Just two years removed from a Super Bowl win the Rams are once again languishing with a losing record. Following on from their 5-12 from 2022, the Rams are now at a pivotal point in their 2023 season.

It was all going so well after three quarters with the Rams up comfortably up 17-10 having held the Steelers under 100 yards for the first half. But things all went south in the final quarter. Matthew Stafford passed for 231 yards, but failed to complete a single pass in the fourth.


“It’s just execution,” said Stafford. “We can’t have chances to make plays that are going to change the game one way or the other and not make those. We’ve got to be more consistent, and the only way to do that is to continue to work.”

The Steelers got a very generous spot on fourth and one at the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter to keep their drive alive, but Head Coach Sean McVay wasn’t in the mood for excuses, “It doesn’t matter what I think. That was the spot they made. I’m not going to sit here and make any excuses about stuff that didn’t go down. Those plays shouldn’t have come down to that if we executed like we were capable of.”

The Rams will have to get themselves back on track quickly or this season could be another disappointing one for a team that still has a very competitive roster.
