Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph said the goal was to wear the Los Angeles Rams down. It certainly appears that mission was accomplished in the Vikings 24-7 win.

The offensive line kept quarterback Case Keenum from being sacked for a second straight game. Keenum was sacked once in week eight by the Cleveland Browns, the only sack the Vikings line has allowed dating back to halftime of week five's game in Chicago - a span of six-and-a-half games.
In addition, the line paved the way for 171 rushing yards - 95 coming from Latavius Murray. it's the seventh time the Vikings have gone over the 100-yard mark in rushing yards through ten games this season. They crossed the 100-yard mark just once all of last season.
The passing game was sharp again as well, as Adam Thielen's meteoric rise continues.
He made 6 catches for 123 yards against the Rams, including a 65-yard fourth quarter touchdown that gave the Vikings a 14-point lead.
Thielen is only the second Vikings receiver ever to clear the 900-yard mark (916) through the first ten games of a season. Randy Moss accomplished the feat twice.
