RAMS IN SPOTLIGHT

OFFENSE

Wide receiver Cooper Kupp caught nine passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns, including one for 70 yards. On Kupp’s first scoring play, he lined up on the left side, then broke across the field and up the right sideline. Jared Goff hit him in stride for the touchdown. He also scored on a 19-yard pass.

DEFENSE

Tackle Aaron Donald pressured Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins throughout the first three quarters, barely missing sacks. But Donald, who signed a $135-million extension before the season, got to Cousins early in the fourth quarter for his first sack of the season and added another one late in the game.
