Los Angeles Rams: 3 Grades for their Week 6 win against the Broncos
Rams quarterback Jared Goff had a workmanlike kind of a day. The bombs-away performance he’d shown in previous weeks was more tempered against the Broncos. His 14 completions on 28 attempts yielded 201 yards and one interception.
Almost seems paltry when compared to what fans had been seeing.
Still, he was able to move the Rams offense in an effort to get points on the board. Then again when you have a running game anchored by Todd Gurley, 14 of 28 for 201 yards and a pick isn’t such a big deal.
If anything fans should be buoyed by the idea that an average day by the quarterback, a day when his touch is off, isn’t a slow walk to a loss. The Rams have enough weapons and a good enough defense that when your quarterback is off, the team can still win.
That’s a really good thing for this team.
Los Angeles winning in Denver with cold weather and snow around is another sign this team is the most legitimate Super Bowl contender heading into Week 7. Goff wasn’t awful, he wasn’t 300 plus yards great either. But on a day when he needed to be good enough to not put his team in a precarious position, he was.
Goff – C.
