Video: Rams Offense Goes Stale, Fails to Score a TD in 17-12 Loss in Pittsburgh

The Rams had two weeks to prepare for the Steelers with the bye week, and they managed to follow up 24-10 win over the Bengals two weeks back with an awful 17-12 loss in Pittsburgh.

The offense did next to nothing, turning the ball over four times, Jared Goff was sacked four times, and they managed just a single field goal. They scored on a defensive touchdown on the game’s first drive, and that was it.

Here’s highlights from the five-point loss in the Steel City that put the Rams at 5-4 on the year.

Video: NFL Week 10 Preview – Rams Look to Take Out the Steelers in Pittsburgh

The Rams travel to the Steel City Sunday to take on the Steelers, who have overcome a 1-4 start to push their mark at 4-4 after Sunday’s win over the Colts.

Here’s a preview of Sunday’s affair from the NFL:

Rams Send CB Aquib Talib and a 5th Round Pick to Miami for Future Pick

The Rams have found a trading partner for 33-year-old cornerback Aquib Talib, a player who is on injured reserve and can’t even play right now.

The team that is willing to take on Taliq are the Miami Dolphins, a team that hasn’t won a game this season and fell to 0-8 after Monday night’s 27-14 loss in Pittburgh.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Rams also are sending a 5th round pick to Miami.

As far as the return back to the Rams, Schefter said simply it would be a ‘future pick.’

Taliq has been known for his injuries, and hasn’t played all 16 games in any season since entering the league in 2008.

So basically this is nothing more than the Dolphins willing to eat up salary for a player who likely can’t take the field.

The Rams went overseas on Sunday and played well, as they did enough to top the winless Cincinnati Bengals 24-10 to move to 5-3 on the year.

Todd Gurley Misses Practice with a Left Thigh Contusion

Todd Gurley popped up on Los Angeles’ first injury report of the week, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.

The Rams running back did not practice Wednesday with a quad injury. Rams coach Sean McVay told reporters Gurley is “day-to-day” with a left thigh contusion.

Gurley was joined on the sidelines by linebacker Clay Matthews (jaw), cornerback Aqib Talib (ribs) and linebacker Natrez Patrick (hamstring). Receiver Brandin Cooks (concussion), safety Taylor Rapp (ankled) and linebacker Bryce Hager (shoulder) were limited.

Bothered by a knee injury late last season, the Rams running back has been relatively healthy so far in 2019. Gurley has played in all five of L.A.’s games, averaging 15.6 touches and 67.6 total yards per contest.

Gurley has played over 60 snaps in each of the Rams’ last two games. On the season, Gurley has been on-field for 262 snaps, or 75.5 percent of L.A.’s offensive plays. Malcolm Brown has filled in when Gurley is off the field.

Sean McVay Claims RB Todd Gurley is Not on a Load Management Program

Rams coach Sean McVay told reporters Monday that running back Todd Gurley is not on a load management program, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports.

“We’re not doing anything like that,” McVay said. “It’s more along the lines of each week presents a different approach. It’s kind of the feel the flow of the game.”

Gurley, a two-time All Pro, rushed for 43 yards on 14 carries in a 20-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday night.

“I have to do better about being able to give him a chance to really get more into a rhythm than what I’ve enabled him to do in these first three games,” McVay said.

Gurley’s production has been markedly down from the 2018 season when he rushed for 1,251 yards and caught 59 passes for 580 yards. He led the league with 21 touchdowns.
