Rams coach Sean McVay, predictably, was critical of his playcalling after the game. "We didn't do enough things to win the football game, and it starts with me," he said. "We talk about it every single week, how you've got to be ready to go because it is a very humbling league. We definitely got humbled today by a very good team."

Rams LT Andrew Whitworth, on this game: "The reality is, we needed this. We need some adversity. It's not to say that we didn't need to come back and win that game, but you know what, some of the adverse situations in this game — on the road, in a really hard place to play, against one of the best defenses in the league — to play the kind of game that we were in, and for this team to be in the game we were in, I think it shows that we're legit and we're the real deal. If we get this opportunity again in the playoffs, if we get a chance to get in, we'll be prepared for it."
