Thetimesofcapital/29/11/2021/The Rams left Green Bay on Sunday night with a 36-28 loss It wasn’t supposed to involve demoralizing turnovers, inexplicable lapses in concentration and a team full of stars moping after humbling losses. The Rams were too loaded for these types of problems, too flush with big-name talent. Now they’re facing their first significant challenges and how they respond will ultimately determine how far they go.

The Rams left Green Bay on Sunday night with a 36-28 loss.

That’s now three straight defeats for a Los Angeles team that started 7-1 and what’s most troubling is who those losses have come against. The Tennessee Titans and the San Francisco 49ers took turns pummeling the Rams in their two previous games. The Packers took advantage of them in a different way, by dominating the time of possession and maximizing on the Rams’ self-inflicted wounds.

The Rams are basically at a point where they can’t find a way to create the magic that had swirled around them earlier this year.

Packers outside linebacker Rashan Gary set up Green Bay’s first touchdown by strip-sacking Stafford on the Rams’ second possession of the game.

McVay called a running play on fourth-and-1 from his own 29-yard line later in that quarter, only to watch Packers safety Adrian Amos stuff ๏ปฟDarrell Henderson for no gain on that gamble. The Rams defense also couldn’t get off the field consistently, which became so problematic that Green Bay controlled the football for 39 minutes and 40 seconds.

Every person on the Rams who spoke after the game acknowledged that they are killing themselves at critical junctures.

“We have guys who are way too good for us to be losing games like this,” Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey said. “We just have to get right. We have to play better. Everything just has to be better. We have to correct it.”

Ramsey echoed a similar sentiment that his head coach offered when McVay spoke to the media, that talking about the problems only does so much. The Rams need to start seeing concrete actions that suggest their desired improvement is happening. For example, they’ve been talking about taking care of the football for the last three weeks. They’re still waiting for that unwanted element to vanish from their performances.
