Rams quarterback Jared Goff passed for 465 yards and five touchdowns while completing 78.8 percent of his passes (26-33.) Lastly, Goff posted a ideal quarterback rating of 158.3, while Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks - all gained at least 100 receiving yards. The Rams had three plays of at least 47 yards, two ending in touchdowns.
"It was just great command by him". "I think he's having fun". Cousins was remarkably accurate and Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs really might be the best receiving tandem in the league. But against the Rams, a team vying with the Chiefs for the title of Most Explosive Offense Attack in Pro Football, a different level of explosiveness is required. Aaron Donald recovered the fumble with 1:18 to go and Los Angeles ran out the clock. "You work for that".
McVay was Cousins' offensive coordinator in Washington before he became Goff's head coach on the West Coast last season. With that throw and several more of similar brilliance, Goff turned a phenomenal first half into the biggest game of his career.
"I was sacked up about that one because that was one we kind of had tweaked with during the week", Goff said. "I don't know if it's fun for the whole team, but it's cool". We left a bunch of guys open. Goff was putting up ridiculous numbers no matter who was on the field for the Vikings, proliferating the ball to everyone from wide receivers to running backs. The former No 1 pick has three consecutive 300-yard games during the Rams' ideal start. "I'm not going to take anything away from their scheme".
Despite coming up against last season's top-ranked Minnesota defense, the Rams managed to rack up 557 yards and 38 points, with Goff leading the way in a tremendous outing.
On a night of high-octane offenses, the Rams had 556 total yards and the Vikings gained 446.

He was also critical of several USA attempts to tighten United Nations sanctions on North Korea in recent months. The war ceased with an armistice rather than a peace treaty in 1953.
"We didn't help him with the backside", Zimmer said of the defense on the play. I've not ever had a team that's been this poor in pass coverage. "We are going to have to look at everything". Rhodes was called for defensive holding and then kicked the penalty flag, drawing an unsportsmanlike penalty and causing Zimmer to pull Rhodes off the field.
Both offences came out firing in front of a lively Coliseum crowd that included a healthy throng of purple-clad fans enjoying the Vikings' first game in Los Angeles since 1993. He returned later in the first half. They saw a show from Cousins, who hit Aldrick Robinson for two first-half scores.
Goff found Kupp with two lovely TD throws in the first half, the first hitting Kupp in stride on a 70-yard sprint, and the second eluding two Vikings and dropping into Kupp's hands deep in the end zone.
"Jared put it in about a 6-inch box that only he could fit it into", McVay said.
Goff again found the second-year receiver in the second quarter, when Goff rolled out to his right, felt pressure and dropped a pass into the back corner of the end zone for a waiting Kupp.
Even with the Vikings deactivating DE Everson Griffen - who is undergoing mental-health evaluation - for Thursday's game, and with CB Trae Waynes (concussion) knocked out after halftime, it's clear this is no passing issue until something gets fixed.
