The Rams have placed RB Malcolm Brown and CB Dominique Hatfield on the injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday. Rookie OLB Trevon Young, a sixth-round pick from Louisville, was promoted to the active roster. Brown underwent a procedure to reset his clavicle after suffering an injury in Week 13 against the Lions. Hatfield, a mainstay on special teams, will undergo surgery to repair an ankle injury suffered Sunday in a loss against the Bears.

It all comes full circle: The Rams entered Sunday averaging 34.9 points per game through 12 games. The last team averaging 34.0-plus points per game through at least 10 games in a season, to score fewer than 10 points in a game: the ST. LOUIS Rams -- 3 points on Dec. 3, 2000 at the Panthers (after averaging 36.3 in their prior 12 games), per the Elias Sports Bureau.

The Bears held Aaron Donald to his lowest pass rush win rate game of the season (18%) on Sunday. Donald entered the day with season PRWR of 43% -- best among all qualified pass rushers. Bears left guard James Daniels was Donald's most frequent primary blocker in the game, and he held Donald to a 17% PRWR when that was the case. Overall, the Rams were held to a season-low pass rush win rate of 28%. They entered Week 14 with the third-highest team PRWR of 61%. PRWR is an ESPN metric that uses NFL Next Gen Stats.

Stephen A.: Weather to blame for Rams' loss (1:11)

This was Sean McVay's 79th game (regular or postseason) as an offensive coordinator or head coach and just the second time his offense didn't score a touchdown, per ESPN Stats & Info.

The Bears stopped the Rams in their tracks Sunday night and handed them their second loss of the season in a 15-6 defeat. Jared Goff threw a career-high 4 interceptions, and Todd Gurley rushed for a 28 yards in 11 carries - his fewest rushing yards since the 2015 season. A victory would have secured the Rams a first-round bye in the playoffs, instead they return to L.A. to face the Eagles while locked in a battle with the Saints for NFC home-field advantage.

There were stretches last year, usually while trailing, when Sean McVay would mysteriously go away from Todd Gurley. He needs to keep going to him tonight.
