The city of Los Angeles is on fire in October after the L.A. Dodgers brought home their first World Series title since 1988 on Tuesday, and the Lakers brought home the championship for the first time since 2010 some two weeks ago.
Rams quarterback Jared Goff is optimistic of carrying on L.A.’s recent run of title glory.
“These two teams have done it and now it’s our turn,” the Rams quarterback said. “It’s something that we’d like to do.”
Rams currently boast a 5-2 record on the year.
“It’s something that’s really exciting for the city right now,” Goff told reporters on Tuesday of both the Lakers and Dodgers’ recent championships. “It’d be good to make that a little three-peat with us involved there. It’s definitely something that we’re conscious of, absolutely.”
“We’ve got all the pieces. We’re winning games. We are playing well, on offense, defense, special teams,” Goff said. “We always believe in ourselves and we’ve been there once with a lot of the same people. We know how to get there. We’ve just got to finish it off and hopefully this is the year.”
The Rams have never won a Super Bowl while residing in Los Angeles, claiming the franchise’s lone title in 1999 while in St. Louis.
This isn’t the first time in the history of the city that the Lakers and Dodgers have won a championship in the same year as it happened back in 1988 when Magic Johnson and Orel Hershiser helped their respective clubs to a title.
That same year, the Rams made the playoffs thanks to a 10-6 record but were eventually booted from the postseason by the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild-Card round.
