Another Sluggish Offensive Performance Dooms Los Angeles Rams in 22-10 Loss to Dallas Cowboys
The Los Angeles Rams are in unfamiliar territory compared to last season. A potent offense that scored a lot of points is now struggling to score any points.
As the Rams sit at 2-3 following a 22-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, it might be time to start worrying about the offensive production. An offense that features the duo of quarterback Matthew Stafford and receiver Cooper Kupp has failed to score 20 points now in four out of their five games. If you look at the stat sheet, it would appear that the Rams were offensively productive on Sunday. They outgained the Cowboys 323 yards to 239, with Stafford throwing for 308 yards and a touchdown while Kupp recorded seven catches for 125 yards and a touchdown.
However, a majority of those came on a Kupp 75-yard touchdown catch. Take that catch away and Stafford threw for only 233 yards while Kupp was limited to 50 receiving yards. Although you can’t take a catch away from the actual event, it shows how stagnant the Rams offense has become.
Meanwhile, the supposedly improved run game continues to be nonexistent, as the Rams as a team only managed a mere 38 yards on 15 carries. Stafford was also sacked five times. If the Rams cannot figure out how to make their offense work with their patchwork offensive ,, this will be the recurring theme throughout the season.

Sure, Stafford and Kupp will get their numbers, as well as tight end Tyler Higbee. Those numbers won’t do any damage as they can’t add points to the board.
