LA is home to Rams now
In 2019, the LA Rams finished a disappointing 9-7. But the Dallas Cowboys finished an even more disappointing 8-8. Both teams missed the playoffs. While the LA Rams restructured the coaching staff around three new coordinators, the Cowboys reworked the team’s entire coaching staff. Yet somehow, the NFL pundits see the Cowboys as a favorite to win in the NFC overall, and return to the playoffs easily, while the Rams are projected to end up in the NFC West basement.
Somehow the Cowboys are favorites to win the home opener against the LA Rams. In fact, as many have lined up to tout the incredible offseason and draft held by the Dallas Cowboys, the same authors are lining up perceptions to support the narrative that the LA Rams will disappoint this year.
That could very likely play into the LA Rams hands this year. They have been disregarded as a player in the 2020 NFL playoffs, despite always having a winning record under head coach Sean McVay. Now that the Dallas Cowboys will be enjoying summer training camp in Texas, the LA Rams have a real chance to make inroads towards winning over more fans in the community. All of that is vital for the long-term success of the Rams. Nothing brings out the passion of fans than an exciting win as an underdog role.
This is not a game where the LA Rams will gladly roll over and play dead. In fact, it is not a game where the Rams come out firing blanks. That season opener is critical for the Rams hopes to succeed in 2020. With this new development, the Cowboys will truly be a road team for the opener. Perhaps this will begin a new chapter for Los Angeles Rams?
