LONDON, UK—The Los Angeles Rams arrived in London this week, as they prepare for an International Series match-up against the New York Giants on Sunday, October 23.
The Rams are hoping to find some positive momentum after losing two games in a row. While Los Angeles has managed to stay strong on defense, their offensive woes have continued to plague the team. Running back Todd Gurley has struggled mightily this season, running for 130 yards in the past two games. The Rams’ quarterback position looks even bleaker, as starter Case Keenum threw a heart-breaking interception as they made their final drive to tie or win the game against Detroit. Keenum played exceptional prior to the interception, throwing 3 touchdowns and completing 27 of 32 pass attempts.
The Rams have fallen victim to several close games, and four of their last five match-ups have been decided by six points or less. Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher was less than critical following his team’s latest loss.
“In this case you show the positives, especially from an offensive standpoint. And that carries over. Our offense believes they’re getting better, and I think the numbers are improving. I don’t really care where were ranked and all those kind of things, but the Detroit defense had a hard time stopping our offense. As we did their offense, but I expect our defense to bounce back, as the health factor improves,” said Fisher.
The Rams have fallen to 3-3 on the season and are currently tied with the Arizona Cardinals for second place in the NFC West.
