LA Rams legendary bone jersey mystique starts on Sunday Night Football

The LA Rams have made their jersey options known for their 2020 16 game NFL Schedule. For the season opener on Sunday Night Football, the team will don their bone jerseys as the Rams host the Dallas Cowboys at SoFi Stadium. In spite of the home-field advantage, the Rams remain a home-field underdog for the game.

The legend of SoFi Stadium begins in the bone unform. LA Rams history will be punctuated, for good or for bad, by the decision.  While this moment in history may be lost on first or second-year players, you can bet that players who have been in the league for a few seasons note the significance.  Players like offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth, or defensive tackle Michael Brockers, understand what is at stake. What happens during Sunday Night Football will either create a legend the Rams will strive to live up to all season. Or the Rams may be trying to make up for that opener for the rest of the season.

Superstitions, rituals, and traditions

It starts with the bone jersey.  The color and style of the Rams opening game jersey should not play a part in the outcome of the game. But in the minds of many fans, and even many players, it will. Call it superstition. Call it a ritual. You can even call it a football tradition. In whatever way you categorize the decision to wear the bone jerseys, keep this in mind.  The outcome of the game will be tied forever to that uniform.

And so, it’s the bone-white that will show up in the opener. It’s the bone jersey that will take the field for the LA Rams in SoFi Stadium.  It’s the bone jersey that will find the Rams as underdogs in their own field in 2020.

Beat the odds

The LA Rams opened as 2.5 point underdogs. After the Rams fell to 3.0 underdogs, smart betting money began to show up on the LA Rams. The current odds for the game currently have the Rams as between 2.0 and 2.5 point underdogs in the game.  If you want to track odds yourself? Just try the Action APP.

While the Rams face a tough opener, the team follows up this one with two weeks on the east coast to face both the Philadelphia Eagles and then the Buffalo Bills. It is not until week three that the Rams will debut their Royal jersey and uniform.

If the Rams can emerge from the first three weeks this season with a winning schedule, they have a significant chance to have a solid season. Many have predicted that the LA Rams will open this season winless in the first three games.

if the Rams do open the season with two straight losses, the Rams bone jersey will become a rather unpopular option for the team.  Like it or not, the popularity of the Rams bone uniform hinges on the outcome of the Sunday Night Football game.
