Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay is known for quite a few things: a tireless work ethic, a voice reminiscent of former mentor Jon Gruden, and an exhaustive memory. This week, as part of the Rams’ 2024 schedule release, McVay put the latter to the test … and aced it.

Asked a series of questions about the Rams’ 2024 opponents, each of them focused on hyper-specific stats, play calls and extracurricular moments from years earlier, McVay went a perfect 14-for-14, recounting everything from a first-and-goal fourth-quarter play call from a Week 7 game in 2021 to the West Coast rapper involved in a touchdown celebration against the Minnesota Vikings in 2022.

Here a few of the other specific things McVay recalled in the trivia rundown:

  • Which quarterback Aaron Donald tackled — and how the tackle was delivered — when the retired defensive tackle logged his 100th career sack
  • The play call that preceded wide receiver Cooper Kupp’s boisterous celebration in the 2021 NFC Championship against the San Francisco 49ers
  • Which famous artist performed at halftime of the 2006 Super Bowl involving the Chicago Bears
  • The top three all-time leading receivers in Green Bay Packers history
  • How much time remained on the clock for the Rams’ game-winning drive against the Las Vegas Raiders during “Thursday Night Football” in 2022
  • The play call for Puka Nacua’s first career touchdown catch

How, exactly, does McVay keep all this straight?

“I have no life, really,” he laughed.
