Week 4 was brutal for the Los Angeles Rams after losing 55-40 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Los Angeles Rams always knew their Week 4 meeting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could always turn into a trap game, but no one expected it to turn out as ugly as it did.
It would be one thing if the Rams came up just short in a close contest, but what took place on Sunday during their 55-40 loss to the Buccaneers can only be described as embarrassing.
All of a sudden, things in the NFC West just became a little more interesting for Los Angeles heading into their Week 5 battle with the Seattle Seahawks since the Rams find themselves trailing the undefeated San Francisco 49ers in the standings.
Obviously, there’s still plenty of football remaining in the 2019 season, but when seeing how the Rams have always been on top of the division throughout the Sean McVay era, this could bring a new level of pressure.
But before looking that far ahead, Los Angeles needs to take a closer look at what took place on Sunday against Tampa Bay since there are clearly plenty of areas in need of improvement.
For a team that previously only allowed opponents to score a combined 49 points over the first three games, it was absolutely shocking to watch the Buccaneers put up 55 points on the Rams, especially the Ndamukong Suh touchdown at the end.
Now that Week 4is officially in the books for McVay and company, it only seems fair to take a closer look at why Los Angeles deserves to be considered one of the biggest losers from the weekend.
