The Los Angeles Rams have a big problem at SoFi Stadium because the home field never feels like it’s cheering for the home team. Rams home games, more often than not, have all been dominated by fans of the away team.
It’s a sad reality for a team that is coming off a Super Bowl victory just a few months ago.
Unfortunately, the Rams fan base couldn’t even take over in their own stadium as Bills Mafia were louder than them. It felt like the defending champions were playing in Buffalo. It got so bad that Matthew Stafford and the team had to use a “silent count”.
“We had prepared for it, we prepared to be on the silent count at home again,” said Stafford, “but it wasn’t something that we haven’t done before.
The franchise has yet to fully recoup fan support after its 20-year run in St. Louis.
The Chargers are the other team that also has to deal with this problem, but this was also the case when they played in San Diego.
With football being away from Los Angeles for so long, much of the population is either Raiders or even Cowboys fans.
The Rams started off their title defense is terrible fashion as the Bills came in and dominated them all game long.
Stafford threw three interceptions en route to a 31-10 season-opening loss to the Bills on Thursday night.
The Rams will welcome the Atlanta Falcons for another home game in Week 2.
