Los Angeles Rams vs. Baltimore Ravens: Stock up, stock down

We’re onto 2020...

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Los Angeles Rams Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

In what was arguably the biggest game of their season, the Los Angeles Rams put up an absolute stinker against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football at home. The Rams lost the contest by a score of 45-6, getting thrashed from the first whistle to the last. It was a disturbingly bad performance all-around from the Rams, who now look to have basically zero chance at the postseason.

Let’s take a look at the stock report:

Stock Down

Defense

Talk about an absolutely putrid performance, sheesh. The defense had two positive plays in the game, both of which were Samson Ebukam sacks. Outside of that, they couldn’t stop a nosebleed. QB Lamar Jackson did whatever he pleased as he scored five touchdowns and chipped in 264 total yards and RB Mark Ingram destroyed the run defense to the tune of 111 yards and one touchdown for 7.4-yards-per-carry. Not only that, but he chipped in another receiving touchdown. Disgusting performance.

Coaching Staff

The entire coaching staff deserves a ton of blame for this pathetic performance. The Rams were battling for their playoff lives and from the first whistle to the last, they were severely outplayed and never looked prepared or competent. Every coach on the roster should be ashamed of the way their position group performed.

Offense

Six points. Six points. The offense has now scored two touchdowns in their past three games. The running game was non-existent, the passing game was bad, the offensive line couldn’t hold blocks, and Jared Goff once again overthrew a handful of receivers, one or two of which were potential touchdowns. Nothing about this offense resembles the one from 2018.

Stock Up

WR Robert Woods

Woods was targeted nine times and converted six of those into receptions for 97 receiving yards. It was good to see him active again. Ironically enough, he was the only offensive player who decided to show up at all.

EDGE Samson Ebukam

Like Woods, Ebukam was the only defender who cared to do anything positive on the day as he collected two sacks and a handful of hits/tackles on Jackson. Ebukam played a solid game, but unfortunately for him, his teammates did not.

K Greg Zuerlein

GZ was a perfect 2/2 on the day. You can’t ask for anything more.
