It has been far from smooth sailing for Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams in their last two games. In the losses to the Tennessee Titans and the San Francisco 49ers, Stafford has combined for 537 yards, two touchdowns, and four interceptions while completing only 64% of his attempts.

Despite his declined play in recent weeks, Stafford remains one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL this season.

At the top of the league in efficiency are Stafford and the Rams, leading in EPA (expected points added), along with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Ironically, Stafford and Rodgers will square off against one another in a pivotal NFC matchup in Week 12.

On the season, Stafford has completed 67.68% of his throws for 3,014 yards, 24 touchdowns, and eight interceptions in 10 games. And even with the recent struggles, the Rams are still producing a league-best 2.77 points per drive.

Turnovers have been a glaring issue for Stafford in his past two outings, helping the Titans and 49ers jump out to early leads. That’s something Stafford will need to clean up as the Rams get ready to enter the final stretch of the regular season.

There’s no doubt that Stafford has performed well in Sean McVay’s offense thus far and has given Los Angeles a quarterback they can rely on. While his recent games have been forgettable, the 33-year-old quarterback has been extremely efficient in his new threads this season.
