"Clearly the top team in pro football. Which means all those analysts and colleagues of mine who told me I was putting too much stock in Jared Goff's performance last year ... Well, I don't know what to tell you. His accuracy continues to impress. On Sunday, he darn near averaged 10 yards per throw -- an incredible rate. Meanwhile, the defense took Philip Rivers' best shots, ultimately producing stops when absolutely imperative. That was the difference in the game. There was also better red-zone efficiency and goal-to-goal performance from Los Angeles. Well, the home Los Angeles team. You know, the one that plays on the non-soccer pitch. Gosh, this L.A. football thing gets confusing."

"Despite a formidable front that includes Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, the Rams are allowing 5.0 yards per rush this season, ranked 27th in the NFL." -- Doug Clawson

"The Super Bowl favorite has delivered, so far. They'll have to deliver on Thursday night without both starting cornerbacks."

"The Rams are absolutely stacked offensively. Load up the box, and Jared Goff will pick you apart. Play soft and Todd Gurley will bludgeon you into submission.

The defense is similarly loaded, but in that regard, there may just a problem brewing. Per ESPN.com's Lindsey Thiry, starting cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters both left Sunday's win with injuries—and the team has a short turnaround before Thursday night's big showdown with the Vikings."

"They're on pace to outscore opponents by 352 points (22 per game), though that could change with Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib on pace to miss a few games."
