m in the NFL. That doesn't mean there are no issues to address.For coach Sean McVay , it starts with himself.McVay was again critical of his own play calling, this time in the Rams' 23-20 win at the Denver Broncos on Sunday, believing it to be responsible for continued struggles by the offense in the red zone and a season-high five sacks of quarterback Jared Goff."To be 6-0 in this league is really hard, but we want to focus on our process, our standard of performance, and that's focusing on getting better and getting better as the season progresses," McVay said Monday night. "Nobody stops the season after six weeks. If they did and they said this is when everything is finalized, then, hey, maybe we could enjoy it and appreciate that Youth John Johnson Jersey , but there is a lot of football left."The Rams scored just two touchdowns in five trips into the red zone. Despite averaging 32.7 points per game, the third-highest total in the league, they have scored touchdowns on just 56.7 percent of red-zone possessions.McVay blamed his failure to stick with the flow of the game for those issues. He pointed to the fourth play of the game when he called a first-down pass from the Denver 12. Goff's throw to running back Todd Gurley was incomplete, and it led to the Rams settling for a 26-yard field goal by Cairo Santos."Anytime that you're in the role that I am, our job is to put the players in the best spots," McVay said. "You don't want to waste plays. My gut told me to take a timeout in that instance, and I didn't do it and it led to us not executing the way we are accustomed to. That's a result of the operation that starts with me, and that's an instance right there."McVay also said his approach was responsible for the pressure Goff faced, with Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb taking advantage. One call McVay cited had a tight end as the primary blocker on the fifth overall selection in the 2018 draft, while another at the start of a two-minute drill was too slow developing to keep Chubb at bay.The Rams had allowed a total of six sacks in their first five games , but Chubb had three of Denver's five."I do think it's unfair to the linemen to think that those were a result of their actual production when, in fact, most of those to me are pegged on some of the plays and spots I put our guys in," McVay said.McVay said the onus is on himself to continue to improve, looking for the same high standard he asks of his players."Those plays didn't work out in our favor, but they didn't really go in alignment with some of the flow and the feel of the game with the way we were running the football, and those are things you hopefully get better with and learn from experience," McVay said.Still, McVay is pleased the Rams continue to find ways to overcome adversity. It is a trend he hopes continues at the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday."Can't say enough about how resilient and what a great job guys have done finishing out games, finding a way to get wins , but our focus and concentration is on now getting ready for a tough division opponent," McVay said.But as the wins keep piling up for the Rams, so do the injuries.Wide receiver Cooper Kupp sustained a sprained knee when he his left leg bent back awkwardly on a horse-collar tackle by Broncos safety Darian Stewart.Kupp, who leads the team with five touchdown receptions, is not likely to play at the 49ers on Sunday and is week to week."Unfortunate for Cooper that he probably will miss this week, but thank goodness that it wasn't something that looked like it could be season-ending," McVay said.Left guard Rodger Saffold also sustained a sprained knee. Outside linebacker Matt Longacre was limited because of back spasms, and defensive end Michael Brockers sustained a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. However, McVay does not believe any of those injuries are serious.NFL-wide Headlines, Week 1 Khalil Mack gets traded to the Chicago Bears Youth Jared Goff Jersey , becomes highest-paid defensive playerWhen Aaron Donald became the highest paid defensive player in the NFL on August 31st, all eyes turned to the Oakland Raiders and disgruntled superstar LB Khalil Mack who had yet to report to camp. The pieces that were moved in this deal to the Bears had many questioning the leadership of the Raiders. Widely accepted that the Bears absolutely fleeced the Raiders. Raiders players took their thoughts to Twitter.Before everyone could even figure out how the Bears convinced the Raiders to attach a second-round pick, Mack was signing a lucrative contract extension. As it turns out, Bruce Irvin wasn’t wrong in tweeting this after Aaron Donald’s extension:San Francisco 49ers RB Jerrick McKinnon tears ACL, placed on Injured ReserveMcKinnon was a big free agent signing for San Francisco, who will now turn to a combination of Alfred Morris and Matt Breida for Kyle Shanahan’s offense.Raiders cut WR Martavis Bryant with looming suspensionThe Raiders had sent a 3rd round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for Bryant, who is now looking at a suspension of a year or more for his third failed drug test.Raiders trade for QB AJ McCarron, cut QB Connor CookCut day was a weird one for the Raiders. They lost their best player in a bad trade, their risky trade for a troubled receiver failed, and somehow acquiring AJ McCarron wasn’t the worst thing they did that day. For their sake , I hope that the Raiders can keep Derek Carr upright.K Dan Bailey cut by Dallas CowboysPerhaps the most shocking casualty on Saturday, Bailey is the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history. Brett Maher will take over kicking duties in Dallas. And it’s reasonable to believe that Bailey won’t remain out of a job for too long.Cleveland Browns name QB Tyrod Taylor starter over Baker MayfieldIn a move done in front of the Hard Knocks cameras, number one overall pick Baker Mayfield is told he is the backup behind Taylor. Taylor is an analytics darling and perhaps gives the Browns the best chance to win right now. This seems like a fluid situation with a coach that has won only one game in his two seasons with the Browns.QB Nathan Peterman named starter for the Buffalo BillsSomething, something, Colin Kaepernick is somehow out of a job.RB Le’Veon Bell continues holdout with no end in sightIt’s starting to get ugly in Pittsburgh. It’s been fairly accepted that this season would be Bell’s last in the Steel City, and this is the second straight season his holdout has gone into September. Perhaps Bell is worried about a DeMarco Murray situation where the Steelers would run him into the ground and let him hit the open market as a guy coming off a 450-touch season.S Earl Thomas ends holdoutThe last surviving member of the Legion of Boom will join a Seattle Seahawks team that has seen their reputation upended in the last 12 months. The Seahawks agreed to wipe away his accumulated fines for failing to show up until now. The Seahawks rejected a second-round offer from the Cowboys for Thomas, who is entering the final year of his contract.
