The LA Rams and the Rams fans have a long-standing tradition of tracking the game-day uniforms with the game-day performance. Of course, we’ve been caught up in the fever as well, and have made it a point to track the uniform combination for the past two NFL seasons.

I won’t rehash the LA Rams’ 33 (plus postseason) game schedule of the past uniform combinations and subsequent outcomes of those past contests. But we do have a complete uniform picture for the LA Rams home opener. And that would be:

So here we are, Week 1 and we have our first full uniform. The Rams will go with their throwback uniforms, with a classic white jersey and sol yellow pants. If you want to know how well the Rams have performed in that combination, the answer is two wins and one loss.

  • Week       Opponent           Jersey       Pants    Outcome
  1.      1             Bills                    White        Sol
  2.      2             Falcons              Bone
  3.      3             at Cardinals      Bone
  4.      4             at 49ers            White
  5.      5             Cowboys           White
  6.      6             Panthers           Royal
  7.      7             BYE
  8.      8             49ers                 Royal
  9.      9             at Buccaneers Royal
  10.   10             Cardinals           Royal
  11.   11             at Saints            White
  12.   12             at Chiefs            White
  13.   13             Seahawks         Royal
  14.   14             Raiders              Royal
  15.   15             at Packers         White
  16.   16             Broncos             Royal
  17.   17             at Chargers       White
  18.   18             at Seahawks     White

The Rams open with the same uniform combination worn in Super Bowl LVI, a fan favorite, thanks to the outcome of that NFL Championship Game. The Rams opened the 2021 NFL season with the same uniform combination, resulting in a home victory against the Chicago Bears by a score of 34-13.

The Rams would don the uniform again in Week 9 when the team would host the Tennessee Titans,  a game that the Rams lost by a disappointing score of 28-16. The Rams opted for the uniform once more for Super Bowl LVI and won that game by a score of 27-24.

In three games, the Rams have scored 77 points in the white/yellow combination while allowing 65 points.  Will the team average hold for Week 1 this year?  We’ll know the answer to that one in less than 12 hours.
