It's been 19 years since the Rams saw their last Super Bowl win.
The Los Angeles Rams have a chance to book a ticket to their first Super Bowl appearance since 2002 on Sunday when the team travels to New Orleans for an NFC Championship matchup against the Saints. A Super Bowl win in 2019 would give the Rams just their second championship in franchise history.
Despite producing "The Greatest Show on Turf" during the 1999, 2000 and 2001 seasons, the St. Louis Rams only earned one Super Bowl victory during that stretch. That win came at the end of the 1999 season, when the Rams defeated the Titans 23–16 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The Rams lost 29–24 to the Patriots in the Super Bowl two years later.
The Rams entered Super Bowl XXXIV with an NFC-best 13–3 regular season record. It was the franchise's first playoff appearance since 1989, when the team was still in Los Angeles. St. Louis held a 9–0 halftime lead before going up 16–0 with a touchdown midway through the third quarter. The Titans scored 16 straight to tie the game with 2:12 left before Rams quarterback Kurt Warner found wide receiver Isaac Bruce for a 73-yard touchdown to regain the lead.
The Titans drove to the St. Louis 10-yard line with six seconds remaining, but wide receciver Kevin Dyson was tackled one yard short of the endzone at the end of regulation.
Warner was named the game's Most Valuable Player for his 414 yards passing on 45 attempts, both NFL records at the time.
The Rams lost Super Bowl XIV to the Rams at the end of the 1980 season. They also lost Super Bowl XXXVI to the Patriots in 2002.
