Where Rams Super Bowl appearances rank all time

EARTH CITY, Mo. -- It's officially Super Bowl 50 week as the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos arrived in the Bay area on Sunday. And with the 50th edition of the big game in the offing, there will be plenty of lists looking back at previous games and, yes, ranking them.

It's an undertaking already done here at ESPN by John Clayton, who late last week ranked all 49 Super Bowls. For followers and fans of the Los Angeles Rams, there aren't many games to choose from simply because the team has been to the Super Bowl only three times. However, there's no denying that when the Rams do make it to the promised land, they deliver an exciting finish.

As always, rankings are in the eye of the beholder but Clayton ranks two of the Rams' Super Bowl appearances among the top six games of all time. Super Bowl XXXVI, in which the Rams lost 20-17 to New England comes in at No. 4 and the Rams' 23-17 win against the Tennessee Titans checked in at No. 6. The Rams' 31-19 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XIV ranked 17th.
