With week five of the NFL season in the books, these three teams put on abysmal performances yesterday. The #arizona cardinals got embarrassed early by the Philadelphia Eagles, the #Pittsburgh Steelers had a turnover-filled day against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the #Los Angeles Rams blew a chance to beat the Seattle Seahawks.

Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals got put away early by the Philadelphia Eagles, as they were down 21-0 by the end of the first quarter. Arizona managed a touchdown in the second quarter to make it 21-7 at halftime but was unable to do anything else for the rest of the game. The Eagles kept scoring and put the game away to take an easy 34-7 victory.

Without star running back David Johnson, the running game once again went nowhere, only managing 31 yards on 14 carries. The team has dealt with a ton of injuries and an ineffective offensive line so far this season. Arizona will get to stay at home next week to face a Tampa Bay team in need of a win.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Right before halftime, the Pittsburgh Steelers made a 34-yard-field goal to cut their deficit to 7-6. They even marched down and got a field goal on the first drive of the third quarter to take the lead. Then they completely unraveled on both sides of the ball at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars. [VIDEO]

Ben Roethlisberger threw interceptions that were returned for touchdowns on back-to-back drives and suddenly Jacksonville jumped out to a 20-9 lead.

The Jaguars then marched down and got a field goal to make it 23-9 in the fourth quarter. Roethlisberger then threw two more interceptions to give him five on the day. Lastly, rookie Leonard Fournette added on a 90-yard touchdown run to make it 30-9.

Pittsburgh's supposedly vaunted offense looked the worst they have all year and Roethlisberger was a turnover machine, after only having two turnovers in the team's first four games. Next, they face a difficult road test against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs.

Los Angeles Rams

One of the worst losses of the day was by the Los Angeles Rams, who fell to the rival Seattle Seahawks at home 16-10.

On their first drive, running back Todd Gurley fumbled out of the end zone at the half yard line for a touchback.

They would then capitalize off of an interception to take a 7-0 lead on a 27-yard Tavon Austin touchdown run. However, the team just make mistake after mistake from this point on. Rookie Josh Johnson picked off Russell Wilson and returned it to the 19-yard line. However, the offense was unable to take advantage and settled for a field goal.

Seattle then dominated the rest of the second quarter, managing 10 points on two drives to tie the game at halftime. Los Angeles then came out and drove down to start the third quarter, but kicker Greg Zuerlein missed for the first time this season from 36-yards out. Seattle then went down and took the lead on a 49-yard field goal.

The rest of the game Seattle did basically nothing, managing three punts and another field goal to make it 16-10. Los Angeles drove down into the red zone and Jared Goff threw an interception. The next drive they went three and out. Then they drove to midfield twice, with both drives ending in turnovers by Goff.

Despite this the Rams managed to drive down at the end of the game, getting to the 20-yard line with 17 seconds left. All three passes into the end zone fell incomplete, with the most painful being a drop by rookie Cooper Kupp that would have given them a chance to win the game on the extra point. Now, the Rams must bounce back from their worst offensive showing of the year and go on the road to play the Jaguars.
