1. Goff records four turnovers
Did the Rams officially jump the gun by extending Jared Goff when they did back in September?
After looking at the progress made over the previous two seasons, it was easy to understand the decision by Los Angeles to lock Goff up for the long run, and the good news is there’s still plenty of time for the former No. 1 pick to get out of his early funk.
Goff was already facing heavy pressure after recording more turnovers (six) than touchdown passes (four) before Week 4 officially got underway, and that pressure is about to hit new levels after seeing the results against the Buccaneers.
By adding four more turnovers (three interceptions and one fumble) to his season total, the Rams have every reason in the world to feel concerned moving forward over their beloved quarterback.
Until Goff finds a way to perform better, that hefty contract is going to look like an absolute joke for Los Angeles since this was the last thing Rams fans expected to deal with after looking how sharp he looked for the most part since McVay took over.
Not even the issues Los Angeles is dealing with on the offensive line or the concerns surrounding Gurley can be used as an excuse at this point, because Goff is the leader of this offense, and he needs to make better decisions.
Hopefully with an intense battle with the Seattle Seahawks scheduled for Thursday, Goff can find a way to get back on track, or the pressure will only continue to get worse.
