THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams insist there is no panic internally after losing consecutive games for the first time under coach Sean McVay.
Convincing those outside the team that everything is fine is another matter.
“My wife got vitamins out in the morning when we lose two games,” cornerback Aqib Talib said Wednesday. “You got to just get back to the basics and play football.”
Quarterback Jared Goff, who has been receiving the most scrutiny for his performances in losses at Chicago and against Philadelphia, was emphasizing that message. Goff’s production has dropped off during the past three games, throwing one touchdown pass and six interceptions in that span after posting a 26-to-6 touchdown to interception ratio over the first 11 games of the season.
Goff had another interception against the Eagles changed to a lost fumble by league statisticians, not that it offered any solace.
