Falcons vs Rams


The bigger issue at hand is whether anyone in the L.A. market will care to tune into NBC at 8:15 p.m. ET on Saturday.

This is a team whose attendance was 26th in the league in 2017, although I should note that number coincides with a cap of 65,000 fans per game at the Coliseum this year.


Los Angeles last welcomed a playoff game back in 1993 when the Raiders took on the Broncos in a wild-card game. The Rams last brought postseason hope to L.A. in 1989, although it won a Super Bowl while playing in the confines of St. Louis (1999).

Come to the coast, have a few laughs, win some games and the fans will follow; or so they said. That sentiment gets its first true test this weekend with a home game against the Atlanta Falcons.

If ever there was a time to welcome fair-weather Angelenos onto the bandwagon it would be now.

With a few wins this winter, the franchise may just settle back into L.A. better than it ever has in its history. With just a few more weeks of success it may just solidify itself as the Los Angeles franchise it was always meant to be
