In Los Angeles, it’s Groundhog Day, and like Phil Connors, Sean McVay is sick of realizing every Monday that his offense is a disgusting disaster. The Rams’ 16-13 loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday was due to their inability to gain first downs or score any scores. The Rams were limited to 24 points or fewer for the sixth time in eight games this season, and they failed to score 15 points five times.
It was difficult to watch the fourth quarter as Tom Brady and the Buccaneers had a chance to tie the game after three consecutive three-and-outs by Matthew Stafford and the Rams, who were behind the game. L.A. only managed 206 total offensive yards, of which 69 yards—or 33 percent—were on a TD pass to Cooper Kupp. McVay is aware that his 3-5 team cannot keep hitting its head against a brick wall.
