Los Angeles Rams are Looking for a Win After Bye Week
By Kyle Zartman
The Los Angeles Rams are left searching for answers after the Bye Week.
The Los Angeles Rams were the big story to start the 2016 NFL season, new town, new team. They got out of the gates fast with a surprising 3-1 start, but have since faltered, as they are currently riding a three game losing streak.
After a loss to the Detroit Lions followed by another one in London to the New York Giants, the Rams are certainly glad to be home. Squaring off against the Carolina Panthers looked like a certain win a few weeks ago. However, after the Panthers’ decisive win against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, this is no longer the case.
Many felt that after three straight losses and a poor performance by Case Keenum in London that this would finally be the week Jared Goff makes his NFL debut. However, head coach Jeff Fisher remains firm in his stance that Keenum is the starter.
Unless this changes, everyone will continue to wait to see the No. 1 pick finally line up under center.

Hopefully during the bye week, the Rams have worked out the kinks of the running game as what was once considered to be the strength of the offense is now one of the most disappointing aspects of the season so far. The offensive line has been dreadful, Todd Gurley has struggled, and the play calling has been suspect. No one seems to understand why, in a close game against the Giants, Keenum attempted 53 passes.
Loss after loss has seen the Rams continue to fall out of favor in the NFC standings. Hopefully, returning home to the Los Angeles Coliseum will rejuvenate the team. A tough test against the Panthers awaits on Sunday. The Rams need to give their fans something to cheer about and get a win to start the second half of the season.
