943 season due to the lack of players caused by World War II. After they clinched the 1945 Championship they became the first franchise to play the following season in a different city, after Dan Reeves who bought the team in 1941, wanted to relocate the team to Los Angeles.
The first few years in LA caused the Rams to delve deep into their pockets as they suffered some financial losses due to the presence of another LA american football team, the LA Dons who played in the All America Football Conference (AAFC), but the league folded three years later in 1949.
Ultimately the Rams had most of their success when they were based in LA, especially in the 50s when they had future Hall of Farmers, Bob Waterfield, Norm Van Brocklin, Elroy “Crazylegs” Hirsch and Tom Fears helped clinch the Rams to four NFL Western division championships in seven years, as well as claiming their second NFL Championship in 1951.
However, by the next decade the Rams found themselves mostly in the bottom two of the Western Conference (they were seven teams in the Western Conference) throughout the 60s, and only made the playoffs twice in 1967 and 1969 but fell in the conference championship games.
The 70s could be seen as one of the most successful periods the Rams have had as they won five consecutive NFC Western titles from 1973-1977 under coach Chuck Knox, as well as being NFC Champions in 1979 under coach Ray Malavasi as he led them to their first Super Bowl appearance, but couldn’t overcome a strong Pittsburgh Steelers team in Super Bowl XIV.
The Rams were prominent features in the postseason throughout the 80s, only missing out on three occasions, with the closest the Rams went to a Super Bowl was in 1985 and 1989 when they crashed out in the conference championship games to Chicago and San Francisco, respectively.
By 1995 the Rams played their last game in Los Angeles (until they moved back in 2016) as owner Georgia Frontiere moved the franchise to St Louis for financial reasons. The Rams only managed one playoff appearance in the 90s, and it will forever be in the history books of the Rams faithful.
The 1999 season was the Rams fourth year in their new home at St Louis, and they wasted no time settling in as they finished on top of the NFC West division with a 13-3 record, which meant they made it directly to the divisional round in the playoffs.
They won the divisional playoff over Minnesota by 12 points, and claimed the NFC Championship over Tampa Bay by four points en route to their second Super Bowl appearance as they faced Tennessee in Super Bowl XXXIV.
Unlike in 1979, the Rams held their nerve and defeated the Titans 23-16, to clinch their first Vince Lombardi trophy, as quarterback Kurt Warner was named MVP. The Rams used their Super Bowl victory as a foundation, as two years later they appeared in the NFL’s big dance for the second time in three years.
Unfortunately the Rams fell agonisingly short in Super Bowl XXXVI, going down to the New England Patriots by three points. Although they made the playoffs the next two years, the rest of the St Louis stay didn’t spark joy as they couldn’t reach the postseason.
The St Louis Rams suffered their worst seasons in 2008 and 2009 where they won a combined three games throughout the two seasons, which included a one win season in 2009. By 2016 the Rams moved back to Los Angeles as owner Stan Kroenke wanted the team to play in a billion dollar stadium.
The move didn’t seem to affect them on the field as by 2018 they finished first in the NFC West with a 13-3 record, defeated Dallas in the NFC divisional playoffs, claimed victory over New Orleans in overtime as they made their third Super Bowl appearance.
However, the New England Patriots were too strong in Super Bowl LIII, as they clinched the Vince Lombardi trophy by 10 points. The Rams weren’t able to back up their efforts from the previous season as they finished third in the NFC West with a 7-9 record in 2019.
The Los Angeles Rams finished the 2020 NFL regular season with a 10-6 record and in second place in the talented NFC West. The Rams boasted the No. 1 ranked defense in the league throughout the year, as was evident in their Wild Card round playoff victory over Seattle. Los Angeles sacked Russell Wilson on five occasions and held the Seahawks to just 278 total offensive yard.
A battered and bruised Rams defense did their best to compete against the No. 1 seed Green Bay Packers the following week, however the 2020 MVP Aaron Rodgers steered Green Bay to a 32-18 win at home.
For his efforts in the 2020-21 season, defensive tackle Aaron Donald was named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year for the third time in his career.
In the 2021 offseason, Rams defensive coordinator and architect behind their No. 1 ranked defense, Brandon Stanley, was appointed as the new head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers.
Offensively the Rams also underwent some drastic changes, trading two first-round picks, a third-round pick and Jared Goff to Detroit Lions in exchange for quarterback Matthew Stafford. Stafford started all 16 games, finishing with 4,084 passing yards, 26 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
The big risk paid off for the Los Angeles Rams as trading for Matthew Stafford led to them winning the Super Bowl in 2021. Led by Stafford and Cooper Kupp the Rams were the class of the NFL this season.
If you are a fan of the Los Angeles Rams, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Los Angeles Rams have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2023?
Our experts will provide an analysis on the Rams’ chances closer to the start of the 2022-23 season. In the meantime, you can check out our thoughts on the team before the 2021-22 season started:
A few years removed from their Super Bowl appearance the LA Rams look like a completely different team. What looked to be a strong roster going into the future has turned into a team that lacked direction and had traded away almost all of their future first round picks. But now with the addition of Matthew Stafford, are the Rams finally poised to return to the big stage?
Ever since moving to Los Angeles, the Rams have been wheeling and dealing making big trades to acquire Brandin Cooks, Jared Goff, Jalen Ramsey and now they have gone and acquired Matthew Stafford. Stafford will be coached by Sean McVay, who many have deemed to be an offensive mastermind.
McVay became head coach of the Rams at 30 years old, making him the youngest head coach in NFL history. McVay comes from the Shanahan coaching tree which is full of great offensive minds. In fact, McVay made Jared Goff, who by all accounts is an average quarterback, look like a superstar, until the league figured out McVay’s zone run scheme.
McVay has been good as a head coach with a 43-21 record and has taken the Rams to the playoffs 3 out of his 4 seasons as head coach. Despite being limited by Goff’s arm, McVay still led the Rams last season to a 10-6 record and into the Divisional round of the playoffs.
The front office led by GM Les Snead has made a few good moves this offseason, aside from the monster Goff for Stafford trade. Snead picked up speedster Desean Jackson, ground and pound back Sony Michel and re-signed the fast blitzing Leonard Floyd. The Rams have gotten a lot better this offseason.
Last season, the Rams offense looked like a shell of its former glory. There were 2 key issues, the Rams poor running game without a definitive number 1 back, and Jared Goff’s poor arm. Goff was just bad last season missing easy throws, and failing to adjust to the defenses playing against him. Now with Goff gone and Stafford in, the Rams should look completely different.
Matthew Stafford is the key to the Rams offense. Stafford is one of the most talented quarterbacks in the league. Stafford has been let down by Detroit throughout his career but has top 5 arm talent in the league. The Rams have put some decent pieces around him and have paired him with one of the best offensive young minds in the league.
This should lead to the return of the greatest show on turf. Although the Rams offensive line is questionable, the rest of the offense looks decent. Every skill position has been improved this offseason. The running back room got a boost from former Patriot Sony Michel entering as well as Cam Akers returning from injury.
The receiving group is now made up of Cooper Kupp, Desean Jackson and Robert Woods. This is a top 15 group in the league in our opinion and they should look even better next season with Stafford throwing them the rock. The Rams have all the pieces for a potent offense so long as the offensive line can hold and give Stafford time to sling the rock and for the backs to run the ball.
Behind the glitz and glamour of the Rams brand new offense is their incredible defense. The group is led by the best defender in recent memory, Aaron Donald, as well as trash talking lockdown corner Jalen Ramsey. The Rams had the best pass defense in the league last year and the third best run defense. They have made moves to keep their best players and should repeat the same level of play next year.
The Rams front 7 remains an extremely scary sight with the resigning of Leonard Floyd and Aaron Donald returning. The front line has gotten slightly worse as they’ve lost the aging Michael Brockers and Morgan Fox but no one has found a way to stop Aaron Donald so the Rams defensive line should still create havoc, especially with Donald gobbling up double teams. The Rams have added younger players to fill the void of the vets they’ve lost on the line, but the results of that are yet to be seen.
In the secondary, Jalen Ramsey remains the best lockdown corner in the NFL, while Darius Williams is a great second corner. In fact Williams posted Pro Football Focus’ 9th best coverage grade last season. The safety group also looks good with Taylor Rapp and the sensational Jordan Fuller. The Rams pass defense should remain as one of the best, if not the best unit in the league. Not only that, when combined with their formidable front 7, the Rams should be the best defense in the NFL next season.
The 2021-22 season is over and we take a look back at the Los Angeles Rams betting history for the most recent season. We will provide more information in relation to the new 2022-23 season once information becomes available. In the meantime, have a look at the betting and odds information for the Rams before the start of the previous season:
The Los Angeles Rams finished 2020 with a 10-6 regular season record. The Rams also boasted a 9-7 record against the spread.
When looking at total points, the Rams had the most games that finished Under their total points line in the entire NFL. 12 of the Rams 16 regular season games finished Under the total points line, while just four finished Over.
This can be attributed to having the No. 1 ranked defense in the league (limiting their opponents ability to score), while also often struggling on offense due to lacking continuity at quarterback.
Having since signed Matthew Stafford at quarterback for the 2021 season, Los Angeles have opened with odds of +1400 to win Super Bowl LVI.
