The team relocated to Los Angeles after winning the National Football League Championship Game in 1945, making way for Paul Brown to found the Cleveland Browns of the All-America Football Conference. This made the franchise the only NFL championship team to play the following season in a different city after winning the title.

Before moving into the newly renovated Anaheim Stadium in Orange County, California in 1980, the club called the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California, home for its games until that year.

The Rams competed in their first Super Bowl at the conclusion of the 1979 NFL season, but they were defeated by the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 31–19 in Super Bowl XIV.
