Throughout the offseason, theRams.com will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. Here's a look at what's out there for Thursday, January 30 about your Los Angeles Rams.
GOODELL OPEN TO KICKING OFF 2020 REGULAR SEASON AT SOFI STADIUM
During his state of the league address from Miami on Wednesday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was asked by Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times about possibly kicking off the 2020 regular season at SoFi Stadium. Goodell indicated he is open doing so.
Multiple factors will be going into that decision, including relaunching two teams in Los Angeles via a new stadium plus one in Las Vegas, the league's 100th birthday on Sept. 17 and the Super Bowl LIV champion, according to Goodell. The league historically has had the defending Super Bowl champion play in primetime, but that obligation can be fulfilled by having that team can play on either Thursday night or Sunday night. Goodell said the natural acclimation period that comes with a new stadium also comes into consideration.
Even if SoFi Stadium did not end up hosting the regular season-opener, it would still be a candidate for a primetime game during the season.
