Drew Mahowald presents the 14th edition of the Skol Scale following the Minnesota Vikings’ impressive win over the Los Angeles Rams and discusses the Thanksgiving matchup with the Detroit Lions.

This Minnesota Vikings team is for real — especially when playing inside the friendly confines of U.S. Bank Stadium.

Mike Zimmer and his defensive unit completely shut down the NFL’s highest-scoring offense, allowing exactly zero points after the game’s first drive. The 19-year-old head coach for Los Angeles scripted a beautiful first drive for the Rams, but Zimmer delivered knockout punch after knockout punch of in-game adjustments in the remaining 55 minutes of the game.

The deafening stadium full of over 66,000 fans rattled sophomore sensation Jared Goff and the Rams. There were delay-of-game penalties, false starts and unnecessary timeouts used by the visiting team on what seemed like every drive. Los Angeles, which averaged over 32 points per game, scored just seven in U.S. Bank Stadium.

A strong second half performance lifts the Minnesota Vikings over the Los Angeles Rams.

The box score reveals a big game from the wide receiver, running back and quarterback. But what’s missing is the effort from the men in the trenches. In Sunday’s 24-7 victory over the Rams, both the Vikings offensive and defensive lines came up big.

The Vikings defense allowed a total of 45 rushing yards. Los Angeles running back Todd Gurley, who averaged 84 rushing yards per game entering the Week 11 matchup, ran for 37 yards on 15 carries (2.47 yards per carry).

The Vikings limited Rams quarterback Jared Goff to 225 yards on 23 of 37 (62%) passing with zero touchdowns and interceptions. The defense held Los Angeles to 254 yards of total offense. The group put constant pressure on Goff, including sacks by Danielle Hunter and Tashawn Bower and hits by Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks.
