Sean McVay expects the Los Angeles Rams to bounce back quickly from their embarrassing 45-6 loss on Monday Night Football to the Baltimore Ravens.
"Give them credit, they did a good job," he said of the opposition. "But we're not gonna let this bleed into next week. This is humbling, nobody's gonna shy away from (it), we've got to do a lot better collectively as a team. You give the Ravens their credit, but what you can't do is you can't allow the Ravens to beat us twice as we move forward into our preparation in the upcoming week."
Los Angeles was dominated by Baltimore in all three phases of the game, halting any momentum the team had generated from winning three of its previous four contests.
The Rams dropped to 6-5 with the defeat, putting them in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time under McVay, whose first two seasons as head coach included minimal adversity.
"I trust that we have the right guys in that locker room, guys that are mentally tough, that understand that whatever we did tonight has nothing to do with what we're gonna do moving forward unless we allow it to," he said.
Though they've labored through most of the season, the defending NFC champions hadn't lost by more than two possessions before running into Lamar Jackson's Ravens.
McVay claimed responsibility for the 39-point blowout on home soil, but the 33-year-old said he won't agonize over it for too long.
"Can't wait to look at this tape, fix it, and then we get ready for the Arizona Cardinals next week," he said.
