The Los Angeles Rams enter the 2021 season with high expectations thanks to a new quarterback under center in Matthew Stafford. Rams fans are hopeful that Stafford's 12 years of NFL experience, including one Pro-Bowl selection, can get this team over the hump and to Super Bowl championship status.

Stafford attended his first OTA's in a new Rams uniform and it seems like he's already loving his new situation. It'd be easy to describe his new mentality with an organization owning more recent success as reinvigorated.

"Selfishly, I'm liking these times," said Stafford. He also went on to explain his excitement over learning with and from a new head coach, Sean McVay. "I'm constantly learning things about him. He's obviously a high-energy guy."

Rams fans can just feel the excitement and re-found energy that Stafford is already beginning to take with his new franchise. It's easy to be excited after his 12-year run in Detroit. Stafford lost 90 games over than span and saw playoff appearances just three times since 2009.

On the other hand, the Rams have made the playoffs in three of the past four years including a Super Bowl appearance in 2018.

Right now, FanDuel Sportsbook is also liking the Rams to make a deep playoff run. Los Angeles owns the sixth-best odds (+1400) to win the 2021 Super Bowl.
