Four consecutive losses and counting. The now 3-5

Los Angeles Rams have reached the halfway mark in the 2016 NFL regular season in a serious funk as they lost to the Carolina Panthers, 13-10, on Sunday, November 5. One can safely say that "the entertainment capitol of the world" was not impressed with either team's offensive performance.

The game also marked the unofficial awakening of the boo birds for the first time at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum since the team relocated from St. Louis earlier this year. The faithful are beginning to lose their patience as the team's offensive woes continue. Quarterback Case Keenum was the primary target of their frustration.

"We're going to lick our wounds here, and it's still fresh. I'm going to look at the tape. I would submit that Case was not the reason we lost this game today. We just didn't make plays in all three phases," said Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher.

"The problem is, we've only scored two touchdowns in the last two weeks and therein lies our problem. We have to continue to keep the defense playing at this rate, this effort, and with the production. We have to find a way to get some turnovers on defense, however, and we have to figure out a way to score some points."

Los Angeles scored all of the points in the 4th quarter. Greg Zuerlein kicked a 25-yard field goal with eight minutes remaining in the game to cut the lead to 10-3. Carolina countered with a field goal at 3:18 and the Rams scored their only touchdown with 34 seconds remaining when Keenum hit wide receiver Kenny Britt with a 10-yard pass.

Keenum: "There were couple plays there that I want back, but it wasn't good enough. I have to go look at it on film, but it was not good enough." Keenum ended up completing 27/46 passes for 296 yards with one touchdown and one interception thrown.

The Rams will travel to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey for next weekend's matchup with the New York Jets, a 3-6 team that also lost four in a row earlier this season and lost to the Dolphins at Miami, 27-23, on Sunday.
