Wild Card Round - Los Angeles Rams v Seattle Seahawks

Quarterback Jared Goff has entered the game in the first quarter after Saturday’s starter, John Wolford, took a hit to the helmet.

On first-and-10 from the Seattle 20, Wolford scrambled to his right and started a head-first slide after gaining two yards. But safety Jamal Adams hit Wolford in the head with his shoulder as the QB was going down.

Wolford went right into the locker room following the play. He is officially questionable to return with a neck injury.

Goff did not start due to a thumb injury on his throwing hand. The quarterback is just under two weeks removed from surgery.

Already deep in Seattle territory, Los Angeles was able to get the game’s first points with Matt Gay‘s 40-yard field goal.

It’s the second consecutive year the Seahawks have injured the opposing team’s starting quarterback in the wild-card round. Last year, it happened to Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz.

  1. Fox are getting their money’s worth from that camera that keeps the subject in focus and blurs the background. It appeared a few weeks ago and they’ve not been afraid to use it every chance they get since.

  2. It is a Sony A74 on a DJI gimbal. It is great for on field celebrations and to bring you into the moment maybe after a TD but they need to dial that back a bit.

  3. Hey another year and another wildcard game for the Seahawks where they cheap shot the opposing team’s QB and put them out for the game. Carry on.

  4. Last year it was Clowney on Wentz — now it’s Adams on Wolford. You can’t tell me Pete Carroll doesn’t preach about head-hunting on QB’s. He’s a disgrace. Where’s the league? Blind eye.

  5. Ever since that cheap shot that knocked Wolford out of the game the Rams have -5 yards on offense with Goof in the game. I don’t look for that to change. This game is over. Goof is looking a lot like Carson Wentz. Gets a big payday then doesn’t care how he plays. All he cares about is his big paycheck. I’m sure he’ll play better when it’s a contract year.
