Here’s the Rams full schedule for the 2021 NFL Season

The NFL released the Las Angeles Rams schedule on Wednesday, May 12. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime time matchups, and strength of schedule.

The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on Wednesday, May 12, and the Los Angeles Rams are officially set to kick off their 2021 season at home against the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football. Their first divisional game will be in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals at home.

The Rams were elite on defense once again last season. They gave up the fewest passing yards (3,051) and points (296) in the NFL. Having Aaron Donald leading the defensive line and Jalen Ramsey leading the secondary helped Los Angeles keep many offenses in check. The Rams managed to finish second in the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West despite inconsistent quarterback play and the absence of a go-to running back. Los Angeles hopes that Matthew Stafford can help maximize its potential in 2021.

All times listed are Eastern.
