The Los Angeles Rams are allowing fans to vote for two games to wear the throwback jerseys during the 2017 season.
Earlier this week, the Los Angeles Rams allowed fans to take part in a vote to help determine the two games in which the team would wear their throwback jerseys for the 2017 season. After providing four games to choose from, the fans have spoken, and determined one of the two games they want to see the Rams rocking the throwbacks in was the regular-season finale on December 31 against the San Francisco 49ers.
As cool as it would have been to see Los Angeles wear these uniforms against a team like the Seattle Seahawks or the Indianapolis Colts on opening weekend, seeing the team kick it back for the final game of the 2017 season on New Year’s Eve could bring plenty of excitement. The Rams and 49ers may seem like long shots to win the division at this point in the offseason, but after seeing all of the key changes made by both sides over the last few months between the coaching staff and players, these two teams could surprise a lot of people in the NFC.
It may seem ridiculous to think about, but crazier things have happened in the NFL when it comes to pretenders emerging out of nowhere to be contenders, and it will be interesting to see how the 2017 season plays out for both parties. While Los Angeles made a bold decision to make Sean McVay the youngest head coach in NFL history, San Francisco felt confident enough in rewarding Kyle Shanahan his first gig as a head coach after all of the success he had last year with the Atlanta Falcons.
Give the NFL credit for focusing on division rivals facing one another during the final week of the regular season, as only time will tell when it comes to how meaningful this NFC West matchup ends up being between the Rams and 49ers. As for the second game Los Angeles will wear their throwbacks for, fans can simply participate by checking out the team site along with their social media accounts.
