After the St. Louis Rams defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, they carried defensive end Robert Quinn off the field. Quinn had three sacks against the Bucs and pushed his season total up to 18. That is the highest mark in the league and a Rams single-season record.
Head coach Jeff Fisher called it “very impressive” and his teammates carried him off the field on their shoulders after the game.
“In our book, we just don’t carry anybody off the field,” defensive end Chris Long said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “We just don’t carry any jackwagon off the field. This guy’s something else.”
William Hayes helped Long carry Quinn off the field.
“Just after I finished my (on-the-field) interview, I saw Chris and Will walking back out,” Quinn said. “I was looking at them, and they hoisted me off. … I was just hoping I didn’t get dropped. I started wobbling a little bit.”
