With the news that running is no longer the only thing you can do to get your mind off the disease, we have been busy running and trying to figure out if there are any health benefits to running.As a runner, you may be able to tell the difference between your brain and your muscles, or if you are still developing your ability to think and write, or whether you have a hard time with the weather.But...
Rams fans will remember the way they danced after the victory over the Falcons in Week 6, but this time it’s not a festive party in the city centre but on the sidelines.
A Rams-Rams rivalry that has been simmering since their first meeting in 2010 has finally boiled over after an unexpected win over the Rams.
The Rams have been without leading receiver Kenny Britt (concussion) and running back Todd Gurley (groin) for most of the game and while Britt has been out, the Rams have a legitimate running game.
They’ve gained 6.7 yards per carry and are averaging 2.9 yards per rush on the ground.
“This team has a lot of talent and is in a good spot right now,” Rams coach Sean McVay said.
“They’ve been playing well.
I can’t stress this enough. “
We need them to do well.
I can’t stress this enough.
You can’t have good games without good players.
I think they’ve done a great job of it.”
Rams running back DeMarco Murray will get the start after he missed his third consecutive game with a hamstring injury.
He’ll also be the Rams’ leading rusher after adding 2,092 yards to his previous career-high of 2,106.
He leads the NFL with 25 touchdowns, but he’s the only one to rush for fewer than 300 yards in a season.
His 1,842 yards from scrimmage rank third in the NFL.
The two-time Pro Bowler has scored two touchdowns in the last two games, including a 42-yard touchdown run in the Rams win over Jacksonville on Monday night.
His 3.5 sacks are also tops in the league.
The rookie has carried the ball more than any other player in the division and has caught seven passes for 92 yards, including an 11-yarder in the first quarter that helped set up the winning score.
“It’s all a matter of how you respond,” Rams quarterback Jared Goff said.
The game will be streamed live on NFL Network and the Rams can also stream it on ESPN2.
The last time the Rams faced the Rams was a Week 7 game at home in 2013, when they were the NFC West champions.
In that game, Goff completed 23 of 31 passes for 251 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
Rams fans are also hoping for another win over an NFC West rival.
The Vikings (1-4) are 3-0 on the road this season and are coming off a win over a Dallas Cowboys team that was expected to be good for a wild-card spot.
The Cowboys are 7-1 at home and have allowed the fewest points in the NFC.
Dallas leads the NFC North with a 6-3 record.
The Packers (1 – 2) are coming into their bye week after dropping a home game to the Saints last week.
The Saints are 6-2 at home, but they’ve only allowed eight points in their last three games.
The team is 1-7 in its last four meetings with the Rams, winning both of them in 2016.
“I think we played really well in the second half of the first half,” said quarterback Brett Hundley, who completed 21 of 31 pass attempts for 259 yards and a touchdown.
“There was some nice things, too.
We ran the ball pretty well.
We just didn’t get the ball out of our hands.”
The Vikings are coming in ranked second in the conference and third in total offense.
Minnesota has allowed a league-low 15.3 points per game in the two games.
That includes a season-low seven points in a 28-7 win over Philadelphia on Saturday.
The Eagles scored 20 points in overtime and lost 28-24.
The win gives the Vikings a six-game win streak, the longest in the playoff era.
The only other teams to have a six game winning streak in the playoffs are the 2008 Eagles (seven) and the 2009 Cardinals (five).
