NFL Power Rankings Week 5: Los Angeles Rams enter top 10

NFL Power Rankings Week 5: Los Angeles Rams enter top 10

Even Todd Gurley seems refreshed, topping 100-yards rushing last week for the first time since 2015 and scoring three touchdowns in a game.

Greg Zuerlein kicked a career-high seven field goals - all from 49 yards or closer - and Todd Gurley had a 53-yard catch-and-run touchdown among 215 total yards in a 35-30 victory on Sunday.

"The mindset (McVay) has of me being able to step up and be able to catch passes, it takes a lot of stress off everybody", Gurley said.

-PASSING OFFENSE: A - Once again, second-year quarterback Jared Goff was effective and consistent while completing 21 of 36 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns for a 98.7 passer rating. He has seven TD passes and one interception this season.

The Cowboys (2-2) are already a loss shy of their total from last season when Prescott, the 135th pick in Goff's draft, was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year for the top-seeded team in the NFC.

LIONS 14, VIKINGS 7: Anthony Zettel led a ferocious performance by Detroit's defense with two sacks, four hurries and a fumble recovery, as the Lions forced three turnovers while holding Minnesota scoreless in the second half. It goes without saying, but a consistent effort for the whole game probably produces a win yesterday. It was really good to get a win regardless of where it was.

"I think he'll only get better", Jones said on 105.3 The Fan's G-Bag Nation show [KRLD-FM]. After an extremely lackluster first half, the Cowboys were able to pull away from the Cardinals and seal a 28-17 victory. Yet, it wasn't enough to help the Cowboys beat the Rams.

Here's everything you need to know to watch the game, or follow along as we bring you the latest score, live updates, photos and video highlights in the comments section below. He went 10 for 12, for 139 yards, in that preseason debut for the Cowboys, then took over for the injured Tony Romo and led Dallas to a 13-3 record.

DUAL-THREAT GURLEY: Gurley joined Hall of Famers Jim Brown (1958, 1963) and Emmitt Smith (1995) as the only National Football League players with at least 575 scrimmage yards and seven touchdowns in the first four games. "Once we did that we were solid". He left Jerry's World a victor, and played like one, completing 21 of 36 passes, with two touchdowns and zero interceptions, matching last year's rookie QB monolith, Dak Prescott, pass for pass. The team also collected 189 rushing yards on 27 carries. "Tavon, I guess he's the mini-running back now and I'm the mini-receiver", Gurley said.

BACK IN COURT: Ezekiel Elliott, last year's National Football League rushing leader, had his third straight sub-100 game with 85 yards on 21 carries but did have two touchdowns. Especially considering they ran a three down-linemen, six defensive back set for the majority of the game against Arizona and it worked beautifully to stop the pass attack. Both times, Elliott took the ball to his mom in a field-level suite behind the end zone. It is imperative that the defensive line can get to Goff and keep him from finding a groove.

Zuerlein finished one field goal short of tying the single-game record by going a ideal 7-of-7. He had a 44-yarder on the final play of the first half, and the long was from 49. Seattle has been the king of the division, but the Rams have beaten them three consecutive times at home.
