Take a look at the official regular season schedule for the Los Angeles Rams during the 2017 season.
For months, the Los Angeles Rams knew who their opponents would be for the 2017 season, even though the dates and times were still unknown. On Thursday, the Rams released their schedule for the 2017 season, as there are plenty of key dates that standout, beginning in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.
The good news for Los Angeles is their first two games of the 2017 season will be played at home, as they will host the Washington Redskins following their home opener against the Colts. Normally, this wouldn’t seem like a big deal, but when considering head coach Sean McVay will be facing his former team this early on should provide plenty of excitement for the Rams.
Here’s a look at the full schedule courtesy of the team’s site:
McVay was heavily praised for the time he spent as offensive coordinator with the Redskins, and even though this will be his first season with the Rams, there’s plenty of pressure on the new head after the team finished with a disappointing 4-12 record in 2016. Los Angeles showed a ton of confidence by making McVay the youngest head coach in NFL history, and if he can manage to help develop Jared Goff the way he did with Kirk Cousins, the offense should be able to improve from last year’s 14 points per game.

On top of the exciting Week 2 game against the Redskins, other notable games include the Dallas Cowboys (Week 4), Seattle Seahawks (Week 5 and Week 15), and the Philadelphia Eagles (Week 14. Of course, the main reason why that Week 14 matchup against the Eagles sticks out is due to the top two picks from the 2016 NFL Draft in Goff and Carson Wentz facing one another for the first time.
