Even after bringing the Super Bowl to Los Angeles, the Rams can’t get Los Angeles fans to their stadium, at least not in sufficient numbers.
Once again, the Rams had to deal with the crowd noise in their building on Thursday night against the Bills.
Was it a factor for your quarterback Matthew Stafford?
“No, we prepared for it,” Stafford told reporters after the match. “We were ready to be at the cost of silence at home again, but that was not something we hadn’t done before.”
It happened in the last regular season game played at SoFi Stadium. As Stafford’s wife, Kelly, said after the Week 18 game that allowed the 49er to slip into the playoffs in 2021, “I haven’t seen so many opposing fans at a game, and we’ve come from Detroit. Matthew was in a silent state, and Jimmy Garoppolo wasn’t. . . . It was crazy. Again, I’ve never seen anything like that, but it made it very difficult for us, because I guess we didn’t expect to be in silence.”
They may see it again at future home games this year, especially with the Cowboys, 49ers and Raiders on the agenda. If nothing else, it would be best to prepare the rams for the Eight Road Games in 2022.
