Baker cooks: Newcomer Mayfield rallies Rams past Vegas 17-16
Baker Mayfield threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Van Jefferson with 10 seconds to play to cap a 98-yard drive, and the Los Angeles Rams’ brand-new quarterback led two TD drives late in the fourth quarter of a shocking 17-16 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders.
Baker Mayfield leads an unbelievable comeback to push the Rams past the Raiders
Baker Mayfield has had a rough season, but he had a comeback for the ages on Thursday night. The Raiders led 16-3 in the fourth quarter and the Rams had done almost nothing on offense. But some bad penalties in the fourth quarter by the Raiders opened the door, and Mayfield led the Rams through it. The Raiders took possession in Rams territory and got a field goal to increase the lead to 16-3. A circus catch by Ben Skowronek got the Rams closer, and Mayfield's lofted pass to Jefferson put the Raiders away.wftv.com
Fantasy Football: Week 14 Los Angeles Rams vs. Las Vegas Raiders Thursday Night Football breakdown
Los Angeles tries to bet against Vegas without any future 'RAM'-ificationsI am deeply sorry about the “RAM"-ification pun in the title. [Watch Thursday Night Football on Prime Video: Sign up for a 30-day free trial]Pre-snap, the Chargers have five on the line. They're first in adjusted line yards after ending 2022 at the league average. The Chargers were the first team Las Vegas kept out of the box since Week 8.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups, Week 13: Top adds to help your playoff chances
It's a must-win week for many of us — not technically the fantasy playoffs just yet, but basically the same experience. We can't very well leave a player on the wire when he's seeing this sort of volume. But Knight ran impressively (and angrily) against Chicago; he and Ty Johnson might very well be the 1-2 punch for New York in this week's matchup at Minnesota. Both Hasty and Henderson deserve a look from fantasy managers this week, but this is not an empty-the-wallet situation. He's definitely on the 16-team and superflex radar.wftv.com
Fantasy Football Week 8 Wrap: Christian McCaffrey joins history with TD trifecta
San Francisco’s schedule starts easing up after the upcoming bye, when McCaffrey will return to being a weekly top-three fantasy back. Undrafted rookie Ronnie Rivers started at running back for LA, but no Rams RB should be sniffing fantasy lineups at this point. Pollard didn't even need 15 carries to accomplish the feat Sunday when both teams had 200+ rushing yards … I'll be comfortably ranking Khalil Herbert ahead of David Montgomery moving forward. D'Andre Swift had a TD catch, but fantasy managers expected more than five carries for six yards. The rookie wideout led Green Bay in targets and would be a fantasy must-start in Detroit next week should Allen Lazard miss another game.wftv.com
McCaffrey throws, catches, rushes for TDs, Niners rout Rams
Christian McCaffrey became the 11th player in NFL history with a rushing touchdown, a passing touchdown and a receiving touchdown in one game, and the San Francisco 49ers extended their regular-season mastery over the Rams to four full years with a 31-14 victory over Los Angeles.

(AP Photo/John Bazemore)GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida receivers Trevon Grimes and Kadarius Toney are skipping the Cotton Bowl to prepare for their NFL futures. Grimes and Toney made their announcements Monday on Twitter, leaving the program two days before No. They are the second and third Florida players to opt out of the bowl, following tight end Kyle Pitts. Pitts is expected to be a top-15 draft pick, and Grimes and Toney also could go in the early rounds. Toney might not be quite as fast as Grimes, but he's one of the shiftiest players in the country.
