At the end of the 2015-2016 NFL season the St. Louis Rams made a big announcement: they were returning to their beloved home, the city of Los Angeles. The Rams had previously called Los Angeles home from 1946-1994. After the 1994 season in which the team went an abysmal 4-12, they packed up and moved to St. Louis, Missouri. For the past 22 years St. Louis has been their stomping ground, but now the Rams are back and the fans of the L.A. Rams have returned just as their team has. It’s as if nothing has changed.
In their first home game back in the city of Los Angeles, the Rams took on NFC West division rivals, the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks are known for their hard hitting secondary nicknamed the “Legion of Boom.” After last week’s performance in which they were shut down 28-0 by the San Francisco 49ers, the Rams were in desperate need of a game to prove that they could bounce back. The team did just that. The Rams showed that they should not be doubted as they held the Seahawks to three points for the entire game. Both offenses were struggling but the Rams offense gave their field goal kicker more opportunities, which later payed off as they went on to win the game by 6 with a score of 9-3.
After this impressive win against the Seahawks the Rams will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday September 25 at 1:05pm Pacific standard time. The game will be televised on Fox as the Rams look to go 2-1 on the season.
