We're halfway home in tonight's Thursday night football game between the Rams and Vikings. What a half it has been.

The Rams lead the Vikings 28-20 at intermission. Quarterback Jared Goff has been sensational, tossing four touchdowns, including a pair to Cooper Kupp.

Minnesota is hanging in there, thanks in large part to Kirk Cousins. Cousins is 25-of-32 for 255 yards and a pair of TD tosses to Aldrick Robinson. He actually should have had one more scoring pass, if not for an errant call by an official.

Who will win this one? Well, ESPN's win probability favors the Rams heavily.

Heading into the third quarter, the Rams have a 90.1 percent chance of winning, per the computer.
