Rams head coach Sean McVay strongly reacts to LA’s Week 12 loss to Packers
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay was not thrilled with his team’s performance Sunday. He let that be known following their 36-28 loss at Green Bay.
While detailing his thoughts on the Rams loss to the Packers, McVay relayed a familiar message.
“A lot of the same things. Too many turnovers….We have to stop the inflicting wounds….we’re going to learn from these things.”
The Rams turned the ball over three times in the loss. They fumbled twice and quarterback Matthew Stafford threw an interception returned for a touchdown.
CHUVA DE PICK SIX!!!! 🔒6️⃣

Late in the 3rd quarter with Los Angeles trailing 30-17, Stafford’s pass was picked off by Rasul Butler and run back 33 yards for a Packers touchdown. The pick-6 essentially ended the game. Stafford also fumbled on a strip sack in the first half. It was reported earlier Sunday that Matthew Stafford has been dealing with a laundry list of injuries.
That would make a lot of sense with how the quarterback has been playing lately. McVay’s comments might be directed primarily at his quarterback. During the team’s three game losing streak, Stafford has turned the ball over frequently, including two interceptions returned for touchdowns.
Hopes of winning the NFC West took a big hit Sunday. With the loss, the Rams fell to 7-4, two games behind the division leading Arizona Cardinals who are 9-2. Los Angeles will play at Arizona in two weeks, but unless the Rams can play a better brand of football, it probably will not matter.
