Alexander: Where does Jared Goff go from here?

ATLANTA — This can go one of two ways. Either the Rams, and in particular quarterback Jared Goff, take the humbling experience of Sunday night in Atlanta, learn from it and apply the lessons the next time they get to the big stage. The other alternative? Their immense offensive futility in their 13-3 loss to New England scars Goff to such a degree that he doesn’t get this far again. Anyone who saw this team score 54 points against Kansas City in November must have been rubbing their eyes and won...

Whicker: Rams’ superb defensive effort gets Gronked

ATLANTA – The ball sailed out of Tom Brady’s hand and down the left sideline, with Rob Gronkowski and three Rams converging. To the naked eyes of the crowd in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, it seemed like yet another hopeless pass in an evening that overflowed with them. To Les Snead, the Rams’ general manager, it was a replay he immediately wished he could overturn. “It’s interesting when you see that occur,” Snead said, in a massive locker room of resignation and fatigue. “I’m saying, dang, I’ve kinda...
