Weary Rams hit NFL low with 11th loss by defending champion

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — The Rams became the first defending Super Bowl champions in NFL history to lose 11 games with their 31-10 loss to the Chargers in the first Los Angeles derby at SoFi Stadium on New Year’s Day. The eighth double-digit loss of this season for the Rams contained all of the primary reasons why this consistently strong team over the previous half-decade has hit a historic low immediately after raising the Lombardi Trophy. These Rams still have many of last season’s difference-making veteran players on their roster, but nearly all of them are injured as the season winds to a merciful end.
