Rams’ Jalen Ramsey fires back at critics of controversial PI call at end of win vs. Cowboys
Fresh off a brand-new—and very lucrative—contract extension, former Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey helped lead the Los Angeles Rams to a massive Week 1 win over the once heralded Dallas Cowboys on “Sunday Night Football.”
However, such a win did not come without some serious controversy as Ramsey helped seal the deal in Week 1 by stopping Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup way down the field—well, sort of.
Ramsey didn’t quite prevent Gallup from catching the football for a long gain, but he did manage to secure an offensive pass interference call from the officials, which ultimately led to a Los Angeles win at home. Now 1-0 on the season thanks to Ramsey’s efforts, whether the call should have been made or not, the Rams’ season is now headed in the right direction while it was very close to going south in a hurry with a late and crushing loss.

Nonetheless, Ramsey has already made a point to fire back at his critics in regards to such a call against the Cowboys.
“It was clear as day,” Ramsey said of the play during a postgame call with reporters, via Sporting News. “If they hadn’t called it, I would have been highly upset. Yeah, that was clear as day, in my opinion. I don’t know what y’all saw, but that’s what I saw and felt out there.”
Ramsey and the Rams will now begin looking ahead to a Week 2 matchup against the 0-1 Philadelphia Eagles, a team that was unable to defeat the rival Washington Football Team to begin their campaign.
