Jalen Ramsey refuses to blame offense for Rams loss: ‘We do it as a team’

Just by looking at the scoreboard, it’s easy to see which side of the ball held the Rams back against the Seahawks on Sunday. Seattle won easily, 20-9, keeping the Rams out of the end zone for 60 minutes.

But even as obvious as it was that the offense was to blame, Jalen Ramsey wasn’t going to point fingers after the loss. He said the Rams lose as a team, and if it’s the defense’s job to carry the load, they need to be better than they have been, too.

It was a strong show of leadership for the Rams cornerback, not allowing this disappointing result to divide the locker room.

He added that he’s going to put a lot of the responsibility for getting the Rams back on track on himself, trying to step up even more as a leader in the locker room and on the practice field.

Seattle was held to only 292 total yards on offense and scored 20 points. The Rams defense did its job by limiting one of the most explosive units in the NFL, holding DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett both under 60 yards receiving.

If the offense had just scored its season average in points, the Rams would have clinched a playoff berth and would be eyeing an NFC West title right now instead of needing a win (or Bears loss) in Week 17 to make the dance.
