Despite being one of the oldest and most storied franchises in the NFL, the Rams only have four Super Bowl appearances, with only one win to their name.
Their first appearance came in 1979 in Super Bowl XIV. After an improbable run through the NFC, they were cast aside by Terry Bradshaw and the Steelers 31-19. It's hard to fault an underdog side for losing after running into the buzzsaw that was the '70s Steelers.

The only Super Bowl win for the Rams came on the back of the "Greatest Show on Turf" offense in 1999. In Super Bowl XXXIV, they beat Jeff Fisher's Tennessee Titans 23-16, with Titans WR Kevin Dyson coming up one yard short a potential game-tying score.
After two more years of prolific offense, the Rams were back in the Super Bowl in 2001. Tied 17-17 with the New England Patriots late in Super Bowl XXXVI, the legend of Tom Brady was born, sinking the Rams thanks to a game-winning drive and kick from Adam Vinatieri.
With another shot at the Patriots on tap, McVay, Jared Goff and the Rams can make amends for 2001 and bring Los Angeles their second Super Bowl Trophy.
