Jalen Ramsey has seen better days.
On Thursday night in the NFL Kickoff Game, Allen scored four touchdowns to lead the Bills to a 31-10 blowout against the defending Super Bowl champions.
Allen picked on Ramsey a lot during this game. Stefon Diggs finished with 122 yards and scored on a 53-yard touchdown after blowing by Ramsey, who couldn’t recover in time. After Diggs beat Ramsey for the touchdown, he turned back at him and let him know about it.
Ramsey, who had the task of guarding Diggs for the majority of the game, was ripped to shreds on Twitter after another rough outing, especially after his old comments on Josh Allen went viral.
After the game, Ramsey gave some insight on what exactly went wrong and he didn’t hold back while discussing the defensive scheme.
“Obviously we’ve gotta watch the film, but I’m sure we all would’ve liked to play man a little bit more. I feel like we kind of had a mentality like, ‘bend, don’t break’ a lot, because they were driving the ball but they weren’t scoring, like, we were getting turnovers, interceptions, whatever it was.”
The Rams forced turnovers as Allen threw a pair of interceptions, and the Bills also had a pair of fumbles in the game. However, the team’s offense was also turning the ball over all night as well.
McVay insists they will fix these mistakes — and the Rams have a long time until Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons.
“I’m not gonna run away from the mistakes I made tonight,” Sean McVay said. “We’re gonna fix this. That’s all we know how to do.”
