The 2019 Los Angeles Rams season will be the franchise's 82nd season in the National Football League, their 83rd overall, their 53rd in the Greater Los Angeles Area and their third under head coach Sean McVay. It will also mark the Rams' final season playing their home games at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, as the team will move into Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park in Inglewood beginning with the 2020 season. They will enter the season looking to bounce back after their Super Bowl LIII loss to the New England Patriots.
