The 1972Los Angeles Rams season was the team's 35th year with the National Football League and the 27th season in Los Angeles. The Rams looked to improve on their 8-5-1 record from 1971 and make the playoffs for the first time since 1969. After a win against the New Orleans Saints at home, the Rams tied the Chicago Bears, 13-13, their third straight season with a tie. This was followed by an embarrassing loss to the Atlanta Falcons, 31-3. However, the Rams would then pick up their winning ways, beating the San Francisco 49ers 31-7 at home, the Philadelphia Eagles 34-3 in Philly, and the Cincinnati Bengals 15-12 at home. However, following this three-game winning streak, the Rams struggled, losing several close games as they lost five of their last six to end the season 6-7-1. This was the last time the Rams missed the playoffs until 1981, as they started a dynasty the next season that won the NFC West seven consecutive times, from 1973-1979. They also finished in second place in 1980.
