Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams started in 1936 in Cleveland, Ohio and originally played in the AFL. The following year the Rams joined the NFL and in 1946, they moved to Los Angeles. After many years in Southern California, the Rams moved out to St. Louis, MO. However, in 2016, the Rams moved back to Los Angeles and have made that their home base. Their history has been anything but linear!
About the Team
Rams coach Sean McVay was previously working for the Washington Redskins as an offensive coordinator from 2014-2016 before moving to the Rams. Some notable Rams players you may know include Todd Gurley, Marshall Faulk and Eric Dickerson.
Fun fact: Did you know that the Rams were the first team to ever display their logo on their helmets? The Rams have another unique "first" in NFL football, too. They were the first team to have their home games televised.
The team's first victory was a 21-3 win to the Philadelphia Eagles in 1937. In fact, the Rams have only won one Super Bowl in 2000. However, they were just in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots in 2018, but did not win.
Since this team has been in a few different states, there are many Rams fans around the world. However, one of the team's most prominent rivals is the San Francisco 49ers, as California football fans are often split between these two teams.
Rampage the Ram is the mascot of the team and he wears a jersey with a number 1 on his back. He stands over 6 feet tall! Back in 2000, the Los Angeles Rams held a contest for naming the mascot. Thousands of names were submitted and the winner who submitted Rampage won a suite box at a game for over a dozen friends, a gift card to the Rams online apparel store and a Rams jersey.
