You get excited for these games because it’s going to be future games, Rams running back Todd Gurley told reporters, referring to potential rematches with these teams.
Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth referred to the Eagles game as a measuring stick game, according to ESPN.com.
We are both Italian, so we have that in common, Garoppolo joked with reporters this week, referring to comparisons between him and Mondays. I think it might be a little early. We’ve got a good thing going right now. We’ve just got to keep working hard and keep improving every week and keep this thing going in the right direction.

With TV ratings that only seem to go up in an era of cord-cutting in which that is an anomaly, the NFL is living large these days.
The league can thank fantasy football for a lot of that, but don’t forget the personalities. It’s still a sport driven by quirky, compelling characters, and that group doesn’t just include players and coaches.
With apologies to Barbara Walters, here is The Post’s third annual (highly subjective) edition of the 50 most fascinating people in the NFL:
Von Miller, outside linebacker, Broncos (2015: NR): He always has been one of the league’s quirkier characters and best pass rushers, but Miller’s thoroughly dominant Super Bowl performance followed by his record-setting contract have put him front and center on the national stage. That’s especially true because the Broncos will be counting on him to carry their entire team once again.
That same year, Pats linebacker Ted Johnson told USA Today that an hour before game time, a list of the opposing team’s audibles 锟斤拷 the signals a QB would use at the line of scrimmage just before a snap to change the play 锟斤拷 would sometimes appear in his locker.

Tennessee quietly has built a strong roster, with plenty of draft picks in key roles. Conklin was named first-team All-Pro as a rookie, a tough feat to pull off. Everything hinges on quarterback Marcus Mariota, the No. 2-overall pick in 2015, but he looks like a future star.
The Colts fired GM Ryan Grigson because he was unable to build a championship team around star quarterback Andrew Luck, his first pick in 2012. Grigson landed both Luck and Hilton in that first draft, but did not have much to show for his drafts after that.
Houston has had some good first-round picks like Hopkins and Whitney Mercilus, but has not landed much Authentic Marcus Martin Jersey in the middle rounds. Jadeveon Clowney, the No. 1-overall pick in 2014, took a big step forward last year. If he realizes his potential, this ranking will improve.
