Gurley confident after Rams' TNF win: 'We can't be beat right now'

The good news is the Vikings have three extra days to recover from the Rams game and prepare for their trip to Philadelphia. He made some wonderful throws, especially his first touchdown that floated over Rams cornerback Marcus Peters to Aldrick Robinson in the end zone. That team's really good, and we were lucky to come away with one tonight.

"It's a blessing. It's a blessing for sure", Gurley said of playing with so many weapons. "So, I don't know that that was going to change, regardless of how we did in the first four games".

We have a major matchup in the NFL tonight on Thursday night football. "But certainly, though, we want to get the "W" this week". The third-year signal caller completed 26-of-33 passes for 465 yards and five touchdowns.

Less than two-and-a-half minutes later, Goff hit Cooks down the middle for a 47-yard score. Cousins passed for 422 yards and three touchdowns, but Minnesota lost when Rams rookie defensive lineman John Franklin-Myers strip-sacked Cousins near midfield with 1:18 to play. I mean did you hear his comments about how hard it is to find a good pass rusher?

Yup, that's a passer rating of 158.3. Throwing more touchdowns than incompletions in week 2 vs. Denver, but the team as a whole is falling apart in the second half every week.

Goff became the first Rams quarterback to throw for more than 250 yards in the first half of a game since Kurt Warner did it in Week 16 of the 2001 season, when the Greatest Show on Turf was at its peak. Zimmer should chalk this one to the game and just try to improve. "No ifs, ands or buts about it", Gurley said.

Cousins: 95-of-139 (68.3%), 965 yards, seven touchdowns, two interceptions.

The Minnesota Vikings have been built around a stifling defense since Mike Zimmer was hired as head coach. "He throws the ball a lot better than I thought a year ago".

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.

Goff promptly surpassed his previous career highs for yards passing during a swift drive ending in Robert Woods' 31-yard TD catch, and the Rams' defense hung on while the offence went scoreless in the fourth quarter.

"Jared put it in about a six-inch box that only he could fit it into, " McVay said. So far this season, he's 25 of 38, on throws of 10 yards or more, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Smith was one of five Minnesota defensive players to make the Pro Bowl last season.

Though their defense is somewhat vulnerable due to injury, there's no question that the 4-0 Rams have planted the flag as the most risky team in the NFL. But thanks to the hiring of Sean McVay that resulted in the offense immediately making the necessary adjustments to get on the right track, Goff and the Rams have quickly become one of the most unsafe offensive units in all of football.
