The 2013 St. Louis Rams season was the franchise's 76th season in the National Football League, the 19th overall in St. Louis and the second under head coach Jeff Fisher. The Rams equaled their win total from 2012, but missed the playoffs for a ninth consecutive season.

Week 7 was Sam Bradford's last game in a Rams uniform, as he tore his ACL in a game against Carolina. That same injury would not allow him to play for the next season, and he did not play another down again in a Rams uniform as he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles following the 2014 season.

Notes

^[a] The Rams traded their first- (No. 16 overall), second- (No. 46 overall), original third- (No. 78 overall) and seventh- (No. 222 overall) round selections to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for the Bills' first- (No. 8) and third- (No. 71 overall) round selections.
^[b] The Rams acquired an additional first-round selection -- No. 22 overall -- as part of a trade that sent their 2012 first-round selection to the Washington Redskins. The Rams later traded the No. 22 selection and a 2015 seventh-round selection (previously acquired in a 2012 trade that sent wide receiver Greg Salas to the New England Patriots) to the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for the Falcons' 2013 first-, third- and sixth- round selections -- Nos. 30, 92 and 198 overall, respectively. The No. 198 selection, along with the Rams' original sixth-round selection (No. 184 overall), was traded to the Houston Texans in exchange for the Texans' fifth-round selection (No. 160 overall).
