Rams coach Sean McVay calls loss to 49ers ‘humbling’
The Los Angeles Rams and head coach Sean McVay have fallen back down to Earth in a big way. After a hot start following an NFC title and a trip to the Super Bowl from just last season, McVay and company were upended by the rival San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon with Los Angeles losing by 13 points.
McVay did not mince his words following the Week 6 loss either as the Rams head coach referred to the defeat as “humbling.”
“The same way you navigate after a win or a loss: go back to work, try to find a way to just continue to get better, use every opportunity as a learning experience,” McVay told reporters following his team’s latest loss, via USA TODAY Sports. “Was it a humbling day for us? Absolutely, but it’s something we’re going to learn from. We’re not going to let it demoralize us. That’s a good football team, they did a nice job. We didn’t do enough collectively and we’ll all look inwardly and figure out how to be better moving forward.”
Thanks to the 49ers’ dominant 20-7 win over the Rams on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles, San Francisco notably improved to a perfect 5-0 on the season and serve as the only remaining undefeated team in the NFC. On the other hand, the once-heralded Rams now sit at an even 3-3 on the year, which was certainly not expected to begin the 2019 campaign.
The Rams will now begin to gear up for a matchup against the lowly Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.
