Dorian Thompson-Robinson is still dealing with a concussion that he suffered against the Broncos in week 12, so it’ll be Joe Flacco getting the start at quarterback on Sunday.
Despite coming off a big win against the Arizona Cardinals last week, the Rams continue to show two main weaknesses every game.
LA’s passing game continues to struggle
The Rams have an excellent run game with Kyren Williams emerging as a legitimate NFL running back, but something is off with the passing game. Matthew Stafford is having the worst season of his career and it’s unclear as to why. Yes, he’s been dealing with a thumb injury that he suffered against Dallas, but the below-average play has been going on since week 1.
As of right now, his “Bad Throw Rate” is at 18.8% and he has a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 1.4/1. When you consider the fact that he’s only being pressured on 18.4% of dropbacks which is the second lowest rate of his career, it’s even more odd.
The Rams’ defense cant create takeaways
Though this LA defense is filled with talented players, they are one of the worst teams in the league in terms of creating turnovers. They only have 9 total takeaways on defense this year, and have a -3 turnover ratio as well.
Whether it’s a continuous cycle of dropping easy interceptions or being unable to force fumbles, this team has a takeaway rate of 0.8 per game which is currently ranked 30th in the league.
