The Los Angeles Rams came up short during Saturday’s preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

After failing to find the end zone during their first preseason game of 2019 against the Oakland Raiders, all eyes were on the Los Angeles Rams Saturday night when taking on the Dallas Cowboys.

While things looked good for the Rams early on in the first quarter after Blake Bortles managed to take advantage of a Cowboys turnover before finding JoJo Natson in the end zone, there wasn’t too much excitement on offense for the remainder of the game.

The fact that Los Angeles only scored 10 points in their 14-10 loss to Dallas shows how difficult of a time the offense had for the second week in a row.

Obviously, the circumstances would have been much different if the starters were playing instead of resting up to avoid any unnecessary injury, but also it’s still frustrating to watch since the Rams shouldn’t be struggling the way they have been on offense.

When taking into consideration that most of the players seeing action on offense Saturday are battling for roster spots, one would think the extra motivation to perform at higher levels would result in more than just 10 points.

What’s even more frustrating to consider is how Los Angeles only put up three points the week before against Oakland, bringing their grand total in preseason to 13 points in two games.

Maybe by next weekend when they’re taking on the Denver Broncos, the backups will figure out a way to score more points for the Rams to provide some much-needed excitement for the unit.

Otherwise, it’s going to be difficult to watch Los Angeles perform during their final two games of preseason, although it’s tough to imagine things being more painful than the last two weeks.

At least when the real action begins come September for Los Angeles, the actual offense with the starters should have little trouble providing the excitement that has been missing these first two weeks of the preseason.

Plus, as reliable as the regular starters tend to be, the Rams still need to make sure they have the right depth at certain positions on offense to make sure they’re in the best shape possible, meaning the final two games will be extremely important.
