The Los Angeles Rams wrapped up the exhibition schedule with a 24-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Los Angeles Rams third string quarterback Dan Orlovsky saw his first significant game action of the 2017 NFL preseason, and as expected, it was not a pretty sight. Frankly, his performance is a stark reminder of why he was out of football in 2016. According to head coach Sean McVay, Orlovsky is, and will be great in the quarterback’s room.

Hard to believe.

Nonetheless, the rust was apparent as Los Angeles wrapped up the exhibition season with a 24-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

As expected, the Rams starters were not on the field as McVay took one last opportunity to see who stays and who goes as roster cuts are quickly coming due.

By in large, Green Bay moved the ball with relative ease up and down the field, taking a 14-3 lead at halftime. The Packers opened the second half by grinding out a long drive that ate up the majority of the clock, as former BYU quarterback Taysom Hill took the offense downfield for a field goal. He’s also engineer a 9 play, 58 yard touchdown to extend the lead 24-3 early in the fourth quarter.

Orlovsky would get the Rams on the board in the fourth, when he tossed a touchdown to receiver Johnny Mundt to cut into the lead 24-10, finishing his night 16 of 30, for 149 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions that resulted in points for Green Bay.
