The #Minnesota Vikings just ran all over the #Los Angeles Rams on Sunday (Nov. 19). The two teams came into this Week 11 game with 7-2 records, but the Vikings were just too much for the NFC West leaders. Now, the Rams could be at risk of losing first place in the division, as the Seattle Seahawks can take over with a win against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night (Nov. 20).

This is the exact result that most of the CBS experts predicted would take place in Week 11. The Rams did start out the day well, scoring a touchdown on the opening drive of the game to take a quick 7-0 lead. The six-yard touchdown run by #Todd Gurley II seemed to indicate that the Rams were going to have a very easy time moving the ball against the Vikings.

That’s not what ended up happing.

Vikings dominate Rams in ground game

Latavius Murray led the Minnesota Vikings in rushing, going for 93 yards and two touchdowns on just 14 carries. Jerick McKinnon added another 49 yards on just 13 yards, as the front line of the Vikings completely controlled the game. Vikings quarterback Case Keenum completed 27-of-38 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown of his own, taking care of the ball when it really counted.

On the other side of the ball, Todd Gurley II finished with just 37 yards on 15 carries, though he did have that early touchdown to help fantasy football owners a bit. Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff completed 23-of-37 passes for 225 yards but didn’t get the ball in the end zone. That hurt both the Rams and any fantasy football owners who felt that he was going to be a huge Week 11 play.

Vikings with the best record in NFC?

The Minnesota Vikings have improved to 8-2 on the season and have a chance to share the best record in the NFC by the end of the weekend. The Philadelphia Eagles (8-1) have a tough game against the Dallas Cowboys, which could drop the team to 8-2. If the Eagles win, though, the Vikings will have to settle for the second-best record in the conference heading into Week 12. That’s a good position to be in at this point of the regular season.

The Los Angeles Rams drop to 7-3 and are at risk of losing first place in the NFC West. The Seattle Seahawks are right behind them at 6-3, with a game on Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons at home. The Seahawks also hold the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Rams after beating them earlier in the season. It will be very important for the Rams to bounce back with a tough home game against the Saints in Week 12. That game is on next Sunday (Nov. 26).
