The Los Angeles Rams have lost three consecutive games, and the shine may be fading off coach Sean McVay. The Rams will try to snap the losing streak when they take on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV) in Week 7.
Unfortunately, this game could be complicated to see for viewers who have either Dish, or Sling TV, as an ongoing carriage dispute with FOX has resulted in all ESPN network channels being removed from those providers with no end to the feud in sight.
The Rams (3-3) were once considered one of the favorites to win the NFC title and make a return trip to the Super Bowl. However, it looks like the dreaded Super Bowl “hangover” has hit the Rams. They managed to score just seven points and produced their lowest total yards of the season during their 20-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Jared Goff threw for a career-low 78 yards in the game. The acquisition of Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey should inject some excitement.
As bad it is for the Rams, the Falcons’ plight is far worse. The Falcons (1-5) have lost four consecutive games and head coach Dan Quinn is likely to get fired sooner rather than later. The Falcons can score points with quarterback Matt Ryan, but the defense is atrocious – the unit ranked 31st, allowing an average of 31 points a game.
