Jared Goff named NFC offensive player of the week

Rams quarterback Jared Goff didn’t even need to play the whole game to win a weekly award.

Goff was named NFC offensive player of the week, after he torched the Giants Sunday.

He was 14-of-22 for 311 yards and four touchdowns, making it easy to let Sean Mannion finish up the third quarter of a 51-17 rout.

Goff has progressed in a number of areas this year, but his ability to make big plays downfield (touchdowns of 52 and 67 yards scattered in there) is among the top of the list of things for Rams fans to be encouraged about.

The fact he doesn’t have to finish such games is another, though they won’t get to play the Giants every week.

  1. This has to be taken with a big grain of salt. You don’t often get to play an NFL that has actually quit trying. Naturally he put up huge numbers, but it’s mostly because the Giants have punched out.

    Umm no it doesn’t. He was completing passes short and long when the game was still close. I’m not ready to anoint him as legit quite yet but I will say he has for the most part been fundamentally sound and played mistake free football this season.

  3. Goff’s passer rating for the season is 35 points higher than last year.

    That TD pass to Watkins was a thing of beauty. 60 yards on a rope. He’s very much improved, and still with only 15 career starts under his belt.

  4. It’s true, you don’t get to play the Giants every week. Sometimes you have to play the Colts, 49rs, Cowboys, Jaguars, and Cardinals.
