Sean McVay calls Jalen Ramsey, Taylor Rapp spat “a little bit of a mix-up”

Before the Rams fought back to beat the Ravens on Sunday, they did some fighting among themselves.

Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey threw a jab into the facemask of safety Taylor Rapp as the two players argued on the field during the Ravens’ opening drive. Other Rams moved in to separate the two players and both men still looked heated on the sideline after the defense came off the field.

There were no other fireworks, however, and Rams head coach Sean McVay said it was the result of “a little bit of a mix-up” when asked after the game about what happened.

“Did you ever get into a fight with your brother? Yeah, you did,” McVay said, via Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News. “So, they moved on. I don’t think it affected our ability to move forward.”

Quarterback Matthew Stafford said things happen during games, but acknowledged that “we’ve got to be better for each other” in response to a punch being thrown.

Neither Ramsey nor Rapp spoke to reporters after the game, so we’ll have to wait to learn what, if anything, they have to say about what went down early in Sunday’s game.

  1. When can we expect these grown men, making millions of dollars, to act like professionals? Adults don’t things like this at work and it points to a culture problem (NFL and Rams) that they are excused to easily.

  2. Rams are starting to feel the pressure.They are all in for next 2 years and realize they are not substantially better than they were all the moves this year.
    Ramsey is overrated,not the same guy he was a couple of years ago.Same with Von Milller.Stafford is still Stafford.Turns the ball over repeatedly.
    McVay has his hands full trying to control all the egos on this team and the pressure they are under.
    Don’t see them winning more than 1 game in the playoffs.Always about the QB…..Brady and Rodgers are going to dueling again in NFC Championship.

  3. Ramsey is one of those guys that makes me just roll my eyes whenever I hear his name or see him speak. Odell too. There aren’t many others in the league that annoy me that much and these guys are on the same team

  4. Yes we all fight with siblings. But this would be like siblings fighting in church. It’s not like these guys were at practice with only their “family” to see. Im tired of that analogy every time teammates fight amongst each other during a game.

  5. Lots of negativity here, but who cares because Ramsey is the best cornerback I’ve ever seen in a Rams uniform, and I’ve been following the Rams for over 50 years.

  6. The fact that neither Ramsey or Rapp are crying to the news media tells me they have it under control. Stuff happens. People move on. Ramsey has been great all season. One top corners in the league. Rapp has surprised me – he’s been great. This was just a bump in the road and any mess got cleaned up with a paper towel.

  7. Football players being physical, hitting each other, good. They need to get a fire lit under their butts.
