The Los Angeles Rams finished the 2021 regular season ranked eighth in total points, averaging 27.1 points per game.
A year later, they have reached that number only once in their first four games.
Worst yet, the Rams tallied just 19 points in their two losses.
The defending Super Bowl champions struggle to score even if they retained the offensive core that made them champions.
The Rams have been outscored 44-3 in the fourth quarter this season 😬

Bleacher Report tweeted, “The Rams have been outscored 44-3 in the fourth quarter this season. Super Bowl hangover in full effect?”
The only points they scored in the final chapter came in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons.
That field goal conversion by Matt Gay helped them complete a 31-27 victory.
It doesn’t help that Stafford leads the league in interceptions with six and has only completed four touchdown passes.
Meanwhile, problems on their offensive line forced him to absorb 16 sacks, tied for second-most in the league through four games.
Kupp Needs Help In The Passing Game
The Rams acquired Allen Robinson II during the offseason, hoping he would complement Kupp’s game.
Unfortunately, he hasn’t lived up to expectations by having just 95 receiving yards after Week 4.
His best game so far was a 53-yard, one-touchdown performance against the Falcons.
As for his other games, the former Chicago Bears wideout had 12, 23, and seven yards.
While Kupp continues to deliver huge numbers, he cannot do it alone, and another option must step up.
Tight end Tyler Higbee has been a bright spot for the Rams, but he is not enough.
Therefore, the Rams hope to have Van Jefferson back sooner than later.
Likewise, they are hoping to re-sign Odell Beckham Jr. once he is cleared to play after suffering another ACL injury.
