INGLEWOOD, Calif. — No fans. No energy. And an entirely forgettable game.
Throughout the week, the Rams were asked how to avoid any letdown against the struggling Giants after they endured an emotional game last week in Buffalo, where they lost despite a 25-point, come-from-behind effort.
“We’ve always been really good at moving on and getting on to the next game, whoever it may be,” quarterback Jared Goff said earlier in the week. “Whoever they are, we’re ready for them.”
But the offense appeared stale Sunday, outside of an opening series that resulted in a creative 2-yard touchdown run by tight end Gerald Everett and a late 55-yard catch-and-run touchdown by Cooper Kupp. And while the defense was able to produce an eye-popping four sacks in the first half, it also played flat throughout most of the game.
