“I thought Austin Trammell did a great job being able to step up in his absence and make some key and critical plays. I’m just so proud of this group,” Rams coach Sean McVay said.

“The grit was on display, the mental toughness, the ability to get stops, the ability to be able to feed off of one another. Man, there’s a lot of things we can learn from offensively.”
