Rams' secondary shamed for allowing the Packers to beat them down the field in a loss, 32-18
Los Angeles- The Rams had trouble stopping Aaron Rodgers and company in a loss to the Packers.
Despite a banged up thump, Jared Goff wanted to play in the game against the Green Bay Packers, which was vital, if the Rams wanted to upset the Packers. On the Rams' second possession, Goff threw two 25-yard strikes to his receivers to put his team in striking position.
On a fourth and short at the 30-yard line, Sean McVay decided to go for it. The Rams converted the down, however, the play was called back by a holding call on LA. They had to settle for a field goal, which tied the game up, 3-3 late into the first quarter.
At the start of the second quarter, the Rams' defense had trouble stopping the Packers on the ground. A costly penalty by Aaron Donald, helped the Packers get into the redzone. A few plays later, Jalen Ramsey was late getting over to Davante Adams, who was wide open in the endzone for a one-yard touchdown. The Packers retook the lead, 10-3.
The Rams just couldn't get any type of pressure on Aaron Rodgers, as well as stopping the Packers' running attack. The Rams' defense allowed a total of 243 yards and kept themselves in striking distance at the half, 19-10.
LA's concerns with stopping the Packers in the second half was non-existent. The Rams was getting gashed in the heart of their defense, while the Packers' confidence started to ooze with a roar of victory. Goff and the Rams' offense had trouble stopping the Packers' defensive front.
Everytime, Goff would drop back, he would have a defensive lineman in his face. The Packers' destroyed what little 'Swag' the Rams had in the fourth and went on to knock the Rams out of the playoffs and advanced to their second consecutive NFC Championship.
Goff finished 21 ou 27 for 17 yards and 1 touchdown
