Some Rams History

February 2, 2019

The Rams will be playing for the NFL crown for the ninth time, (6th as the L.A. Rams) in tomorrow’s Super Bowl, in Atlanta.

As the St. Louis entry, in just their 5th season there, the Rams won a Super Bowl game in Atlanta, after the 1999 season.

They played in one other Supe as the St. Louis Rams, losing to the New England Patriots, of course the Rams’ opponents tomorrow, in the 2001 Super Bowl.

This will be the Rams first Super Bowl appearance, in their second incarnation as the Los Angeles Rams. It comes the fastest of any of their 4 incarnations, in only their third season back in L.A.

In their first L.A. stint, the Rams played for the NFL crown, losing to the Philadelphia Eagles’ repeat 1949 NFL champions, in just their 4th season in Los Angeles.

They moved to Los Angeles from Cleveland after winning the NFL crown in their last game as the Cleveland Rams in 1945. The team played 8 seasons in Cleveland and only in 1945, did they make the title game.

 

The Rams played in an American Football League in 1936 and suspended operations for the 1943 season. They made the title tilt in their third, fourth, fifth and eighth seasons in their 4 incarnations, winning 3 crowns.
