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

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

Then the Rams got a mismatch with Cooper Kupp against Barr, and Goff hit him for a 70-yard score. "You can utilize him in any way and because of just his overall poise and confidence and his demeanor, it helps me too".

"I mean, he kicked the flag, " Zimmer said.

Cousins threw two touchdown passes to Aldrick Robinson, who was playing in his second Vikings game after having been signed September 17. With Cook's availability still in question, Minnesota has to attempt to run the ball as much as the Rams to even keep this game close.

"Since returning home to Los Angeles two years ago, we have received a lot of feedback from our fans about their love for these iconic uniforms", Rams Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff said.

You can see the Rams fan smack a female Vikings fan in the face ... and then it gets insane.

Minnesota's Dan Bailey hit a 40-yard field goal with 3mins 46sec left for the only points of the fourth quarter.

The Vikings got the ball back with 2mins 20sec, but Los Angeles rookie John Franklin-Myers stripped Cousins of the ball near midfield.

"It's fun for us, personally", Goff said of his duel with Cousins. "I don't know if it's fun for the whole team, but it's cool". We've only got two losses, so I'm not anxious about that.

Cousins played well enough for the Vikings to win on Thursday, completing 36 of 50 passes for 422 yards and three touchdowns.

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer struggled to wrap his head around how his defense was embarrassed for a second straight week following a 38-31 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Goff was ideal, at least according to his passer rating of 158.3 in his third consecutive 300-yard game. Over the past three games, they've given up an average of 24 points in first halves.

Asked if he is concerned about possibly falling into a hole it will be hard to get out of, Zimmer said, "We are going to play a lot of really good teams here coming up. We're going to look at everything we're doing and get back to doing things correctly".

Robert Woods had a tremendous night on Thursday in Los Angeles. Minnesota's effort was futile against Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who completed 26 of 33 passes for 465 yards and five touchdowns and had a flawless passer rating of 158.3. "It's nearly like you're throwing it away and Cooper did a great job saving them a little bit of room, and Jared put it in about a six-inch box that he could only fit it into".

In a Week 2 shutout of the Arizona Cardinals, Goff let loose on a 57-yard throw over the middle to Brandin Cooks.

The Vikings scored on their first three drives and four of six in the first half, but the Rams scored touchdowns on four of their five possessions.

Minnesota defensive end Everson Griffen posted a message on Instagram expressing his gratitude for support from his team and family.

"Jared's the one making the plays", McVay said.

Things only got worse for the Vikings against the Rams, with cornerback Trae Waynes missing the second half with a concussion.

Rams linebacker Dominique Easley was inactive with a knee injury.

First halves continue to be a nightmare for the Vikings.
