The Los Angeles Rams begin their season at home against the Chicago Bears in six days. Where do the Bears rank among the Rams home opponents this season? And how would you rank the the rest of the scheduled SoFi visitors in terms of toughest home games?

Here are some candidates.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Week 3

Last season the Rams defeated the Buccaneers in week 11 before the Bucs went on to win the Super Bowl. It was a rookie showcase as running back Cam Akers and receiver Van Jefferson both scored touchdowns and safety Jordan Fuller intercepted quarterback Tom Brady twice. That was at their house. This season the champs visit the Rams house.

Tennessee Titans - Week 9

The Titans have been somewhat of an under the radar contender with winning records in the last five seasons and a run all the way to the conference championship in 2019. This season the Titans may have made the next biggest offseason trade after the Stafford - Goff exchange for the Rams by acquiring veteran receiver Julio Jones from the Atlanta Falcons. Jones will join A.J Brown, quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and running back Derrick Henry as one of the most imposing offensive foursomes in the league.

San Francisco 49ers - week 18

Week 18 still doesn't sound quite right. But nonetheless, here we will be in the 18th week of the regular season possibly with the division and playoff positions on the line against the NFC West rivals from the bay. At this point we should know who the 49ers quarterback is or whether the dual QB system that San Francisco has been teasing will still be in play. Whether they line up with Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance, or both, the rest of the roster is solid enough for the Rams to expect this team to rank among toughest teams to play at SoFi.

How would you rank this seasons home game opponents?
