The Rams — led by a dominant performance on offense — held on to beat the 49ers in Thursday Night Football 41-39.

On offense, quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley shined, earning them several Week 3 award nominations. Goff was nominated as the Castrol Edge "Clutch Performer of the Week" for representing strength in key moments of the game, while Gurley was named a nominee for the Fed Ex "Ground Player of the Week."

In Thursday night's contest, Goff took command of the Rams offense, completing 22-of-28 passes for 292 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. In his third game of the season, Goff notched a 145.8 passer rating, one of the highest of his career.

On the ground, Gurley had three touchdowns in the first half alone — two rushing, one receiving. He finished the game with 149 yards from scrimmage including 113 yards rushing and 36 yards receiving. It marked the first time Gurley has gone over 100 yards rushing since 2015.

Both Goff and Gurley will count on fans to vote for this week's Clutch Performer and Ground Player of the Week. You can vote for the Fed Ex Ground Winner here and for Castrol Edge Clutch Performer here. Both winners will be announced Friday.
