NFL: Rams urged to stop scuppering Championship chances

Head coach Sean McVay said stopping "self-inflicted wounds" would be the Los Angeles Rams' focus after Sunday's 38-26 loss to Green Bay became their third defeat in a row.

The Rams, who are 12/1 to win the NFL showpiece, have slipped from 7-1 to 7-4 during a run in which they have lost by an average of almost 14 points to the Tennessee Titans, San Francisco 49ers and the Packers.

Star-studded team struggling

This year, the Rams' ownership have gone all-in to assemble a star-studded team in Los Angeles by adding quarterback Matthew Stafford, linebacker Von Miller and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr to the likes of All-Pro calibre defenders Jalen Ramsey and Aaron Donald.

Ramsey spoke after Sunday's Lambeau Field letdown, revealing the mood in the Rams' locker room was not good.

"We have guys that are way too good for us to be losing games like this and losing games on the road," he told reporters, via ESPN.

"We've just got to get it right. We have to play better, everything has to be better because we're too good to be losing games like this but we're not playing like we're that good right now, so we got to correct our stuff."

Comeback wins difficult

The Rams have struggled to come from behind in games, dropping to 1-4 when trailing by double digits, but McVay said he was "absolutely not" concerned that things may be spiraling out of control.

"We've got to stop with some of these self-inflicted wounds and that's going to continue to be a focus and concentration for us," he stated after the game.

"And then expect to see some results."
