The Minnesota Vikings face a tough test on Thursday when they try to get their season back on track by traveling to the Los Angeles Coliseum to face the undefeated Rams, just four days after suffering a humiliating 27-6 defeat at the hands of the previously winless Buffalo Bills, as ESPN reported, in an NFL Thursday Night Football game that will live stream from L.A.
Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, who inked a then-record $84 million, three-year contract as free agent in the offseason per SpoTrac, threw for 296 yards but also tossed an interception to go with one touchdown, as Bills rookie signal caller Josh Allen ultimately outdid the veteran, who also surrendered two fumbles and tossed for a mere 44 yards in the first half.
The Vikings acknowledged the importance of Thursday’s game, as they come in with a 1-1- record that includes a 29-29 tie against the Green Bay Packer in Week Two, as Pro Football Reference records.
“We’re all looking forward to the L.A. game and showing everybody that we can bounce back,” Vikings defensive end Stephen Weatherly told the Twin Cities’ Pioneer Press. “We want to put (the Buffalo game) as far behind us as possible.” Weatherly called the matchup with the Rams “a tone setter.”
