Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 17 vs ARI (13 / 20 / 120 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

The Rams appeared to just be content with losing this game and trying to get out of there without Goff getting hurt as he was under pressure seemingly every time he took a snap. The Rams only threw the ball 20 times with Goff before pulling him for the backup Sean Mannion in the second half. A lot of the pressure was Goff holding the ball too long and staring down receivers instead of getting rid of the ball.

2016 Week 16 vs SF (11 / 24 / 90 / 1 / 2 pass, 2 / 4 / 0 rush)

It has been trial by fire for Jared Goff after he took over for Case Keenum and the results have simply not been there. Goff threw one touchdown to backup tight end Tyler Higbee, but added two interceptions and could not consistently move the ball against the worst defense in the NFL. The touchdown pass came on a third and goal from the two-yard line. Goff went play action, dropped back, and waited until he could find Higbee over the middle. This put the Rams up 21-7 early in the 4th quarter. Goff did have to deal with losing his top receiving threat in Kenny Britt due to a shoulder injury, but even with him in the lineup, Goff was inaccurate and complacent. The Rams built a lead they felt comfortable with and then let up in the second half.

2016 Week 15 vs SEA (13 / 25 / 135 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Jared Goff continues to look like the rookie he is, but he is not getting much support from the offense around him. Key drops from Lance Kendricks on the first play of the game and then an easy touchdown dropped by Mike Thomas on the second drive highlight how the day went for Goff. The best pass of the night came on a 24-yard connection with Kenny Britt when Goff avoided the rush by stepping up in the pocket and threw a strike on the deep crossing route. Goff also missed an easy touchdown when he underthrew a wide open Brian Quick early in the first half. The scary moment came 4th quarter when a hit to the helmet knocked Goff out for the rest of the game. Richard Sherman delivered the decisive blow and he is no stranger to such plays as he has shown his entire career. If Goff is able to clear concussion protocol he will have a favorable matchup against San Francisco next week.

2016 Week 14 vs ATL (24 / 41 / 235 / 0 / 2 pass, 1 / 2 / 1 rush)

Jared Goff was put in an early hole today with the opening kickoff being fumbled and quickly turned into a touchdown. He managed to lead a very effective first drive to try and bring the Rams back even but was intercepted in the red zone and it was all downhill from there. Goff targeted Britt on a quick slant, but the ball tipped off the receiver's fingers as he was hit and was intercepted. It is hard to blame Goff for this one, but the ball was thrown into tight coverage and again shows that he is a rookie. Goff was later picked off when targeting Britt again later in the game, only this time it was returned 33-yards for a touchdown. Goff never saw Jones underneath and again tried to force the ball to Britt. To put the icing on the cake, Goff was later sacked by Vic Beasley, fumbled, and had the ball returned 21-yards for the final Falcons touchdown. Goff has been put in a very tough spot to lead a struggling franchise and after a game like today, the question has to be asked if the switch was made too soon? Goff faces an even tougher test against a vaunted Seattle secondary next week and could face similar results if changes are not made this week.

2016 Week 13 vs NE (14 / 32 / 161 / 1 / 2 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

The question can be asked now. Was the switch to Jared Goff made too early, and how will these early struggles affect his development? The rookie was wildly inaccurate in this one, completing less than 50% of his passes and tacking on 2 interceptions on the day. The only real highlight came on a 4th and 11 play where he found a wide-open Kenny Britt down the left side for 66 yards and then capped the same drive with a 1-yard touchdown to Britt for his only score. The first interception came on a pass dropped by Lance Kendricks the popped up in the air right to the defense. The second interception came on a ball tipped at the line and Goff being hit hard after release. Both interceptions were not totally his fault, but the sub 50% completion rate is not going to help win a lot of games. At this point in the season, there is no coming back from Goff and the Rams are going to have to struggle while he develops.

2016 Week 12 vs NO (20 / 32 / 214 / 3 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Goff looked like a quarterback deserving of that first overall pick in the first half today, but could not carry that over to the second half to overcome a vintage performance from Drew Brees. Goff connected on touchdowns to his top three targets in Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, and Lance Kendricks. However, he also accounted for one interception and a fumble lost. With a stout Rams defense, 21 points will keep Goff in most games but a Saints offense that was clicking and a few rookie mistakes put an end to this one early in the second half. Goff best play came on a beautiful 24-yard pass that fell right over the outside shoulder of Tavon Austin in the end zone for a touchdown. Goff also capitalized on a Brees fumble by finding Kenny Britt on a quick slant for 6-yards to give the Rams an early 14-7 lead. Goffís final touchdown came on a 15-yard pass to Lance Kendricks across the middle where the big tight end had to fight into the end zone. Goff looked poised and had outstanding pocket presence early in this one, but it all fell apart in the second half. With three tough matchups to come, Goff is going to have a lot of opportunities to throw the ball in coming weeks against the Patriots, Falcons, and Seahawks.

2016 Week 11 vs MIA (17 / 31 / 134 / 0 / 0 pass, 4 / 11 / 0 rush)

It was supposed to be the start of a new era with their franchise quarterback, and everything was playing to script until the fourth quarter. Goff played like a rookie quarterback who was afraid to make a mistake in this one and it showed. Goff completed just under 55% of his passes, threw the ball away several times, and rushed the ball to his check down receivers resulting in incompletions. The best thing Goff did all day was hand the ball off to Todd Gurley, but even that was not enough. Goff targeted his big receivers in Kenny Britt and Lance Kendricks but just does not have the time and chemistry with the starting offense. Goff has a favorable matchup against a New Orleans; secondary ranked towards the bottom of the league.
