LOS ANGELES, Calif. — LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams finally have a date and an opponent for the long-awaited opening of SoFi Stadium. The Rams still don’t know for sure whether they’ll actually be able to have their big Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 13.

Even if it happens, they don’t know whether there will be fans in the stands of their palatial new home for its first football game. The coronavirus pandemic is occurring during a historic year for this NFL franchise.

The unprecedented circumstances are dismaying to coach Sean McVay, but he hasn’t given up hope of a proper homecoming for the Rams.
