Sean McVay downplayed the scuffle between Jalen Ramsey and Taylor Rapp during Sunday’s 20-19 win over the Baltimore Ravens.
“I think it’s healthy to be real with each other,” McVay told reporters after the game.
The incident came in the first half when Ramsey was spotted striking Rapp across the helmet in the huddle in the first quarter of the win. Teammates had to separate the pair as Rapp tried to take off towards him.
Safety Jordan Fuller told reporters, “We try to talk it out (in the moment) and hash it out. We got bigger things to handle, game plan stuff, adjustments. Everybody was able to focus and squash everything. Sometimes tempers flare. (It’s) grown men who really, really want to win.”
Matthew Stafford had a rough day with interceptions but he threw for 309 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions on the day.
The Rams improved to 12-4 with their fifth straight win and were still alive in the race for the No. 1 seed in the NFC, but needed the Packers to lose both of their final games. That did not happen as the Packers defeated the Vikings on Sunday Night Football.
