Sean McVay’s Los Angeles Rams are having quite a productive season in the NFL this year. The Rams find themselves in third position in the NFC West Division behind leaders Seattle Seahawks and Kyler Murray’s Arizona Cardinals. They are currently on a 5-2 record. The Rams outplayed NFC North’s Chicago Bears by a 24-10 scoreline last weekend.
In light of recent championship wins by Los Angeles Lakers (NBA) and the LA Dodgers (MLB World Series), the onus is on the Los Angeles Rams to complete the three-peat by winning the Super Bowl in 2020. Here’s what Rams coach Sean McVay and quarterback Jared Goff had to say on the subject.
In light of recent events, the spotlight is now on Jared Goff and the rest of the Los Angeles Rams squad. The Rams need to win the Super Bowl this year in order to complete the city’s three-peat. star quarterback, Jared Goff, is confident that the Los Angeles-based franchise can challenge for major honors if they continue to play at their current level.
“I mean that’s the first thing you hear is, all right, now it’s your turn. And I mean — we’ve talked as a team since these two teams have done it, or I shouldn’t say as a team, but as a group chat within the team, these two teams have done it and now it’s our turn. It’s something that we’d like to do.”
“Of course. We got all the pieces, we’re winning games, we’re playing well on offense, defense and special teams. We always believe in ourselves and we’ve been there once with a lot of the same people and we know how to get there. Just got to finish it off and hopefully this is the year,” Goff told ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry.
Head coach Sean McVay also echoed the same sentiment as he assured the people of LA that his side will fight till the very end. The Rams last played in the Super Bowl two years ago. They suffered a 13-3 loss in what is now the lowest-scoring Super Bowl game in the league’s history.
This was their second defeat in the Super Bowl against the Patriots. The Rams previously lost Super Bowl XXXVI against the same opposition by a 21-17 scoreline in 2001.
“Just seeing that for the city and the success, I don’t know that you’re any more motivated to try to kind of be on par with those teams. But you certainly want to make sure that you continue to compete and produce at a high level because you got to be great to be relevant here in this city and I think that’s awesome,” McVay added.
The Rams last won the Super Bowl title in 2000. They defeated the Tennessee Titans by a 23-16 scoreline. Can Sean McVay, along with the likes of Jared Goff, Aaron Donald, and Cooper Kupp, lead the Rams to a Super Bowl title over the coming months? The city of Los Angeles will be forever grateful.
