The St. Louis Rams rank near the top of the league when it comes to how different they will look compared to prior seasons. The Sam Bradford era is over in St. Louis, as the injury-prone quarterback was shipped to Philadelphia in a trade that reeled in their hopeful quarterback of the future, Nick Foles.
Additionally, the Rams rank in the middle of estimated travel miles for the 2015 NFL season. CBSSports.com produced an article ranking the 32 NFL teams in estimated travel miles and the Rams rank 18th out of the 32 teams with 14,738 miles racked up, and zero trips that exceed 2,000 miles.
With secondary market ticket information for Rams road games from TiqIQ.com and travel options from Hipmunk.com, below are a few options for trips to catch the Rams on the road during the upcoming year.
12/27/2015 | Seattle Seahawks vs. St. Louis Rams | CenturyLink Field | Average Price: $367.16 | Get-in Price: $159
The Rams know what they’re up against when they face arguably their toughest division foe, the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle has reached back-to-back Super Bowls, winning one, and they’ve also been the class of the NFC West in recent years. Nonstop flights to Seattle through Hipmunk will take just over four hours, as the nearly 2,000-mile trip is not rational to drive. Roundtrip flights, meanwhile, will cost over $550, but it is enticing nonetheless to see the Rams on the road against one of the best teams in the NFL. With both sides possessing excellent defensive units, this will surely be a hard-hitting affair.
10/11/2015 | Green Bay Packers vs. St. Louis Rams | Lambeau Field | Average Price: $358.75 | Get-in Price: $178
The team the Seahawks beat to reach their second consecutive Super Bowl was Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers. Direct flights to Milwaukee are reasonable, being around $220, and Rams fans get to enjoy Lambeau Field, one of the true prized stadiums in the NFL. The three-hour flight is pretty quick, but the trip can be done by car. The 500-mile trip will take about seven hours up the I-55.
1/3/2016 | San Francisco 49ers vs. St. Louis Rams | Levi’s Stadium | Average Price: $213.83 | Get-in Price: $70
Another west coast trip for the Rams has to be done through the air, unless a 30-hour drive is in the plans. The flight to San Francisco will take just over four hours and cost around $500 for a round trip. The Rams and 49ers split their two meetings last season, each winning their game on the road. Being on the last day of the season, this could be a huge game for both NFC West clubs.
