The Los Angeles Rams expected Matthew Stafford to be good, but Sean McVay says the quarterback has been even better than he thought he'd be after coming over in a trade with the Detroit Lions.

"He has been better than I thought, and I thought he was going to be really good," McVay said. "I've been really impressed with his body of work and his resume over the course of his career. I think he’s doing a great job. I think the best players elevate those around them. I think guys are playing better around him. I think he’s seeing the field really well."

Stafford has a career-high 69.5 percent completion rate, a career-high 9.2 yards per pass and a career-high 116.6 passer rating. The Rams are also 5-1.
