The 2001 St. Louis Rams season(now as Los Angeles Rams) was the 64th season for the team in the National Football League and seventh season in St. Louis. The Rams set a franchise record for wins in a season (14), while also going a perfect 8–0 on the road. Quarterback Kurt Warner would go on to win his second league MVP award. Along with Warner’s 1999 MVP award and Marshall Faulk’s 2000 award, the Rams had amassed the last three NFL MVP awards.
The Rams also became the first team in NFL history to open three consecutive seasons with six straight wins and the first to score 500 or more points in three consecutive seasons.
The Rams returned to the Super Bowl for a second time, this time against the 11-5 New England Patriots, led by Bill Belicheck and a young Tom Brady. The Rams lost 20-17.
This was the final season with the Rams as “The Greatest Show on Turf” as Kurt Warner struggled the following two seasons with the team. He was then replaced by Marc Bulger.
