The Los Angeles Rams came up short against the Pittsburgh Steelers 17-12 during Week 10.
After enjoying some extra time off, the Los Angeles Rams were hoping to make a statement win on the road in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers to show they can in fact compete with some of the best in the NFL.
Instead, the Rams failed to show up on offense, and came up short against the Steelers after falling 17-12, dropping their record to 5-4 on the 2019 season.
With seven games remaining, there’s clearly plenty of time for Los Angeles to still end the regular season on a high note to earn one of the playoff spots in the NFC, but also this is easier said than done.
Since the Rams already have four losses to their name, the best chance this team is going to have at earning a playoff spot is through one of the Wild Card spots with Los Angeles currently trailing both the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West standings.
Even if the Seahawks were to find a way to knock off the 49ers on Monday night, the factors that would need to come into play for the Rams over the final two months would seem like too much for the division title to happen.
Once again, Sunday’s loss left Los Angeles with numerous areas of concern heading into Week 11 that will need to be quickly adjusted, or the Rams will end up watching the playoffs from home come January.
So as much as Rams fans don’t want to talk about what took place on Sunday, here are three factors that seemed the most frustrating for Los Angeles during the loss to Pittsburgh.
