Rams-Vikes Set for Thursday Night Tussle


The Los Angeles Rams will host the Minnesota Vikings for Thursday Night Football at the LA Memorial Coliseum.

The Rams are 3-0 for the first time since 2001, Jared Goff is playing like an upper-echelon quarterback, wide receivers Brandin Cooks, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have essentially been unstoppable and running back Todd Gurley II looks every bit as good this year as he did last year.

Defensively, they have played solid to downright dominant football while giving the offense as much time as needed to run away from opponents.

The Thursday Night Football showdown will mark the first time the Rams will wear their throwback uniforms in 2018, which also will be worn for subsequent home games at the Coliseum this season. The Rams throwback uniforms feature royal blue jerseys with yellow accents, yellow pants with blue and white stripes, and blue helmets with yellow horns worn by the team from 1973 through the 1999 season that culminated with a win in Super Bowl XXXIV.
