Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay said he had been "out-coached" by New England Patriots counterpart Bill Belichick after his team's Super Bowl defeat on Sunday. A downcast McVay -- who could have become the youngest coach in history to win a Super Bowl -- entered the game as the hottest coaching property in the NFL after transforming the Rams into title contenders in two seasons. However the 33-year-old was put firmly in place by the Patriots old master Belichick, who devised a defensive scheme which suffocated the Rams dangerous offense.
