«It was a good shot, but I’m fine,» McVay said.
He added: «It probably looked worse when you were done playing, but I’m glad I didn’t break my jaw.»
The mistake underscored just how tough the Rams’ season has been as they initially expected to defend their Super Bowl title. This season has turned into a nightmare.

Los Angeles lost Sunday’s game to Kansas City, 26-10. It’s the fifth straight loss for the Rams and the longest of McVay’s tenure. Los Angeles fell to 3-8 and joined the 1987 New York Giants, the only other team to start with that record after winning the Super Bowl title.
The Giants, however, did it in the middle of a year-long strike by using several weeks of replacement players.
