Thursday night saw the Los Angeles Rams make an amazing comeback victory against the Las Vegas Raiders.
The win was something special for Sean McVay, as he gave his team an emotional post-game victory speech.
However, why was this speech so emotional to his team?
McVay Gave Game Balls To Several Key People
With the Rams coming off a huge Super Bowl hangover, getting a win in 2022 means a lot to McVay.
His fire during this speech has him thanking many people, but saw only two people getting game balls.

With Greg Olson and Baker Mayfield getting game balls, it led to the team coming together for a significant moment.
McVay saw what Mayfield did, and is impressed with him coming in on short notice and getting a win.
With Mayfield having little time to learn the offense, it makes the comeback victory even more special for McVay and the team.
While Mayfield is passionate about the win, his teams rallies around him after he got a game ball.
However, the win gives the team hope, which they haven’t had this season.
While Mayfield is new to Los Angeles, he’s not new to the league.
With the win, he hopes to re-ignite his career.
The speech might help the veteran quarterback, who’s having a historically awful season in 2022.
If it does, the Rams can build confidence this season, despite their season being practically over.
With the Rams facing the Green Bay Packers next, Mayfield needs that confidence to carry over into next week.
