The Los Angeles Rams struggled to generate big plays in Seattle.

Quarterback Jared Goff averaged just 5.4 yards per completion in his team’s 20-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks last week. The longest play from scrimmage for Los Angeles was 26 yards.

Along with L.A. finding difficulty creating chunk plays, they also could not consistently run the football, totaling just 118 yards on the ground.

The Rams likely will be without their top passer (Goff), top rusher (Cam Akers) and top receiver (Cooper Kupp) in the team’s season final against the Arizona Cardinals. So, it will be up to backup John Wolford to lead the offense and generate some big plays.

Per usual, you can check out the personnel report for head coach Sean McVay’s tenure with the Rams entering the 2020 season here.
