The 1950 Los Angeles Rams season was the team's 13th year with the National Football League and the fifth season in Los Angeles.

The 1950 Rams hold the NFL's all-time record for average points per game, scoring 38.8 points per contest.[1] They also hold the record for most points in a three-game span, with 165 points between October 15 and 29.[2] They are the only team in modern NFL history to score 60-or-more points twice in a season. They did so in consecutive games, in Weeks Six (70) and Seven (65).[3]

Los Angeles's 466 points scored in 1950 are the most scored by any team in the 1950s, and more than 70 points more than the next-closest team (which is, incidentally, the 1951 Rams).[4]
