The Rams franchise has won three NFL championships and is the only club to win titles while representing three different cities (Cleveland in 1945, Los Angeles in 1951, and St. Louis in 1999). The franchise began in 1936 as the Cleveland Rams and moved to Los Angeles after winning the league championship in 1945. After the 1994 season, the Rams left California and moved east to St. Louis, Mo. They returned to L.A. for the 2016 season and are one of four teams in the West Division of the National Football Conference.
The 1960s were defined by the Rams great defensive line of Rosey Grier, Merlin Olsen, Deacon Jones and Lamar Lundy, dubbed the Fearsome Foursome. It was this group of players who restored the on-field luster of the franchise in 1967 when the Rams reached (but lost) the conference championship under legendary coach George Allen.
Olsen and Jones were elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Others on the Rams’ list of hall of famers include Marshall Faulk, Eric Dickerson, Orlando Pace and Kurt Warner.
Forbes estimated the worth of the team in 2015 as $1.45 billion. However, after relocating back to Los Angeles, it was reported by CBS Sports that the Rams’ value shot up to $2.9 billion, placing them third in the league.

Los Angeles Rams Online Betting Tips
The glory days of Warner, Faulk and Isaac Bruce are long gone. Today, the Rams are anemic. They have not had a winning record in 14 years, when they went 12-4 in 2003. The Rams finished 2016 at 4-12, but were just 1-7 at home. They also ended the season on a seven-game losing streak. For bettors, they were 6-10 against the spread.
The offense ranked dead last in the 32-team league in 2016 as rookie Jared Goff took over behind center. The No. 1 overall draft pick threw more interceptions than touchdown passes in his seven starts — all losses. It’s a coin flip whether the 22-year-old will even have the starting job by the midway point of the season. Obviously, there’s a lot riding his performances this season.
The goods news is the Rams have a strong defense, which ranked ninth in the league last year. However, the team ranked 28th in takeaways at -11.
The Rams, under an entirely new coaching staff, are going to be a team of change. With their record in the last decade, what’s worth keeping anyways? With one of the easiest schedules in the NFL and hopefully some improvement from Goff, the Rams may better their 2016 mark.
