Jared Goff will make NFL history during playoffs for Rams by facing Drew Brees, Tom Brady
Jared Goff and the Los Angeles Rams will take on the New England Patriots during Super Bowl 53 on Sunday.
In a matter of days, Super Bowl 53 will finally get underway, as the Los Angeles Rams will take on the New England Patriots in what is expected to be quite the entertaining battle between two teams loaded with talent on offense.
While numerous factors will come into play for the Rams when it comes to their chances of defeating the Patriots, the one that will most likely stand out the most is the play of Jared Goff at quarterback.
Three years ago, Los Angeles decided to take a risk by trading up in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft to land Goff at No. 1, which didn’t exactly get off to the best start, although it wasn’t entirely his fault.
Between a poor offensive line along with a weak receiving corps, it was unfair to blame Goff for his 0-7 record as a rookie, but luckily things are completely different now.
Flash forward to now, and the former California star finds himself in position being one win away from accomplishing what seemed unthinkable three years ago in winning his first Super Bowl title.
Win or lose, just the fact that Goff and the Rams are in this position is truly amazing to think about since this team seems built to be serious contenders for years to come. Even more exciting for Goff, once Sunday’s game officially gets underway, the Los Angeles quarterback will be making a little bit of history in the process, even if it’s not that big of a deal.
After helping the Rams take down Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship, Goff will now turn to hopefully doing the same against another all-time great quarterback in Tom Brady.
The fact that Brady will be playing in his ninth Super Bowl shows what kind of challenge Goff and the rest of his teammates face come Sunday, but also a few months ago, they knew there was a good chance this scenario was likely to happen.
By going into win-now mode this offseason by adding as much talent as possible on both sides of the football, Los Angeles knew New England would be a likely opponent if they were in fact able to reach the Super Bowl.
Goff making history by facing both Brees and Brady in consecutive games is quite an accomplishment, but what would make this even more meaningful for obvious reasons would be Los Angeles winning the Super Bowl as well, so here’s to hoping it happens for the Rams.
