Earlier today the preseason schedule was released for the 2016 NFL season. The fact that the now Los Angeles Rams are actually moving to Los Angeles is becoming a reality as the team is set to open their preseason at home at the Coliseum against the Dallas Cowboys.
According to Vincent Bonsignore of the LA Daily News, Jeff Fisher seems to be excited about opening the preseason at home.
Fisher called opening at home against the Dallas Cowboys a historic year and is excited about opening the season at home and getting in front of the fans for the first time.
While the Rams won’t be in their permanent home as their stadium won’t be ready until 2019, however, playing in the Coliseum and back in LA truly will be a historic event as it will be the first time the Rams will have played in Los Angeles since they moved to St. Louis after the 1994 season.
Even though it will be just a preseason game, given that it will be the team’s first home game since 1994 in Los Angeles, it’s hard to imagine that there will still be quite a few fans in attendance when the Rams take on the Cowboys.
The Rams will take on the Cowboys on August 13th in a game that will likely be aired on ESPN.
