McVay's Rams look tougher than many expected after 2-0 start

LOS ANGELES (AP) Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams are not interested in taking any steps backward.

Even after three straight winning seasons with two division titles and a Super Bowl trip during McVay's first three years in charge, the Rams were a popular preseason pick to struggle in the ultra-competitive NFC West this season. They had lost an uncommon amount of veteran talent without replacing much of it from outside, and the rest of their division improved dramatically.

But after two weeks, the Rams (2-0) are evoking memories of the way they played in their NFC championship season in 2018. McVay's offense has racked up 871 yards while looking much sharper and more creative than it did last season, while the defense is off to an encouraging start under new coordinator Brandon Staley after holding Philadelphia to just one lengthy touchdown drive in LA's 37-19 win Sunday.
