The Los Angeles Rams had a tough night making their way through extreme crowd noise while playing inside their own stadium. The problem was that it wasn’t their fans who were responsible for it.
Rams coach Sean McVay and quarterback Matthew Stafford both said the number of 49ers fans who attended the game and made so much noise while they were on offense made it difficult to navigate through as the opposing team made their way back into the contest. The 49ers pulled of a stunning comeback win to earn a playoff berth.
“It did catch us off guard,” McVay said, via ESPN. “Just because of the way that it’s been this year. It’s been great, great atmosphere, great environment. Yesterday was the same thing, but there was a lot of red there. That was definitely a surprise.”
Stafford said the Rams had a hard time getting plays called with the 49ers’ crowd noise advantage.
“It was a tough environment for us to communicate in really the whole second half,” said Stafford.
The Dallas Cowboys know all too well how 49ers fans can take over a stadium and now they will have to worry about the same thing when the teams square off against each other in the Wild Card round.
