Rams fans were excited to see their hometown team play in their own city.

"It's great," said Art De La Rosa. "I brought my grandsons. We had a great time at the NFL experience. It's beautiful. It's wonderful. We're going to take it. Rams, baby! All the way!"

Despite the rivalry, fans downtown was happy to celebrate the two teams making it to the big game and were excited to watch their favorite teams in tomorrow's big game.
