Here’s a compilation of the NFL’s power rankings for the Los Angeles Rams (4-11) heading into their final game of the 2016 season.

ESPN - Ranked 31

USA Today - Ranked 29

The latest example L.A. must hire an offensive-minded coach? Rams managed just 177 total yards on Saturday against San Francisco’s league worst D.
