The Los Angeles Rams were absolutely embarrassed by the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII and, to add insult to injury, they made history in the worst way possible thanks to that poor showing.

The Rams were one of the best offensive teams to reach the Super Bowl recently, but they found a way to set a record for ineptitude on their way there. Thanks to their 13-3 drubbing at the hands of the Pats, the Rams became the first team in NFL history to never hold a lead in both a conference championship game and a Super Bowl. 

The Rams never led the Saints until they won the game in OT, meaning they didn't hold a lead in actual time. Meanwhile, they were horrible in the Super Bowl. 

There's plenty of blame to go around for the Rams' struggles in their last two postseason games, but quarterback Jared Goff clearly looked overwhelmed after the Divisional Round, which should seriously concern the Rams going forward. 

Even with Goff's struggles, head coach Sean McVay and his staff were clearly outcoached by Bill Belichick. Los Angeles will need to do a lot of work this offseason if it wants to not only make it back to the Super Bowl again next season, but actually win it.
