The Los Angeles Rams are struggling on offense four games into the 2022 NFL season.
They dropped their season opener against the Buffalo Bills by 21 points and lost in Week 4 to the San Francisco 49ers by 15.
The Rams defeated the Atlanta Falcons, a team that did not play in last year’s postseason, by only four points.
Meanwhile, they defeated the Arizona Cardinals by scoring only 20 points.
Despite those two victories, the Rams are ranked 28th in total yards (294) and 20th in passing yards (225.5) per game.
They are also 30th in rushing yards (68.5) and 29th in points (17.5) per game.
Therefore, their offensive attack is becoming one-dimensional, and reigning Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp isn’t getting much help in the passing game.
For that reason, sports media personality Skip Bayless made a plea to one wideout to potentially help the Rams.
Hurry back, Odell. Stafford and Kupp are getting exposed without you.

Bayless tweeted, “Hurry back, Odell. Stafford and Kupp are getting exposed without you.”
The FOX Sports analyst is referring to Odell Beckham Jr., who is indefinitely sidelined after the ACL injury he suffered in Super Bowl LVI.
While the timetable for his return is still uncertain, the Rams showed interest in re-signing him by keeping his locker intact.
The two-time All-Pro did not rule out a return to Los Angeles but is still focusing on his recovery.
The Rams Need More Than Kupp
Without Beckham and Van Jefferson, the Rams’ passing game has been largely a one-man show.
Kupp leads the league in receptions with 42 and is third in receiving yards at 403.
He is also tied for third in receiving touchdowns with three.
