The Los Angeles Rams 2024 schedule is actually one that isn't too tough, no matter how you slice it. Let's dive into their strength of schedule. Here is a handy chart on the NFL strength of schedules for 2024. They are ranked from hardest to easiest based on the 2023 winning percentages of opponents:

Fortunately, the Rams sit right in the middle of the NFL with a .505 strength of schedule. That means their opponents in 2023 combined for a 146-143 record , which is just barely above .500. If you want to think of it this way, that means the Rams are facing an 8.59-win team every week of their 2024 NFL Season.

So it's nothing too crazy by any means. Within the NFC West, the Rams schedule is tied for the hardest with the San Francisco 49ers. The Cardinals and Seahawks both have a .488 strength of schedule for the 2024 NFL Season, so their slates aren't much easier. In the NFC, the Rams have the 11th-easiest, or, if we flip that around, it's the 5th-hardest schedule in the conference.

But if you think about it, the Rams may be the 5th-best team in the NFC, so in a way, it should all balance itself out. It's not a ridiculously challenging schedule by any means. The Rams do not have absurdly difficult QB matchups, so the defense should be able to find their footing early in 2024 and keep it.

Matthew Stafford can hopefully continue to ride the hot-streak he rode to end the 2023 NFL Season, and with the Rams upgrading on offense, this team could be quite deadly. With an elite, Super Bowl-winning coaching staff and QB, the Los Angeles Rams are in line for a successful 2024 NFL Season. How successful though, is going to depend on quite a bit, but Matthew Stafford could be that deciding factor.
