Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay was incredibly complimentary of Bill Belichick right before the New England Patriots head coach completely outclassed him in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.
McVay and Belichick had a quick conversation ahead of Sunday's kickoff, where the Rams coach showed how much he respects the Patriots' leader.
"The way you guys are able to shift your identity and really still be able to figure it out, week in and week out. It's unbelievable, man," McVay said to Belichick.
Check out the full exchange between the two coaches in the "Inside the NFL" video below:
McVay admitted after his team's loss that he was "out-coached." The Rams were beaten 13-3 and their offense, which is the side of the ball McVay excels at, couldn't get anything going against a resurgent Patriots defense. Belichick's game plan completely shut down Rams defensive star Aaron Donald and kept the Patriots in the game while their offense struggled to score points until the fourth quarter.
It was a humbling experience for McVay as he tries to correct the mistakes made and help lead the Rams back to the Super Bowl stage.
