Goff shared with the media during his post-game interview about getting ready to play Thursday night against the New England Patriots at home.


"It's always tough. Thursday nights are turned around quickly. We've consistently played well on Thursday nights, I believe, through our time here with the Rams. We'll have a plan, I'm sure, starting tomorrow and get ready. I saw what the Patriots did to the Chargers, so we'll have a challenge absolutely."


With the win, the Rams improved their record to (8-3) and will host the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football, and the Cardinals (6-6) will travel to play the New York Giants (5-7).
