The Dodgers visited the Rams' training camp to wish them luck in the Super Bowl

The Los Angeles sports area is in a frenzy as the Rams prepare to face the vaunted New England Patriots in the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. They'll be looking to bring an NFL championship back to L.A. for the first time since the Raiders won it all in 1984 before their move back to Oakland.

Since the pressure is on, who better to relieve some of the tension than a friend in town? The Dodgers came through.

Justin Turner and Chris Taylor led a contingent of Dodgers to visit Todd Gurley and company at the Rams' training facility in Thousand Oaks, Calif. 

Turner had a chat with Rams coach Sean McVay, who has guided his team to the NFC Championship despite being even younger than the Dodgers' third baseman.

The Rams were certainly grateful for the visit -- the Dodgers know a thing or two about playing in championship games, given their success in reaching the World Series in back-to-back seasons.

The Dodgers fell short, but perhaps this time, the L.A./Boston showdown will go a little bit differently. At least the Rams know they have some strong backups if they want to reach across the sports lines.
