Until their final two drives, offense was hard to come by for the Los Angeles Rams in their matchup on Thursday against the Las Vegas Raiders.

A boneheaded penalty by the Rams made things even more difficult and came back to bite them in a big way.

The play occurred in the third quarter with the Rams facing a 13-3 deficit.

However, Rams center Connor Shelton made an awful mistake following the play, getting called for a personal foul penalty for a swipe at a Raiders player’s head.

This penalty certainly made the field goal attempt much more difficult for Rams kicker Matt Gay, and he would go on to miss the 61-yard attempt.

Fans took to social media to blast Shelton for this mistake that ended up potentially costing the Rams three very valuable points in this low-scoring affair.

The mistake sums up the season for the Los Angeles Rams to this point, and this year’s team is unquestionably a far cry from last year’s team that ended up winning the Super Bowl.
