Goff and Cousins got together at midfield afterward, exchanging compliments about their eye-catching performances and their bright futures ahead.
Let's take a closer look at how the two teams have fared now that we're entering the fourth week of the National Football League season. In the first half of this game alone, Goff had three touchdowns of more than 20 air yards. He has 7 catches in three straight games and 80-plus yards in all four. WR Brandin Cooks has 14 catches for 249 yards in past two games.
Goff completed 26 of 33 passes as the Rams (4-0) continued their best start since 2001 when they won their first six games en route to their most recent Super Bowl berth. As much as they said they were taking the game like any other week, I think the players exhaled a little too much and thought they could win on talent alone. "I mean, it can".
The Vikings drove to their own 48-yard line when Rams rookie defensive lineman John Franklin hit Cousins' right arm, forcing a fumble defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh recovered for the Rams at the Minnesota's 44-yard line for the game's only turnover. Don't forget, Cousins was facing a very good defense himself. "It was some misdirection plays, similar to what we've gotten before".
"It's a bad situation to be in, but we can't get down on ourselves", Diggs said.
NOTES: McVay declined to confirm the Rams will stick with K Sam Ficken after he missed a 28-yard field goal attempt in the fourth quarter. Throwing more touchdowns than incompletions in week 2 vs. Denver, but the team as a whole is falling apart in the second half every week.
"I took a five-step drop, go to throw to my shallow cross to Adam, put it in his inside shoulder and the ball, you know, got hit", Cousins said.

"I'm concerned. I've been concerned all year long".
One week after giving up 27 points in the first half and getting blown out as 16 1/2-point favourites in Buffalo, the Vikings gave up 28 before halftime against LA.
"We did not play well defensively, " Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. On Thursday, the Rams moved the ball at will, and no matter where Goff put the ball someone was wide open. "We've never been, probably anywhere I've ever been, this poor in pass coverage. Everybody's got to handle their job and we have to out there and get back to running around and having fun, knowing we're going to make plays".
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.
Kupp also caught a 70-yard TD pass in the second quarter, finishing with the first multi-touchdown game of his two-year career.
Goff was hitting everyone.
The Rams scored touchdowns on three of their first four second-quarter possessions.
