Rams’ Sean McVay on recent struggles: We’ve got to ‘figure it out fast’
Earlier in the season, the Los Angeles Rams looked unbeatable. Their offense was ripping teams to shreds, Jared Goff was lighting up secondaries and the Rams just, well, weren’t losing.
Now, things have changed a bit.
Los Angeles has lost two games in a row after its surprising home loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, and the most concerning aspect is that its vaunted offense has scored just 29 games combined over the last two weeks.
Rams head coach Sean McVay says his team needs to rectify whatever problems it has now before the playoffs, according to Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com:
“We’ve got to be able to figure this out and figure it out fast,” McVay. said “Because these last couple weeks, we’re doing things totally uncharacteristic of what good football teams do, of what we’ve done through the first handful of games this season. The only thing we know how to do is go back to work, look at ourselves. Everybody’s got a hand in this and we’ve got to get it figured out fast.”
Los Angeles currently owns a record of 11-3 and is trying to lock up a first-round bye. However, it has gone just 3-3 since its 8-0 start and has fallen behind the New Orleans Saints for the No. 1 seed in the NFC. The Saints will battle the Carolina Panthers on Monday night. The Rams are aiming to make the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2004.
