    The Rams lack the “killer instinct” and they have no leaders.

    Oh yeah, why did the Rams throw deep on both 3rd-and-4 and 4th-and-4 during their final possession? Both passes fell incomplete and they turned the ball over on downs.

    Well, the Rams really blew one. They dug themselves a 20-3 hole against the previously winless New York Jets and fell short with their fourth-quarter comeback.
    The Jets were 17-point underdogs, so any bettors who took the Jets and the points look like geniuses now. But, again, I don’t recommend gambling to anyone.
    The Rams have to play a lot better the next two weeks in order to make the playoffs and accomplish anything if they get there. At least Jets (and former USC) quarterback Sam Darnold gets to enjoy this trip to Southern California.
