"If the Rams didn't resemble a Super Bowl outfit (or at least the premier team in the league) to you on "Thursday Night Football," they never will. Sure, you can single out the mass quantity of yardage allowed to the Vikings (446). Two things. First, Kirk Cousins played out of his mind for part of that game. Second, Rams CB Marcus Peters was definitely not 100 percent, while his cohort Aqib Talib was sidelined (and will continue to be). I said last week on both the radio and "The Power Rankings Show" on NFL Network that Jared Goff might be the top intermediate thrower in the NFL. Not sure anyone can disagree now. #SBLIII"

Rookie snaps leader: DE John Franklin-Myers, 98 snaps out of 230 (42.6 percent). The fourth-round pick out of Stephen F. Austin is coming off his most productive game, with a strip sack in the Thursday night win over the Vikings. -- Sopan Shah
