They defeated the Las Vegas Raiders (26 to 19) in the opening round, then defeated the Tennessee Titans (19 to 16) and Kansas City Chiefs (27 to 24) to reach the Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Rams also were the No. 4 seed in the NFC playoffs after a 12 to 5 regular season and NFC West title.

Meanwhile, the Rams have four previous Super Bowl appearances, only one of which did they win.
