The LA Rams defense has held the Minnesota Vikings to three points in the first half, with Travin Howard picking off Kirk Cousins out of the end zone to preserve a Rams lead. LA is up 13-3 at halftime, as Sony Michel has scored the game’s only touchdown.

Matt Gay is two-of-two on field goals, confirming himself as a Pro Bowl kicker.

But the play of Matthew Stafford is again uneven; Stafford’s ugly interception to linebacker Anthony Barr helped Minnesota get their only points of the first half. A solid tackle by Taylor Rapp of Adam Thielen on third down kept the Vikings from getting into the end zone.

It hasn’t been a quiet day for Cooper Kupp either. The future all-pro has six catches for 51 yards, complementing Michel’s 67 yards on the ground with a 6.1 YPC average. Stafford is 15-of-25 for 120 yards against his former NFC North rivals.
