Rams-Vikings has major playoff implications

Lost in the unexpected controversy regarding FOX’s misguided decision to invite an active player to work a game involving a future opponent is the reality that the Jared Goff/Case Keenum reunion game between the 7-2 Rams and the 7-2 Vikings has tremendous significance in the NFC playoff picture.

Jared Goff and Case Keenum have come a long way from last year

As it turns out, the problem with the Rams last year wasn’t the quarterbacks, since they both look pretty good now.

FOX declined to move Greg Olsen to a different game

Restricting the access of Panthers tight end Greg Olsen to Vikings practice and production meetings may be good enough for FOX, but it’s not good enough for the Vikings.

Greg Zuerlein wins second weekly NFC special teams honor of year

The Rams’ offensive turnaround gets a lot of the credit for the team’s 7-2 record and there’s no arguing that the unit is leaps and bounds ahead of where it was in the final years of Jeff Fisher’s tenure as the team’s head coach. Jared Goff and company don’t finish all of their drives in [more]

FOX: Greg Olsen’s pregame access will be restricted

Apparently, the Vikings have made their concerns about Panthers tight end Greg Olsen calling this weekend’s game against the Rams known to FOX.

The Rams aren’t just winning football games, they’re making it look easy.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff didn’t even need to play the whole game to win a weekly award. Goff was named NFC offensive player of the week, after he torched the Giants Sunday.
