Comparing offenses

In 2018, the LA Rams had one of the best offenses in the NFL.  It was a balanced offense, where 459 rushing attempts nearly equaled 568 passes. The Rams ran the ball into the endzone 23 times and caught 32 touchdown passes. Even with so much success, Goff only threw for 12 interceptions.

Of those 32 touchdowns thrown, Goff certainly spread the wealth around. The Rams boasted seven players with multiple touchdowns in the passing game. Even more impressive? No player caught more than six TDs that year.

The wheels to the offense fall off

The wheels shook loose a bit in 2019. The Rams offense shifted heavily to the passing game, attempting 632 passes to only 401 runs. That allowed defenses to pin their ears back and pressure Goff, who had to settle for just 22 touchdowns.

The running game remained primarily that of RB Todd Gurley. While the Rams rushed for far fewer attempts and yards gained, still managed to put up 20 touchdowns. Only WR Cooper Kupp caught more than two TDs for the Rams in 2019.  However, the Rams mistakes escalated in 2019, where Goff threw for 16 interceptions.
