Rams coach Sean McVay’s hilarious description of Matt Gay after big game vs. Buccaneers

Matt Gay, Sean McVay, Rams, Aaron Donald

It was new placekicker Matt Gay who saved the day on Monday night in the Los Angeles Rams’ visit to NFC South contenders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

With the game on the line and just over two minutes to play, the 26-year-old came up big and converted on a 40-yard field goal to put the Rams on top. Gay’s kick ultimately helped LA seal the crucial 27-24 win over Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

Gay was huge for the Rams the entire evening, scoring on two kicks to help Los Angeles keep the home squad at bay. After the win, head coach Sean McVay was all praises for how big his new placekicker was.

McVay even went the literal route and tipped his hat to the second-year kicker who, per the head coach, looks like he has been working out with DT Aaron Donald.

For the record, Donald is one of the most insanely built superstars in the league. With that said, McVay comparing Gay to the 29-year-old beast is quite the compliment. After his successful debut for the Rams, it’s safe to assume that McVay is definitely elated to have another brawny athlete join his squad and spearhead the special teams.

Monday night was sort of a revenge game for the Utah native, as it was the first time he was playing against the team who drafted him as the 145th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Gay played his debut season in the NFL with the Buccaneers but was eventually waived prior to the start of the 2020 campaign. He was later on signed and waived by the Indianapolis Colts before he found his way to the Rams locker room just last week–which gave Gay just enough time to clear the quarantine protocols and suit up for Monday’s W.
