Jared Goff shows his command in Rams’ 38-31 win over Vikings


He became the third Rams receiver to log a 100-plus receiving yard game this season behind Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods. He made some wonderful throws, especially his first touchdown that floated over Rams cornerback Marcus Peters to Aldrick Robinson in the end zone. Minnesota looked like a completely different team than anyone expected on Sunday, and it's up to Zimmer to help turn them around to the right direction. Griffen said he doesn't know exactly when he'll be back in uniform, but he plans to "return as a much-improved person and player". They are still in one of the weakest divisions in the National Football League, and while Miami looks way better than expected, I am not going to bet against the greatest Coach- QB combo in history in Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.

Sam Ficken, the replacement for injured Rams All-Pro kicker Greg Zuerlein, kept it close by missing a 28-yard field goal with 8mins 21sec to play. This weekend we got a small taste of what that could be like, and it wasn't almost as entertaining as fans had hoped.

Goff found Kupp with two lovely TD throws in the first half, the first hitting Kupp in stride on that 70-yard sprint, and the second eluding two Vikings and dropping into Kupp's hands deep in the end zone.

Minnesota's Kirk Cousins completed 36 of 50 passes for 422 yards and three TDs as the Vikings (1-2-1) lost for the second consecutive week. We've got to take care of our jobs. "He's a good runner, so play action bought him some time, so that's what delayed the rush".

Hot Take: Looking at it with clear vision, then you can see the two quarterbacks have similar stat lines with Cousins attempting more passes than Goff. And no one's spending more money in 2018 than the Chicago Bears and Los Angeles Rams, who together have combined to dish out nearly half a billion dollars in guaranteed contracts, according to ESPN's Lindsey Thiry and Jeremy Willis. "No ifs, ands or buts about it", Gurley said. The backfield motion and short routes to the right side held Minnesota's defense just enough for Kupp's deep over route to develop.

Justin Milne resigns as ABC chairman after crisis board meeting
She told ABC Radio Melbourne's Jon Faine she had not heard Mr Milne reportedly wanted her sacked until she read Fairfax's article. Milne has thus far refused to be drawn on-the-record about Guthrie's failings, other than pointing to her leadership style.

Said Kupp: "Jared was just able to put it out there perfectly". So far this season, he's 25 of 38, on throws of 10 yards or more, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Cousins has thrown for a team-record 1,387 yards in the first four games, but an area where the Vikings need to focus going into a pivotal October 7 game at Philadelphia will be trying to get the running game back on track.

The Rams improved to 4-0 and now own the best record in the NFL.

Kupp, a third-round pick from Eastern Washington in 2017, has 24 catches for 348 yards and 4 touchdowns this season. They do have 7 sacks, but outside of that, opposing teams have been having moving up field at will.

And make no mistake about it, Sean McVay will be giving Goff a huge hug after his brilliant performance.
