Rams QB Jared Goff, who grew up near San Francisco, started a GoFundMe page to help those affected by California wildfires. Seeing what J.J. Watt did for Hurricane Harvey victims "gave me an idea," he said.

Rams coach Sean McVay said DB Lamarcus Joyner, who missed the last three weeks with a hamstring injury, will play on Sunday "if everything goes according to plan." ILB Mark Barron (thumb) and S Cody Davis (thigh) sat out practice, but the Rams have a chance to be fully healthy near the midway point of the season. "Very fortunate," said McVay, who credited the training staff.

One thing Rams QB Jared Goff would like to improve on from Sunday is "throwing the ball down the field." "I was disappointed we didn't hit any of those deep balls," he said. Asked specifically about connecting with Sammy Watkins (10 targets and 2 catches the last 3 weeks), Goff said: "We've done it before; I don't think we need to change anything. Just continue to get reps, try to dial it in, and be more consistent. But we've done it before."

FPI not sold on Rams just yet

The Sean McVay era is off to a roaring start in Tinseltown, but ESPN's FPI suggests tempering expectations. Despite leading the NFL in points per game (29.8), the Rams have less than a 30 percent chance of reaching the postseason by the current metrics.

The Rams' special teams contributed 17 Expected Points Added in Sunday's win over the Jaguars, the highest EPA total for any special teams unit in the last 10 years. The Rams got a kickoff return (by Pharoh Cooper) and a blocked punt (by Cory Littleton) for a touchdown. Greg Zuerlein made a 56-yard field goal, and Johnny Hekker pinned four punts inside the opponents' 20.

On the road again, and the Rams don't mind

The Rams are 3-0 on the road this year, so a "home game" in London with preceding practices in Jacksonville isn't too much of a bad thing.

Pharoh Cooper on his first NFL TD

Rams wide receiver and return specialist Pharoh Cooper talks about running the kickoff back for his first NFL touchdown on Sunday, playing with Jared Goff and the high scoring offense this season.

Rams coach Sean McVay, asked what he still needs to see from Jared Goff: "You just want to see consistency, playing each play as its own entity. There were a couple times -- and I think he'd be the first to tell you this -- where whether it be in our play-action game, or some of the third downs, where he has to make better decisions with the football or go where the coverage dictates based on his progression. But what I will say -- and something you can't coach -- that's really impressive is that no matter what happens over the course of a game, he remains even-keeled."

Sean McVay was walking out of the Rams' facility at 10 pm on Thursday, six hours after practice ended, and saw Aaron Donald's car in the lot. He went into the D-line room and caught Donald watching film of how offensive linemen set on pass plays. "When you have the talent that also matches up with the motivation, the appreciation for the process, the preparation and the approach, you get special players like him," McVay said. "... You just walk away and say, 'I'm sure glad that guy's on my team.'"

Rams TE Derek Carrier cleared the concussion protocol. Everybody else came out of Sunday's game fine. RB Lance Dunbar is also healthy and eligible to come off PUP, but the team can also delay that process by a week or two in order to preserve depth. Rams continue to be very fortunate on the injury front. The only real question is DB Lamarcus Joyner, who has missed the past three games with a bad hamstring.

The Rams' defense is starting to dominate

Giving up a 75-yard touchdown run right out of the gate stunned them, but the Rams recovered Sunday and continued a trend of stifling opponents.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Rams ILB Alec Ogletree, on the defense: "From Day One, I knew we could be a top defense. It's a matter of everybody getting the system down and keep playing, each and every week, and just getting better in practice. I feel like we've been doing that lately, and it's starting to show."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Connor Barwin, whose Rams will stay here until flying to London on Thursday: "I did not wanna stay in Jacksonville and have a loss. I can talk about it now. It would've been miserable staying in Jacksonville having a loss. It's so weird anyway, not getting on a plane. But it's really nice we got the win."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Rams DT Aaron Donald, on settling down after Leonard Fournette's 75-yard touchdown run on the Jaguars' first snap: "It's a long game. If you let that hurt you, and keep thinking about that, it'll be an even longer game."
