Each weekday, theRams.com will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. Here's a look at what's out there for Friday October 12th about your Los Angeles Rams.
GOFF TOP UNDER 25
Bleacher Reports' Brad Gagnon ranked the NFL's top 10 quarterbacks under the age of 25 on Friday.
Rams quarterback Jared Goff just missed the top spot on Gagnon's list, and is ranked No. 2 behind the second-year Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Here's what Gagnon had to say about L.A.'s 23 year old signal caller:
It's amazing how far Jared Goff has come in two years. His rookie season was a disaster, but the former Cal star posted a triple-digit passer rating while leading the league with 12.9 yards per completion as a sophomore in 2017.
That was part of a loaded offense that led the NFL in scoring in McVay's first season, but Goff is proving in Year 3 that 2017 was no fluke. The league's second-highest-rated passer has completed 72.3 percent of his passes while leading the league with 1,727 passing yards through five weeks.

WEEK 6 PICKS
ESPN's 'Nation' Reporters' picks for Week 6 are in, and both Lindsey Thiry and Jeff Legwold are taking the Rams in what's expected to be an unseasonably cold matchup against the Broncos in Denver.
Here's ESPN's Football Power Index projection for the matchup and each reporter's take:
Lindsey Thiry's pick: The Rams anticipate their starting offense will be intact, with receivers Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp expected to clear concussion protocol and play against the Broncos. But the Rams' playbook -- and their explosive offense averaging 34.6 points per game -- could still be altered in Denver, with freezing temperatures and snow showers in the forecast. Rams 28, Broncos 14
Jeff Legwold's pick: For a defense that just surrendered 323 yards rushing and 34 points to the Jets, this might not be the matchup the Broncos were hoping for. But as coach Vance Joseph put it: "Nobody's stopped them and now it's our turn to try." The Rams lead the league in total offense, are third in scoring offense and haven't been held to fewer than 33 points in a game all season. If Von Miller and the defense don't have their best effort of the season and the offense can't hold the ball, this one could get ugly. Rams 31, Broncos 23
FPI win projection: LAR, 76.8 percent. The Rams have the highest offensive efficiency (93.9) by any team through five games in a season since our tracking began in 2006. And the Denver defense is not what it once was after a tough start to the season, ranking 27th in the league in defensive efficiency.
