More people in Los Angeles watched the Patriots than the Rams in the Conference Championship

More people in Los Angeles watched the Patriots than the Rams in the Conference Championship

The Rams don't exactly have the most loyal following in L.A.

After moving from St. Louis back to their original city in 2016, diehard fans have been hard to come by. Sunday's Conference Championship ratings in Los Angeles are evidence of that.

According to Joe Flint of the Wall Street Journal, more people in L.A. tuned in for Patriots-Chiefs than their hometown team taking on the Saints.

It'll be interesting to see the ratio of Patriots fans to Rams fans in Atlanta when the two teams face off in Super Bowl LIII.
