The Los Angeles Rams were game, but, in the end, it was just too much of the Green Bay Packers’ offense on Saturday for the divisional round matchup in Lambeau Field.

The No. 1 seed team in the NFC playoffs were just too good for the Rams, who were ultimately eliminated from the 2020 postseason with a final score of 32-18.

Here’s our quick recap of the game:

Record:
The Rams’ season ended at 11-7.

What it means:
The season is over, but it was a nice 2020 campaign for Los Angeles. The Rams played great on defense for the season and showed promising signs on offense. The future is bright for this roster.

Turning point:
The Rams, who trailed 19-10 at the half, stopped the Packers’ offense twice in a row in the second half as the Rams made it a seven-point game. Yet, Aaron Rodgers exploded for a big touchdown pass to Allen Lazard with less than seven minutes remaining to pull away for the win.

Injury report:
Rams’ star defensive tackle Aaron Donald missed a lot of time with the rib injury he suffered last week at Seattle. There wasn’t many other notable Rams’ injuries this Saturday.

What’s next:
It’s onto the offseason. Don’t expect a lot of movement in free agency and the Rams don’t have a first-round pick because of the Jalen Ramsey trade. So, the additions will have to be creative.
