The LA Rams play just one or two more games. Win in the NFC Championship Game, and they advance to Super Bowl LVI. Lose, and the team will have a lot of work to do to retain or replace the talent that got them this far. But amidst those questions about the outcome of the game, one question rises above all others:

What uniform will the LA Rams be wearing?

Do the clothes truly make the man? Well in the world of professional competitive sports, rituals, superstitions, and luck sometimes plays a larger part in the preparation for a big game than we care to admit. And yet, with all of the talk of controlling that which you can control, there is that fringe of ritualizing what we do before a big game to push the boundaries of what we control

The LA Rams uniforms, color palette, and logo have been the focus for the past two seasons. Is there anything to it? The team seems to think so. With so many palette combinations, the Rams have settled on Royal Blue Jerseys and Sol Yellow Pants for the post-season. (I checked it on the Rams app).

For a recap, here are the games played throughout the 2021 NFL Season, with the uniform combinations worn for those games:

So far, the LA Rams have played three games in the Royal Jersey/Sol pants combination. The first time this year was the win on the road against the New York Giants.  The Rams have gone exclusively with the Royal/Sol combination through the playoff, and for good reason. The Rams have advanced to the NFC Championship Game

If the Rams win, will they play in the Super Bowl in Royal/Sol as well? That’s hard to say, but it would not surprise me in the least. After all, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Winning in Royal/Sol seems to be something that is not broken.
