The Vikings shielded the Rams from making enormous plays at the rate they were usual to.
However, they sufficiently made of their own to win, and to put forth a defense as maybe the best group in the NFC.
The Vikings pummeled the Rams every minute of every day, enhancing to 8-2 and serving notice that they’re to be considered important notwithstanding their unpredictable quarterback circumstance.
Case Keenum was again something beyond proficient and worthy, finishing 27-of-38 goes for 280 yards and no turnovers. He likewise discovered Adam Thielen for a 65-yard catch-and-run touchdown in the final quarter as they pulled away. That left previous first-rounder Teddy Bridgewater standing and looking for the second in a row week since returning from his knee damage, and it’s difficult to legitimize taking Keenum off the field right now.
Combined with running back Latavius Murray, who had 95 yards and two touchdowns, and the Vikings did what’s necessary to conquer some sudden slip-ups. Kicker Kai Forbath missed a couple of field objectives, after he entered the diversion 37-of-38 on field objectives there, since marking with Minnesota a year ago.
Be that as it may, for the most part it was about the way their safeguard pestered Jared Goff and the Rams’ third-positioned offense for the duration of the day.
After a diversion opening 70-yard touchdown drive and 54 on the good for nothing last one, the Rams oversaw only 130 yards on the eight belonging in the middle. Vikings cautious end Everson Griffen didn’t get a sack (breaking a dash of nine straight recreations and abandoning him one diversion shy of a group record), however there was steady weight. Cooper Kupp bumbling at the Vikings’ 1-yard line was symbolic of their day, as they couldn’t gain by the few possibilities they had.
Goff completed 23-of-37 for 225 yards, and gave off an impression of being getting consideration from the group’s athletic preparing staff amid the diversion. With wide recipient Robert Woods hauled away late, they’ll have a few circumstances to screen, as they tumble to 7-3.
