The New England Patriots managed to go 4-1 over a five-game stretch thanks in part to a strong defense and admirable offensive line play.
Neither group showed up Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams.
The Patriots scored just three points and allowed 171 rushing yards to rookie Cam Akers in a 24-3 loss to the Rams at SoFi Stadium that dropped them to 6-7 on the season.
Cam Newton delivered another abysmal performance on offense as New England dug itself an early hole it had no shot of climbing out of. As a result, Phil Perry's grades in his Week 14 report card aren't pretty.
