Jalen Ramsey was straight honest after the Los Angeles Rams' Week 1 loss as he admitted that the Buffalo Bills went out and dominated them. On Thursday at SoFi Stadium, the Bills ousted the Rams 31-10. The Rams, the reigning NFL champions, were opening the season at home and it was all but a convincing start to their title defense.
Ramsey, who is considered as one of the premiere cornerbacks in the NFL, didn't enjoy a great night as Stefon Diggs caugh eight passes for 122 yards and one touchdown. "We got our ass beat. Straight up," Ramsey said after the game, per ESPN.
Even though the Rams were listed as the home team, Bills Mafia could have been clearly heard throughout the entire game. There were times when the Rams used a silent snap count, despite being the home team. "I mean, we prepared for it," Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford said.
"We prepared to be on the silent count at home again. But it wasn't something that we haven't done before."
Ramsey, coach on the Rams' loss
The Rams didn't score a single point in the second half as the Bills scored three touchdowns in as many possessions to claim a 31-10 win.
After the game, Rams head coach Sean McVay took the full responsibility for the team's loss in Week 1. "When you look at a lot of the ways that this game unfolded, [I] feel a huge sense of responsibility to this team," McVay said.
"We weren't ready to go. I take a lot of pride in that, and that's on me. I've got to do better. There were a lot of decisions that I made that I felt like didn't put our players in good enough spots. So it was a humbling experience, but we're going to stay connected.
We're going to all look inward. We're going to do a better job moving forward." The Rams host the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2.
