The Rams held their second practice of the week on Thursday afternoon, ahead of the team’s Week 11 matchup with the Vikings. Los Angeles will hold one more session at Cal Lutheran on Friday before flying to the midwest this weekend. Here are a few notes from Thursday.

Rams Take Pride in Leading NFL in Takeaways

Heading into Week 11, the Rams are leading the NFL with 19 takeaways. Head coach Sean McVay often says that besides points, the turnover margin is the biggest indicator of wins and losses in the NFL. And that’s a message that’s clearly coming from more than just him.

Rams’ high-scoring offense is getting a boost from turnover-producing defense

It’s amazing no fights took place. From the first day of training camp, Rams defenders focused on turnovers. Even in innocuous, no-contact drills, linemen and linebackers would reach in and attempt to rip the ball away from offensive teammates.

Even Case Keenum can joke about the improbable way Sunday’s Vikings-Rams matchup has unfolded. “I think one of my friends said it, ‘Just like everybody predicted. Case Keenum with the 7-2 Minnesota Vikings going up against the 7-2 Rams,'” said Keenum, the Vikings’ quarterback.

Rams have one of the NFL’s most underrated defensive linemen. He’s not named Aaron Donald.

For years, Michael Brockers has done the yeoman’s work on the Rams’ DL that doesn’t show up on the box score.
