How Many Super Bowls Have The Rams Won?
In the National Football League (NFL), the Super Bowl is the final game of the season and the one to determine the overall league champion. The game has taken place every year since 1967, and there have been plenty of teams to win multiple championships. One of those teams is the Los Angeles Rams, who also spent time playing in St. Louis. The Rams have won two Super Bowls throughout their history. The remainder of this piece will discuss those two championships in detail, as well as their Super Bowl defeats.
Super Bowl XXXIV (1999-2000)
Making their second appearance in the Super Bowl, the Rams, who at this point were playing in St. Louis, took home their first Super Bowl title in the first Super Bowl of the 21st century. As champions of the National Football Conference (NFC), the Rams took on the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV in Atlanta, Georgia. In a low-scoring affair, the Rams led 9-0 at halftime, and would go on to take home the Super Bowl by a final score of 23-16. Rams quarterback Kurt Warner won the game’s MVP award after throwing for 414 yards and two touchdowns while completing 24 of his 45 passes. Warner became both the first undrafted and first first-year starter to win the Super Bowl at quarterback.
Super Bowl LVI (2021-2022)
At the most recent Super Bowl, Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles, California, the Rams took home their second Super Bowl title. Playing in their hometown, as the Rams are back in Los Angeles now, the Rams took a 13-10 lead into halftime over the AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals. In a back-and-forth affair, the Rams scored a late fourth quarter touchdown to take home the Super Bowl by a final score of 23-20. Rams’ wide receiver Cooper Kupp recorded eight receptions for 92 yards and two touchdowns, earning the game’s MVP award.

At Super Bowl XVII in Pasadena, California, the Rams, who were in their first stint in Los Angeles at the time, made their first trip to the Super Bowl. After winning the NFC, the Rams met the AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers.
