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 Monday September 24th about your Los Angeles Rams.
WEEK 3 GRADE
The Rams improved to 3-0 on Sunday, beating the Chargers 35-23 behind quarterback Jared Goff's huge day.
On Monday, Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox graded the Rams' performance against the Chargers. Here's what Knox had to say about the Rams' passing grade.
"Even though the Rams had a second-half lead, they had to keep scoring. Goff and Co. rose to the occasion, and Goff ended up with one of his best games as a pro. He finished 29-of-36 for 354 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Todd Gurley did his part with 105 yards of hard running and a touchdown of his own."
"It was far from a perfect day, though. The Rams defense showed it still is susceptible to the run—it allowed an average of 7.1 yards per carry—and lost cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters to injury."

RAMS ENTER TNF EARLY FAVORITES
John Breech of CBS Sports broke down the early odds entering Week 4. The Rams open as seven-point favorites ahead of their Thursday Night Football game against the Vikings.
Vikings (1-1-1) at Rams (3-0), Thursday
Opening line: Rams -7
"Since Mike Zimmer took over in 2014, the Vikings are 20-9 ATS as an underdog, which is the third-best mark of any NFL team over that span (only the Patriots and Saints are better). The Vikings are also 17-8 ATS after a loss under Zimmer, which is the third-best mark of any NFL team in that time frame. Of course, they're going to have to overcome that whole flying west thing, so maybe betting on the Vikings isn't the best move. One reason to like the Rams is that they're one of just four teams that are 3-0 ATS this year (that number will jump to five if Tampa covers Monday night). These two teams played in 2017, with the Vikings covering as a one-point favorite in a 24-7 win."
