The Rams, Chargers and Raiders all seem closer to finding out who wins the arms race for Los Angeles. Multiple reports indicated a decision coming at the January Owners’ Meetings in Houston.

Whenever the vote finally happens, either stadium proposal needs 28 votes from other Owners before relocation is approved.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell did not rule out the possibility of a decision coming in January.

“I am in favor of making sure this is done the right way,” Goodell said via ESPN. “The ownership has expressed their desire to get this done in a reasonable amount of time.”

That also means the home-markets must make their final proposals to keep their NFL teams.Oakland, San Diego and St. Louis face a final proposal deadline in about four weeks.

The teams will play their final game of the season after the deadline. Lucky for them, they will be on the road and not facing an angry home crowd.
