Rams Offense Sputters in 26-10 Blowout Loss to Patriots

The Rams offense went ice cold in New England and the Patriots pulverized Los Angeles, 26-10, on Sunday afternoon at Foxborough Stadium.

Now what's cooler than being cool?

The Rams offense went ice cold in New England, and the Patriots pulverized Los Angeles, 26-10, on Sunday afternoon at Foxborough Stadium.

Four-time Super Bowl Champion quarterback Tom Brady set the all-time NFL record for wins (201) as he threw for 269 yards and a touchdown, and outperformed No. 1 overall draft pick Jared Goff.

Goff struggled in the cold weather, throwing for just 161 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

Goff found receiver Kenny Britt in the back of the end zone with just over a minute remaining in the game for the Rams only touchdown of the game.

New England set the tone early as Pats running back LeGarrette Blount busted through the line for a 43-yard touchdown on the team's first drive of the game, giving them an early 7-0 lead.

Blount finished with 88 yards to go with his score, and Dion Lewis rushed for 27 yards on five carries as the Patriots rushed for over 135 total yards in the game.

Julian Edelman and Malcolm Mitchell led all receivers in the game with eight catches apiece.

Stephen Gostkowski was a perfect 4-for-4 on field goals in the game as the Rams were able to hold the Patriots out of the end zone in the second half.

Two-time Pro Bowl punter Johnny Hekker was the lone bright spot for Los Angeles as he punted eight times for an average of 54 yards per punt, including a long of 76 yards and four kicks inside the 20-yard line.

The Rams fall to 4-8 on the season, and head coach Jeff Fisher is guaranteed to continue his streak of not having a winning season with the Rams.

Fisher reportedly signed a two-year contract extension before the game, but has never had more than seven wins as coach of the Rams. 

Players of the Game: 

Stephen Gostkowski: 4 field goals.
Johnny Hekker: 8 punts, 54 yards per punt.
LeGarrette Blount: 80 yards and a touchdown.

Three Takeaways:

1. Bobby Boucher: Los Angeles Rams punter Johnny Hekker wore these custom Nike Waterboy cleats for the game against the Patriots as part of the NFL's "My Cause, My Cleats" program.

2. The G.O.A.T: Tom Brady set the NFL record for most wins by a quarterback with 201 in the victory. 

3. Turn Your Head and Goff: Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff did not have a very fun day on the job as he was sacked four times and fell victim to two unfortunate interceptions on the day.
