What We're Saying: Top Quotes of the Week

The Rams are just two days away from their Week 14 matchup with the Eagles at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. As L.A. gets set to take on the leaders of the NFC East, check below for the top five quotes of the week:

On if someone would've told him last year that Goff and Wentz would both be leading their teams in their division, what his reaction would be:

"I don't think anybody would've probably believed that. Philly had a great year…well they started off like 5-0 and then after that things didn't go as planned and last year, things didn't go as planned for us. Just to see the turnaround for both organizations and it started with the quarterback play. Goff's being a great leader, been able to go out there and execute and Wentz has been playing lights out as well on the opposite side. You just feel good and feel proud for two young guys to be able to go through what they did their rookie year and then to be able to come back their second year and have their accomplishments."

  • Running back Todd Gurley

On if he's been able to watch Carson Wentz play much this year:

"Yeah, actually, a lot of our film has crossed over, so we do actually watch a lot of their offense. Yeah, like I said, he's been tremendous this year. Everything he's been doing, especially his ability to extend plays and make plays outside the pocket. I know that's always something he was always really good at and is continuing to get really good at. A lot of respect for him and what he's done. He's one guy who has really worked his way into everything he's earned. He's deserved everything he's earned up to this point and expecting him to continue to keep getting better. He's a really fun guy to watch."

  • Quarterback Jared Goff

**On if it's good or bad for a young team like this to go into huge game with or without previous experience:

"I think it's great. The opportunity that we have is because of what both teams have done. You look at our players, they've done a great job putting ourselves in a position to continue to play important football games this late in the year. When you've got a great team like this, 10-2 coming in here, our guys do a great job, they respect the opponent, but they have a confidence and a swagger that I think we're excited about the opportunity to be a part of a game like this. We know it's going to take a great effort in all three phases to give ourselves a chance, but I think the way that they've handled things, we don't really take much of a different approach except for just getting ready for a great Philadelphia Eagles football team. I know our* *guys will be excited to compete in front of a great crowd at the Coliseum on Sunday."

  • Head coach Sean McVay

On playing meaningful football this late in the season:

"I'm loving it. We've got a lot more opportunities to go out there, and come third quarter, fourth quarter — we've got opportunities to rush the passer now because it's closer games. Or we're up, and we get to pin our ears back and get after the quarterback. So anytime you're winning, you're going to feel good about it. But we've got a lot of good players who are still hungry. And we're not comfortable yet."

  • Defensive tackle Aaron Donald

"I mean for us to be in this position this late in the season to have a game of this caliber it shows all the work we've put in. Because usually in the past by this team we'd be thinking about the off season and things like that, so it feels good to have this feeling right now."

  • Defensive lineman Michael Brockers

On his excitement about playing against his brother Jaylen, an Eagles' safety:

"Oh yeah, of course. I feel like he knows me and I know him so if I get to go up against him, I think I'm going to win a couple battles and he might win one or two. But for me it's really about going out there to compete and have fun. If he's out there I have to do my job and I'm pretty sure if he sees me creeping across the middle of the ball, he;s going to knock me out. So, at the end of the day I have to do my job." 

  • Wide receiver Sammy Watkins
