I think the LA goal can be blamed on the Sjoberg injury. Ford and Smith were obviously not on the same page probably because Ford was playing RB not CB 5 minutes earlier. Ford isn't completely blameless on the goal as he had an opportunity to clear but it could have been very dangerous had it gone wrong so letting it go to Smith wasn't totally the wrong play. Smith clearly wasn't expecting it though. That's the lack of communication and playing time between them.
