2. Goff does great spreading the football around
First off, let’s give some special recognition for Jared Goff‘s impressive nine-yard touchdown run before halftime to increase the Los Angeles Rams lead to 20-0 since nobody saw that coming at all, especially not the defense of the Arizona Cardinals. But besides that big touchdown run by the Rams quarterback, let’s talk about how great of a job Goff did when it comes to spreading the football around on offense that led to a big day in the 33-0 win.
While Robert Woods led all Los Angeles receivers with five catches for 59 yards, it was Cooper Kupp who stepped up the most in the passing game after the rookie hauled in four passes for 51 yards to go along with a touchdown. And to top it off, Kupp led all Rams receivers with 10 targets on the afternoon, as he caused all sorts of problems throughout the afternoon for the Cardinals on defense.
Of course, the one receiver that everybody wants to talk about, Sammy Watkins, had a solid day for the most part as well after catching three passes for 42 yards. The No. 1 wideout of the Rams may not have displayed monster numbers, but at the end of the day, his presence alone helped open up the way for other receivers, and most importantly, it helped lockup the team’s fifth win of the season heading into the bye week.
