Ramming the record book

Last Thursday night the Los Angeles Rams battled with the Minnesota Vikings. Both team’s defense seemed to be absent from this battle. In fact, the two teams tallied 69 combined points. This truly was a battle of explosive offenses, together there was a total of six punts. Quarterbacks Jared Goff and Kirk Cousins were tearing their opponents secondary. They tossed for a total combined yardage of 1,002.

This game wasn’t only energized from the offense, but the players got to play the game with hardly any interruptions. There were only six penalties from the two teams during the match. This is truly a game that the fans want to see on Thursday Night Football.

Goff had himself a game. He tore through the previous record for a quarterback on Thursday night. Goff had 465 total yards through the air. He also managed to toss five touchdowns throughout the night. Finally, and most impressively, he snagged himself a perfect passer rating.

The L.A. Rams look to be the best team in the NFL right now. This is easy to say after what they did to what usually is considered to be one of the better NFL defenses. We may consider that Buffalo also tore the Vikings up just the week before. The Chiefs do require credit as well. Their newly appointed quarterback has been setting records this year too. He set the three game record for passing touchdowns in week two with 10, and now he is sitting at 13 total at the end of week three. A game of these teams going head-to-head this season will be one to watch. The two go toe-to-toe on Monday, Nov. 19 in L.A. It’ll be interesting to see these explosives offenses tangle with each other.

As the season progresses, keep an eye on the NFL. There has been a lot of strange things happening so far. The Miami Dolphins are leading their division while the Patriots sit at the bottom of the standings. Though they did manage to bounce back smacking Miami 38-7. The Cleveland Browns did lose, but looked pretty good doing it. Well as good as you can losing 45-42 in overtime. Hopefully Cleveland will continue to get better, it would be great to see this franchise turn around their luck.
