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

Aaron Donald recovered the fumble with 1:18 to go and Los Angeles ran out the clock.

Kirk Cousins made a valiant effort to rebound from his frightful game against the Bills, shredding a Rams secondary left vulnerable by the injury-related absence of cornerback Aqib Talib, and the fact that fellow starting cornerback Marcus Peters was clearly less than 100%.

"Any team can be beat right now, but, nah, we can't be beat right now".

After rushing for more than 1,100 yards and 10 touchdowns as a rookie three seasons ago, Gurley struggled in his second season.

Enjoy another edition of Thursday Night Football, everyone! This weekend we got a small taste of what that could be like, and it wasn't almost as entertaining as fans had hoped.

Yet the raw numbers don't describe the series of high-difficulty, high-reward throws that he completed in a brilliant four-touchdown first half.

"We made some mistakes".

Goff has shown he can make every throw in the book, from deep crossers to post routes to passes down the sideline. "He's a good runner, so play action bought him some time, so that's what delayed the rush".

UB40 Want Nothing to Do With Brett Kavanaugh
Cozzolino was treated in hospital for his injuries after he was left bleeding from his ear, according to the police report. Ali Campbell, the lead singer of UB40, says "It wasn't me!" at a bar in New Haven , Conn. after a concert in 1985.

Boris Johnson continues renegade campaign to undermine Theresa May’s Brexit plan
Ian Livermore, 65, from south Gloucestershire said the speech was "superb" and showed why Johnson should be leader. Other ministers chimed in, with Justice Minister David Gauke doubting Johnson's credentials for leadership.

Liverpool and Man City Premier League claim made
But United's defence was cut through easily when Mark Noble passed to Marko Arnautovic, who struck past De Gea. "He's direct. They face each other in a tantalising encounter on Sunday after a week of Champions League and Europa League action.

One week after giving up 27 points in the first half and getting blown out as 16 1/2-point favourites in Buffalo, the Vikings gave up 28 before halftime against LA.

In fact, here are three reasons why the third-year quarterback just took a major leap when it comes to building a strong case for being part of the conversation since Goff is playing at a MVP level after the first month of the 2018 season. It's just a very odd one. "No ifs, ands or buts about it", Gurley said.

Kupp's second touchdown, a 19-yarder later in the second quarter, featured a throw over the heads of two Vikings defenders that transcended scheme. What has happened to Minnesota's defense over the past two weeks?

"I think the one throw to Kupp in the back of the end zone was unbelievable", McVay said via the team's official site. Like most of the night, Minnesota responded and Kirk Cousins hit Adam Thielen with a 45-yard touchdown pass and Latavius Murray for the two-point conversion to cut the deficit down to three, 31-28.

Said Kupp: "Jared was just able to put it out there perfectly".

Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have returned with even more chemistry with Goff after breaking out last season. If that's one where you do have to slow down, Barr is probably making that tackle.

The Rams look to put the National Football League on notice by improving to 4-0, as the Vikings look to tell us that last week was just fluke and nothing more. Following two touchdowns by the Rams to go up 28-17, Bailey booted a 39-yard field goal to get Minnesota within eight heading into the locker room. They do have 7 sacks, but outside of that, opposing teams have been having moving up field at will.

Kurt Warner, Mike Martz and the Greatest Show on Turf never put up as many yards passing in a single game as Jared Goff and Sean McVay did Thursday night.
