Looking at the ugliest stats from the Arizona Cardinals 34-0 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2.

Well, if you support the Arizona Cardinals, you might be hiding at this point. The team has started out the 2018 season in embarrassing fashion, losing both of their games by a combined score of 58-6. In Week 1, they lost 24-6 to the Washington Redskins, then followed it with a 34-0 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2.

When looking at the tape and numbers from their loss to the Rams, there isn’t much to build off of. One thing that you could be happy about is their run defense, as they allowed one of the best running backs in the league (Todd Gurley II) to gain just 2.2 yards per rush. Overall, they allowed the Rams to gain just 90 yards on 33 carries (2.7 YPC). At the same time, though, Gurley scored three touchdowns and their secondary was torched by Jared Goff.

Outside of that one positive, the ugly stuff is just all over the place. The only guy who is sorta off the hook is Phil Dawson, and that’s because Arizona’s offense didn’t get the ball close enough to the endzone for him to be a factor.

Below, we’ll look at the ugliest of the ugly — pretty much the same thing head coach Steve Wilks will be doing when he flips on the film. Wilks, it should be noted, told reporters that “everybody will be evaluated” before Week 3.

Here are the five ugliest stats from Week 2.
