2016 Los Angeles Rams by the Numbers: Team Stats and Positional Leaders

New, comments

These numbers won’t be pretty. But like any good wreck, you should probably look anyway...

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Los Angeles Rams Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Ever gone to see a movie with relatively low expectations, only to be so thoroughly disappointed at the halfway mark that you can’t wait for it to be over?

That was the 2016 season for the Los Angeles Rams.

High hopes from a move out west, a feature on HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” and a shiny new No. 1 overall quarterback would’ve lead many fans to believe that 7-9 bullshit was a thing of the past. But they’d be wrong. 7-9 bullshit looks and smells a heck of a lot better than 4-12 bullshit.

Nothing clicked for the Rams’ offensively, save for a career day from Case Keenum in the early going of the season. Outside of that, it was a lot of really, really good punting.

Kenny Britt had his first ever 1,000 yard season. Way to go, Kenny!

As for the rest of the team, let’s have a gander. Here are your 2016 Los Angeles Rams, by the numbers:
