Written by Finatic Dave

Superbowl7The Dolphins will complete their two-game West Coast swing in Los Angeles when they take on the Rams on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 4:05 p.m. ET. It marks the first game Miami has played in Los Angeles since Oct. 9, 1988 when the Dolphins defeated the Los Angeles Raiders, 24-14. The Rams are one of Miami's least common opponents with just 12 meetings between the two organizations since their first game in 1971. The Dolphins hold a 10-2 all-time edge, having won three in a row and nine of the past 10. The last time the Rams beat Miami was on Sept. 30, 2001. The Dolphins have never lost to the Rams in Los Angeles, winning all three matchups there (1971, 1980 and 1986).

Sunday's game marks Miami's return to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the first time in 28 years. The stadium played host to one of the Dolphins' most memorable moments, the organization's first Super Bowl win in Super Bowl VII on Jan. 14, 1973 against the Washington Redskins. The game capped off Miami's perfect 17-0 undefeated season. The Dolphins are 3-1 in games played at the stadium, posting regular season wins over the Rams in 1971 and the Raiders in 1988, in addition to the Super Bowl VII victory. They also lost to the Raiders in 1983.

The Dolphins have won four consecutive games for the first time since 2008 when the team won its final five contests on its way to an AFC East title. The team's latest win, in Week 10 at San Diego, was its first victory on the West Coast since they won at Oakland, 33-17, on Nov. 28, 2010
