When was the last time the Rams went to a Super Bowl? The story of Los Angeles’ big game appearances

The Rams are again capable of competing for a Super Bowl.

It’s only three years since Los Angeles last appeared in the Super Bowl, and much of the team remains the same. Sean McVay is still the head coach. Cooper Kupp continues to establish itself as one of, if not the best receiver in the NFL. Aaron Donald remains a problem for opposing offensive lines.

But now Los Angeles has Matthew Stafford, who has turned the passing attack into one of the league’s best, as the Rams are heading into their NFC Championship match with the fifth most passing yards in the league (4,642). To return to the Super Bowl, they must first take a six-game losing streak to the NFC West rival 49ers to claim the conference championship.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Rams’ Super Bowl history as they prepare to face the 49ers in hopes of once again becoming the NFC’s Super Bowl representative.

Rams Super Bowl history

When was the last time the Rams went to a Super Bowl?

You do not have to flip too far back in the history books to find the last time the Rams were in the Super Bowl.

After the 2018 season, McVay’s second at the helm of the team, the Rams reached Super Bowl 53, where they met the Patriots. In what is to this day still the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history with only 13-3, the Patriots pulled the win and officially claimed title victories against both St. The Louis and Los Angeles iterations of The Rams.

The Rams have only once before 2019 been to the Super Bowl as a Los Angeles-based team. It came back in 1980 when Terry Bradshaw and the Steelers won 31-19. The Rams brought a title to St. Louis. Louis in 2000 under Kurt Warner and Marshall Faulk, but lost two years later to New England in the first Tom Brady-Bill Belichick title.

Super Bowl 24 January 20, 1980 Steelers Steelers 31, Rams 19 Terry Bradshaw
Super Bowl 34 January 30, 2000 Titans Rams 23, Titans 16 Kurt Warner
Super Bowl 36 February 3, 2002 Patriots Patriots 20, Rams 17 Tom Brady
Super Bowl 53 February 3, 2019 Patriots Patriots 13, Rams 3 Julian Edelman

How many Super Bowls have the Rams won?

The Rams have only won one title in four trips to the Super Bowl. Back on January 30, 2000, St. Louis Tennessee out despite Titans running back Eddie George scoring touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters to equalize as Warner hit Isaac Bruce for a clear 73-yard shot. Rams up 23-16 with 1:54 left.

Since then, the Rams have been thwarted twice by the Patriots, first in 2002 and then again in 2019.

How many franchises have won Super Bowls for different cities?

Only one other franchise has brought the Lombardi Trophy home to two different cities: the Colts.

The Baltimore Colts lost Super Bowl 3 to the Jets, but won Super Bowl 5 against the Cowboys. The Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and did not reappear in the Super Bowl until Peyton Manning helped the team win Super Bowl 41 against the Bears.

Should the Rams win the title this year, they would then have brought a trophy to both St. Louis and Los Angeles.
