The Rams are still the only team in the NFL not to score a TD this season. If they don’t score one next week they’d be the first team to do so since the 1976 Bucs who failed to score a touchdown in their first 3 games. Not a record you want to break.
Rest easy Rams fans, even though they only mustered up 9 points we finally showed some signs of life. Case Keenum had a nice pass to Lance Kendricks down the left side of the field for 44 yards, which got the Rams to the Seahawks 4 yard line. The drive sputter out after Todd Gurley was stuffed for a loss and a few short pass attempts went nowhere and they had to settle for another field goal.
Keenum ended the game with 239 passing yards but his QBR rating was still below 50; this number needs to improve for the rams to be successful. Good news is the Rams are hopeful to get Pharoh Cooper and Nelson Spruce back this week for some much-needed depth at the wide out position.
Kenny Britt continues to be the bright spot in the offense. He had another solid game catching 6 balls on 9 targets for 96 yards. If he can continue production at the number 2 wide out spot it should keep the defensive honest. With that, we should expect Tavon Austin to free up a bit down field which finally should allow some running lanes to open up for Todd Gurley who again had a low production game, 51 yards on 19 carries.
Although this is not an offense you’d write home about, there was finally some signs of life looking ahead. With this week’s match-up vs. the Bucs, who allowed over 400 yards last week to the Cardinals, we hope to see the Rams break out with a few big plays and finally get in the end zone.
