Rams 6, Seahawks 20: Second Half Stiflings Define Rams Again

Yet again, the Rams stuck in a game with their defense. Yet again, the final whistle blows delivering a loss to the Rams.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Week one against the Vikings at home. Down 13-3 with 10 minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

Week six against the 49ers with 30 seconds to halftime, up 14-3 on Monday Night Football.

Week eight in Kansas City down 10-7 at the half.

Week 10 against Arizona up 14-10 to start the 4th quarter in Phoenix.

Week 15, down six points to start the 4th in the rematch at home.

The Rams have been in close games all year, largely defined by the early performance of their defense. Today was no different.

Week 17, tied at 6 to start the 4th in Seattle.

All six of those games? Losses.

Six losses that dumped the Rams to 6-10 in their final game of the 2014 season.

And now comes the offseason with all the questions, starting with Jeff Fisher.

The Rams went 7-8-1 in 2012, Fisher's first year as head coach. They followed that with 7-9 season that saw Sam Bradford able to only get through the first half of the season. In 2014 without Bradford for the entirety, the Rams have finished 6-10.

Regression is the watchword, and it's unavoidably evident. Now comes the offseason with all the questions.

Now begins the search for answers.
