Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff had one of his best days, as he leads LA to a 33-7 win against the Houston Texans.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff looked about as comfortable as a second year QB can as Week 10 rolled around. On a Sunday where LA looked a bit slow out of the gate, Goff would find wide receiver Robert Woods AND a nice groove, beating the Houston Texans 33-7.
He would finish a solid day of work, going 25 of 37 for 355 and three touchdowns. On a day where running back Todd Gurley was being contained, Goff showed a lot of touch when he threw, completing passes nearly at will as he moved the Rams offense against the Houston pass defense.
Woods, who is proving to be a huge acquisition this offseason, would catch 8 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns, including a 94 yarder, marking the longest TD reception of his college and NFL career.
But this day was about something Rams fans are seeing in their ‘would-be’ franchise quarterback. The former No. #1 overall pick, who looked to be trending towards the dreaded “bust” label last season, is a far cry from the guy who finished a disastrous rookie season going 0-7.
He’s not that guy.
Goff is a player who is looking at some potential post season honors, and frankly should be. As good as running back Todd Gurley has been in his 2017 resurrection, Goff has rebounded under first year head coach and likely Coach Of The Year, Sean McVay. The second year QB has flourished with an offensive centric guy who gets it.
Something former disaster Jeff Fisher didn’t.
The Los Angeles Rams have the Holy Trinity of youth and talent at the three most critical positions on an NFL team:
It’s why they are 7-2, and looking at a possible playoff run a year after being a dumpster fire at 4-12.
Goff is no longer the bust many thought he was, but he may be an MVP before all is said and done.
