Zimmer, Vikings scrambling for solutions to suddenly shaky D

Goff's five TD passes lead unbeaten Rams past Vikings

NFL: Jared Goff passes for 465 yards and five touchdowns as Rams trump Vikings

"The offense scored 31 points or something last night", he said. But Minnesota needs to erase last week's Bills game from their memory banks ASAP.

The third and perhaps biggest challenge for Zimmer will be how to reroute his team from their awful performance last Sunday against Josh Allen and the Bills. On top of that, Buffalo was without LeSean McCoy who is one of the best running backs in the league.

Goff picked apart the Vikings' secondary in the first half with one pinpoint throw after another.

The Rams will have a new uniform look in 2020 when their new stadium in Inglewood opens, Demoff said. Minnesota's backs haven't wowed anyone due to their emphasis through the air, but you want to keep defenses honest and respect the run.

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. This was a sharp contrast compared to the previous week against the Packers, where Cousins threw for over 400 yards in the 29-29 tie.

According to the FPI, Los Angeles has nearly an 80 percent chance of winning.

After Rams kicker Sam Ficken missed a 28-yard field goal that would have given the Rams a 13-point lead with 8:21 to play, Vikings kicker Dan Bailey made a 40-yarder with 3:50 remaining to cut the lead to 38-31. The only thing that has gone wrong is that Greg Zuerlein is out with a groin injury, so their nearly automatic kicker isn't available.

Kavanaugh accusers’ lawyers question FBI’s investigation so far
The focus, he said, will be on making sure voters understand the importance of the Senate in selecting Supreme Court justices. Concerns: Collins' initial concerns centered around whether Kavanaugh would overturn the landmark abortion ruling Roe vs.


"I'm very grateful for having crossed paths with him", Cousins said. But when he is pressured, he tends to make mistakes. I mean did you hear his comments about how hard it is to find a good pass rusher?

The Rams had three wideouts with 10-plus yards receiving. Since both are established in their own right, their matchups can be considered as a wash on who has the advantage. He has stopped forcing throws and making the ill-advised passes, instead putting it in a spot where only his receivers can catch the ball.

McVay's second priority has got to be finding a way to get Gurley past the bulls on Minnesota's defensive line, and once he does, then finding ways to get away from linebacker Anthony Barr. I trust Cooper and he ran right through it. Goff finished 26 of 33 with a flawless 158.3 passer rating for the Rams (4-0), who won their third home game in 12 days. If Cook is back, expect 15-20 carries for at least 70 yards on the ground. Neither Rams' Malcolm Brown nor Minnesota's Latavius Murray have put up big numbers. "This team has a chance to be really, really good".

"Like coach says, we don't feel pressure, we apply it".

Goff found Kupp with two handsome 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.
