Starring during the era were wide receiver Tom Fears and quarterback-punter Norm Van Brocklin, both eventual Hall of Fame members. The Rams were one of the NFC’s most consistent teams during the 1970s and 1980s, reaching the playoffs 14 times from 1973 to 1989 and capturing a league-record seven consecutive division titles from 1973 to 1979.
