Quarterback Matthew Stafford said he was proud of the team.
“There’s so many guys on our team that deserve this,” Stafford said.
Kupp — who had eight receptions for 92 yards and two touchdowns — was named Super Bowl MVP on Sunday. Kupp was also named NFL’s offensive player of the year Thursday.
Stafford also had something to prove. This was his first season with the Rams after playing his first 12 seasons in the NFL with the Detroit Lions. McVay said a few weeks ago the team wouldn’t be where it is today without Stafford’s leadership.
The Rams solidified themselves as “Hollywood’s Team” after returning to the City of Angels in 2016 from St. Louis. Between Los Angeles and St. Louis, the Rams have made five Super Bowl appearances, with their only other championship win in 2000, in Super Bowl XXXIV.
