The saga of the LA Rams playing poorly when the team is wearing the wrong uniform got another uncanny boost when the LA Rams donned their Classic White jersey and Royal Blue pants to face the San Francisco 49ers. It was only the second time for the LA Rams to do so. The previous occasion resulted in a Monday Night Football loss to the 49ers by a disappointing score of 31-10.

The second time for the White/Blue combination was in Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. This time, the score was an equally disappointing 24-9.

Is there something to this Rams fashion connection? Can you rely upon the garments that the team wears to predict the team’s success? If that’s so, then the LA Rams are going to struggle this season. The Ram’s greatest frequency of success has come on the occasion of wearing their Bone White color. Unfortunately, fans have never warmed up to that dirty-white tint, and the team has responded by relegating that color to only a couple of games this season.

Curiously, those two Bone White jersey games are the only two wins of the season for the Rams so far.

Royal / Sol       2-2
Royal / Bone   3-0
Royal / Royal   0-3
Bone / Royal   1-1
Bone / Sol       0-1

Totals             11 – 7

Last season, Bone White colored uniforms continued to outpace non-Bone White colored uniforms, but only ever so slightly.. Bone was worn to a record of 8-2. Non-Bone unforms resulted in a record of 8-3. Last year, the Rams introduced the new Throwback Classic White, a color that was quite popular with fans but only mustered a record of 2-2 during the 2021 NFL season

That pretty much sums up how well the Rams’ uniforms performed over the past two seasons.

  18.   18             at Seahawks     White

The uniform of choice is the Throwback Classic White Jersey and the Sol Pants.  For a complete breakdown of this combination, let’s revisit the Rams 2021 schedule in that inform:

Week 1: vs Chicago White/Sol                   W 34-13
Week 9: vs. Tennessee White/Sol             L  28-16
Super Bowl LVI: @ Cincinnati White/Sol W 23-20
Week 1: vs Bills  White/Sol                           L  10-31
Week 5: vs Cowboys White/Sol                  ??

If the pattern continues, the Rams should be the victors in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys. Will the pattern continue? Well, let’s hope so. The LA Rams are in a much better position at 3-2 than at 2-3. Hopefully, the Rams uniforms will help the team ensure a win.
