By B. Duane Cross,

ATLANTA -- If you listen closely, the faint chant of NFL defensive coordinators can be heard: "Stop the insanity!"

St. Louis quarterback Kurt Warner continued his assault on the NFL record book, passing for 390 yards and four touchdowns as the Rams dismantled the San Diego Chargers 57-31. But Warner wasn't the only St. Louis QB throwing the rock Sunday. Trent Green also got in on the action, playing his first game since the 1999 preseason. He completed 3 of 4 passes for 75 yards and a TD.

Six receivers caught passes for the Rams, including three with 100-yard days: Isaac Bruce (167), Marshall Faulk (116) and Az-zahir Hakim (104).

However, of the four QBs who threw for 300-plus yards Sunday, Warner was the only one who chalked up a victory. Brian Griese, Jim Harbaugh and Brett Favre each hung an 'L' on the board.

Maybe the most impressive overall team offensive performance of the day was turned in by the Minnesota Vikings. Running back Robert Smith rambled for 134 yards and a touchdown, while receiver Randy Moss added 168 yards and three scores. For good measure, QB Daunte Culpepper was 17-of-29 passing for 269 yards and three TDs in the Vikings' 31-24 victory against the Detroit Lions.
