The Bills haven’t played a game in that stadium since 1992 when they met the Los Angeles Raiders and lost 20-3. The last time they played the Rams in Los Angeles was 1983, and that game was played at Anaheim Stadium.
Buffalo comes into the game with a 2-2 record and riding a two-game winning streak, but the Rams are in better shape, now 3-1 and on a three-game winning streak. The teams have played one common opponent, and both took down the Arizona Cardinals.

Why the Bills can cover the spread
After opening this season with consecutive losses, Buffalo has won two straight, most recently a 16-0 blanking of the New England Patriots in Foxborough last week. Of course, New England had to start a rookie at quarterback in place of the suspended Tom Brady, but as far as the Bills are concerned, a win is a win—especially against the hated Patriots.
Buffalo took an early lead last week on a seven-yard LeSean McCoy catch and bumped that advantage to 13-0 with a pair of Dan Carpenter field goals.
Then, on the biggest play of the game, with New England driving late in the second quarter, Bills linebacker Zach Brown drilled Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett, causing a fumble Buffalo would recover and putting a halt to New England’s only real scoring threat of the day.
The Bills defense then finished off the shutout from there, as Buffalo won outright as a three-point dog. Buffalo outgained the Patriots, 378-277, and won time of possession by a 36-24 margin.
Two weeks ago, the Bills intercepted Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer four times on their way to a 33-18 victory over the Cardinals.
