• Los Angeles under-performed in several categories. The offensive play calling appeared extremely out of sync as they continued shouldering the load on Jared Goff despite his obvious struggles. It is possible that the Bears defensive front was so effective that the Rams had no choice but to pass the ball, but the passing plan of attack they shifted to was simply not effective. The lack of any identity on offense and failure to adjust earned poor marks across play calling, personnel, and in-game adjustments.
• Los Angeles also struggled with game clock management, at one point in the fourth quarter burning two timeouts within a span of three seconds on the game clock. The Rams were trailing 15-6 at this point so timeouts were critical, yet two were used on nearly back-to-back plays.
• Chicago earned a score of 10 in the personnel category for engineering a win despite a lackluster performance from their quarterback. They relied on a smothering defensive game plan first and foremost, and a conservative, run-first game plan on offense that made the most of what they had in terms of offensive personnel.
