McVay, 31, hired in January after serving as the Washington Redskins’ offensive coordinator from 2014-2016, became the youngest head coach to win a game in the Super Bowl era.
“I could have avoided it if I wanted to, but I felt like I kind of had to take it a little bit,” McVay said after the game.
The Rams offense looked completely fresh under McVay. Second-year quarterback Jared Goff, who struggled mightily during his rookie season, was only one of four quarterbacks Sunday to throw for over 300 yards.
The Redskins won’t have to wait long to face McVay as they’re set to meet Sunday in Week 2.
