INGLEWOOD, Calif. – Rams head coach Sean McVay and quarterback Matthew Stafford each held postgame press conferences with the media following the team's on Sunday at SoFi Stadium, discussing the performances of Stafford, wide receiver Cooper Kupp, running back Kyren Williams and other key offensive performers, the way the fourth quarter unfolded and more.

"I thought there was some really good individual performances today, and I think there's some really great learning opportunities for us, players and coaches alike." – McVay

"(I said to him) that I got a lot of confidence in him." – McVay
- McVay was undeterred by Williams' two fumbles, and that reinforced confidence was evident with the opportunities Williams continued to get Sunday.

"Coop's (touchdown) was a really nice play design. Guys up front good nice job give me some time." – Stafford

- Kupp had 8 catches for 111 yards and 1 touchdown overall, marking his 31st career regular season game with 100 or more receiving yards.
"I'm just doing the best I can to try and help this team win." – Stafford
