While Bills fans certainly feel for the NFL fans of St. Louis, who lost their team with the Rams returning to Los Angeles, Bills defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman, who grew up watching the Rams in L.A. he knows the significance of that team’s return to the city of angels.

“It means a lot to the people of Los Angeles,” Thurman said. “You know without football for 22 years or something to that effect. I grew up as a kid watching the Rams–wasn’t a Rams fan, I was a Cowboys fan– but I knew a lot of the Rams players when I was growing up. George Allen coaching, Jack Pardee playing, Roman Gabriel playing, you know watching James Harris play quarterback out there I was very familiar with them. You know, to the people of L.A it means a lot. Football is important to them.

“But L.A is also one of those cities where there are things to do, places to go. If you’re not playing well, nobody is showing up. The Rams are playing well, so I’m expecting a packed Coliseum on Sunday.”
